Vincent Price Centennial Celebration Coming to St. Louis

This coming May 27th marks the 100th birthday of horror icon Vincent Price. To honor the man who helped give the genre a revivifying shot in the '60s with a fab string of Poe adaptations, his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, is hosting the delightfully titled Vincentennial. Price classics will be screening at a number of museums, universities, and parks throughout the city. Fans can also expect discussions with Price's daughter and biographer Victoria and the mastermind behind his Poe pictures, Roger Corman. An avid art collector, Price would also be pleased to know that exhibits of related artwork and memorabilia will be displayed at the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries and Star Clipper.

The Vincentennial begins on May 19th with an 8:30PM screening of The Fly at the Missouri History Museum's MacDermott Grand Hall, and continues through the 28th. Check in at the official Vincentennial web site for updates and details.
