Every third Thursday of the month, the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History offers free admission from 5 to 8:30 p.m. This Thursday, May 16, the Museum is having a special “Movie Night at the Museum.” Ann Lerner, film liaison for the City of Albuquerque, will be on hand to discuss what is happening in New Mexico’s film industry. To get you in the proper drive-in movie mood, local musician Freddie Chavez will play oldies from the ’50s and ’60s in the Museum’s amphitheater. Topping off the festivities, there will be a free screening of the classic 1958 monster movie Earth vs. the Spider—which was partially shot right here in New Mexico. Comedienne Jessica Osbourne, film blogger Daniel Boyer and Bubonicon honcho Craig Chrissinger will be there providing a “Mystery Science Theater 300”-style couch commentary for the film.
