It's Tiki Night at Cinema a Go-Go, July 24

Cinema a Go-Go is back in July with a tiki twist! Join us on Friday, July 24, 7 p.m., for two titanic tiki treats from 1958 - The Wild Women of Wongo and She Gods of Shark Reef.

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 this great bad movie, Darrell will have a giveaway* at the end of the first film during intermission. A link to sign up for the giveaway item will be placed in the zoom comment section periodically throughout the movie.

Put on your finest tropical attire, mix yourself a Mai Tai and join us for two titanic tiki treats from 1958.

Partially filmed in Florida's Coral Caste, Wild Women of Wongo is an utterly ridiculous tale of an island populated by gorgeous women and brutish ape men. The story is that playwright Tennessee Williams directed a few scenes of this wretched mess.

She Gods of Shark Reef, meanwhile, is another Roger Corman cheapie which at least has the advantage of being filmed on location in Kaua'i. In this epic, two brothers are shipwrecked on a Tropical Island inhabited by nubile young women (these Tropical Islands are all the same). There's trouble when it's discovered the island babes have a stash of valuable pearls.

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 bwashechek@ku.edu.

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, July 24!

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