Bigfoot movie at Mahoning in honor of National Sasquatch Day

Reported sightings of a large, hairy, humanoid creature in and around the area of Seneca Road in Mahoning Township in recent weeks have surged. Seven feet tall and seemingly a loner, this creature bears a strong resemblance, from eyewitness testimony, to the fabled “Bigfoot” aka “Sasquatch.”

In an effort to draw out this elusive creature for further study, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater is partnering with the Carbon Chamber and Economic Development Corporation to present a 35 mm double feature of “Harry And The Hendersons” (1987) and “Bigfoot” (1970), on National Sasquatch Day on Oct. 20.

The ’80s family classic “Harry And The Hendersons” stars John Lithgow and Melinda Dillon as the heads of a household hosting a benevolent Bigfoot, and trying to keep their gargantuan guest a secret.

“Bigfoot” stars John Carradine, Joi Lansing, Doodles Weaver, Christopher and John Mitchum, and Haji. It’s Bigfoot vs bikers when a creeper cryptid kidnaps ladies deep in the woods, and only a band of heroic hog-riders can save them.

The Chamber and Economic Development Corporation is planning a mini bigfoot festival before the movies begin for all guests with a movie pass.

Wear your favorite bigfoot costume for prizes and giveaways. The chamber will be posting on social media before the festival begins.

Do you have the biggest foot in the area? Enter the big foot contest for prizes. A unique menu will be posted soon include Sasquatch Stew, Big Foot Burgers and more.
