Our latest Cinema a Go-Go crawls into Liberty Hall with a pair of classic ‘50s sci-fi extravaganzas ­— The Crawling Eye and The Creeping Unknown. Both based on British TV serials, these low budget masterpieces have it all — giant tentacled eyeballs, large creeping blobs from outer space, headless corpses, oozy slime trails and other fun stuff. It’s just the thing for a family night at the movies.

Sure, this picture of the Kansas Statehouse looks a little gloomy, what with the overcast skies and all. But when you have the chance, take a trip inside. From top to bottom, this building is a magnificent showpiece of art and architecture.
