“B” Movie Night at the Bijou March 30 6pm presents The Incredible Shrinking Man:  starring Grant Williams, April Kent from Universal Pictures; Directed by Jack Arnold Black and White; Not Rated; 81 minutes; 1957

THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN provides a disturbing perspective on man’s place in the universe. From the eerie moment that he is unexpectedly caught in a mysterious, luminous mist, Robert Carey begins gradually but relentlessly to shrink. The film’s imaginative use of special effects features the hero’s panic-stricken escape from a clawing house cat, and his efforts to obtain cheese from a mouse trap in order to survive.
