If you like 3-D movies, you should have seen them in the 1950s; 3-D was invented then after all. But the fun didn’t stop at 3-D. For The Tingler, theaters installed vibrating seats, and flying skeletons circled patrons at screenings of The House on Haunted Hill. These innovations, and many others, were the product of one man, filmmaker William Castle. As strange as his methods were, they worked, and his films are considered classics. Castle gets the book treatment from author Joe Jordan, who comes to the North Bay on Saturday, March 21, to read from Showmanship and talk about Castle and his Haunted Hill—film clips included! Things get spooky at the Rio Theater, 20396 Bohemian Hwy., Monte Rio. 2pm. $5.
