It’s A Munster Thing…Or Butch Patrick, The Drag-u-la Car & Halloween – Oh My!

The sights, smells and sounds of October are upon us. Crackling leaves, dancing flames of bonfires and the heady scent of cider mills linger upon the wind.

Anticipation abounds in the air as the dates draw near. Somehow, the words October 21 and October 22 are sweeter than the taste of candy corn. The switch has been thrown and it’s time to cackle in glee and shout it’s alive! Our first movie poster hangs proudly at the Redford Theatre and soon the doors will swell with swarms of people to see it. Well, maybe they aren’t all here to just see the poster in person…

So if you’re looking for something spectacular to do to celebrate Halloween. If you love The Munsters and want to see them on the BIG screen. Have a thing for werewolves and want to rub fur with, snap a photo, and get an autograph from Butch Patrick. Or if sitting in coffin cars makes your heart beat and you want to capture the moment by having your picture taken in the Drag-u-la Car courtesy of Motor City Reel Rides – we highly recommend this hauntingly fun Halloween event.

We’ll be hobnobbing with all the goblins including Paul from Treasures From Paul’s Basement (the movie sponsor with the cool classic movie posters), the rad guys from Motor City Reel Rides and THE Butch Patrick. Plus, travel along with Butch Patrick on his Whistle Stop Train Tour and join him in your own city. What could be more fun than that?

Oh, and if you want to say hi, we won’t be hard to find. Just look for the two grinning ghouls hugging the Munster, Go Home poster.

Happy hauntings from Blue Harvest Creative to all of you! We look forward to seeing everyone there.

The Historic Redford Theatre & Blue Harvest Creative

We love to design. We also love to watch movies. Especially the classics. What could possibly be more fun than doing either of these? Designing movie posters for the films that we love!

Blue Harvest is pleased to announce that we will be designing the movie posters for the classic films shown at the Historic Redford Theatre located in Detroit, Michigan. We are honored to be working with this wonderful organization. To say we are excited about the opportunity to give a fresh look to our favorite films is an understatement!

Our first design was the 1960s classic comedy Munster, Go Home. Shown are both versions of the poster. Poster #1 is the official movie poster and Poster #2 is the other version. We love ‘em both!

It’s already on display in the lobby. There is nothing more awe-inspiring than literally seeing your work come to life. Which, in this case, is our cool movie poster that stands an impressive 3 feet by 4 feet. We don’t mean to be biased but we think it looks incredible!

We’ve always been big fans of the television sitcom, The Munsters, so it was a thrill to design and compose. And, Butch Patrick (you know, “the” Eddie Munster) will be a special guest appearing at all of the shows. The movie will be showing October 21 and October 22, 2011. We can’t wait to attend!

Over the next several months, we’ll be debuting movie posters from seven classic films. These include the classic silent film The Hunchback of Notre Dame from 1922 and Miracle on 34th Street.

Love classic movies? The Historic Redford Theatre has a great lineup of films. If you happen to live nearby, take some time and check them out. The theatre is breathtaking and transports you back in time the minute you walk through the door. It’s a great place to revisit some great classics from yesteryear and watch them on the big screen! Not to mention seeing our really cool movie posters.

We look forward to sharing more of our work with you!
