3:00 p.m.: House of Whipcord – The movie starts with the credit: “This film is dedicated to those who are disturbed by today’s ax moral codes and who eagerly await the return of corporal and capital punishment.” Do you really need more?
5:00 p.m.: Freaks – If you liked American Horror Story: Freakshow, see the likely inspiration! “One of us! One of us!”

8:00 p.m.: Body in the Web – Who needs Lavalantula when you have plane crash survivors trapped on a remote island infested with spiders. Obviously when bitten, they turn INTO spiders.
9:30 p.m.: How to Survive a Zombie Attack – Back by popular demand!
10:30 p.m.: The Tingler – With a name like “The Tingler”, you should already be on board. The fact that it stars Vincent Price is just icing on the cake!

Tickets are available at the door for individual movies, or for the whole day! $5 for any single movie, but for $15 you can come and go as you please throughout the day or let your body go numb from all 12 hours of horror with diehard fans.

COASST Marine Debris Training Session @ Ocean Shore Convention Center
May 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
COASST Marine Debris Training Session @ Ocean Shore Convention Center | Ocean Shores | Washington | United States

COASST Marine Debris participants survey local beaches and collect data on the characteristics and location of debris – data that will ultimately be used to map the source and transport pathways of debris, as well as the potential harm to people, wildlife, and local coastal ecosystems. Volunteers need NO prior experience, just a commitment to survey a specific beach (about ¾ mile) each month.

If you are interested in participating, join COASST staff for the training session. There is no charge to attend the training, but plan to provide a $20 refundable deposit if you would like to take home a COASST volunteer kit. Training activities take place indoors. Beach surveys are best conducted in groups of 2 or more – please come with a survey partner in mind or plan to join a team during training.
