Cult&nbspfilmmaker Joe Dante (Gremlins)&nbspinvites you to&nbspjourney back to a time of outrageous movie-theatre gimmicks and larger-than-life B-movie thrills in this charming homage to the great sci-fi and horror flicks of the 1950s and 1960s.
John Goodman (ARGOThe Artist) stars as Lawrence Woolsey, a William Castle-inspired movie promoter, who brings his unique brand of flashy showmanship to the unsuspecting residents of Key West, Florida.
It's 1962&nbspand the Cold War is a growing whisper in the wind. Fifteen year-old fanboy Gene Loomis (Simon Fenton) is chomping at the bit to see Woolsey's brand new monster movie MANT! In town to promote his latest opus, Woolsey sparks interest&nbspwith his&nbspoutrageous atomic horror tale, weaving his&nbspone-of-a-kind movie&nbspmagic&nbspand entrancing&nbspthe community as only he knows how. 
But as the spectacle of the&nbspMANT!&nbsppremiere approaches so looms the omnipresent threat of the Cuban Missile Crisis, just 150 kilometres off the coast! With public paranoia in over-drive, Woolsey is&nbspaided by&nbspkeen Gene and&nbspleading lady Ruth (Cathy Moriarty, Raging Bull) to pull out all the stops and put on a show they won't soon&nbspforget.
