It's Film Noir Night at Virtual Cinema a Go-Go on September 25

Virtual Cinema a Go-Go brings a night of film noir films to your computer screens! Join us on Friday, September 25, at 7 p.m., for Jail Bait (1954) and Five Minutes to Live (1961).

This event is free; all we need is your name and email address in this web form, and you will get the exclusive log-in information for the event. Besides these great bad movies, Darrell will have a giveaway* at the end of the first film during intermission. For this night only, we will be giving away a new KPR Coffee Mug. A link to sign up for the giveaway item will be placed in the zoom comment section periodically throughout the movie.

Jail Bait (1954) is probably the most coherent film by the notorious writer-director Ed Wood, helmer of such cinematic disasters as Plan 9 from Outer Space and Glen or Glenda?.

Five Minutes to Live (1961), sometimes known as Door to Door Maniac, stars Johnny Cash in his first movie role as a twitchy, wild-eyed psycho killer who sometimes serenades his victims on the guitar(!). 

This event is free of charge...but we welcome contributions to support Retro Cocktail Hour and all KPR programming by clicking here. If you have any questions, reach out to Bobbi at

This event requires access to a zoom account. You can download zoom here. When you get to that zoom download page, you will select "Zoom client for meetings." Once you have that downloaded, open the app and create your zoom account - that way you'll be ready to go for the movie Friday, August 28!

Thank you to our event sponsor, Dr. Chronister of Healing Smiles of Topeka.
