Often called the goodwill ambassadors of scifi and horror fandom, Bob and Kathy Burns have a long and storied history in the world of genre entertainment. After perhaps spending a little too much time in a gorilla suit for a variety of shows and movies, Bob Burns took the hobby of memento collecting to such heights that he could genuinely start a museum of props, costumes, and other memorabilia from scifi and horror movies from various decades, including the armature of the original King Kong.
His passion for these movies is so legendary, and his generosity at sharing his passion with the world so genuine, that Bob and his wife Kathy have become renowned in fandom as the true keepers of scifi and horror film treasures. For decades now, they have shared stories, pictures, and their house, which for years was the site of one of the most intricate free Halloween haunted houses in the world. They were so beloved that Oscar-winning special effects artists would give their time freely to help them create props and scenes for those haunted houses.
On Sunday, July 6th at 5pm, The Film Geeks at the Digital Gym Cinema will present a special screening of BEAST WISHES: THE FANTASTIC WORLD OF BOB AND KATHY BURNS. Also present at the screening will be the documentary’s co-directors Frank Dietz and Trish Geiger.
