IN oRBIT: A RED BANK SCREEN SCREAM

Noworbiting_icon

Readers with cinemaphotographic memories will recall our tongue-in-cheek lineup of films that the Count Basie Theatre might have pulled together to commemorate the old Carlton’s 80th birthday this year — a whacky assemblage of mostly forgotten movies that have in common at least one explicit spoken or visual reference to the sweet little burg called Red Bank, New Jersey.

Well, it seems the folks over at the Clearview Cinemas on White Street heard us. Next week, they’ll be screening one of our suggestions: The Tingler, a trippy 1959 screamer by William Castle (below) and starring Vincent Price.

That’s just one of a truckload of movies coming to town in the approaching weeks that we’ve got the inside dope on. Another is a biodoc about New York saloonkeeper extraordinaire Bernard “Toots” Shor by his granddaughter, Rumson native Kristi Jacobson.

Want more? Get your fiber fill of celluloid only in today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit, back in service after technical glitch knocked us out all day Sunday…
