Alameda’s Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge  is hosting a variety of events this summer that incorporate film screenings, live music, and alcohol. Curated by Will “The Thrill” Viharo </a>, these are mostly part of a series called ”Forbidden Thrills ," which features themed double features of only the  campiest  camp , and runs monthly through December.
This Thursday, however, is billed as “Comic Book Superhero Nite,” complete with costume contests, music from the Deadlies , and a screening of the day-glo 1966 film version of Batman, “batapulted” (and I quote!) from the Adam West-Burt Ward television series that my parents always called “Silly Batman” when I was little. And boy, does it deserve that epithet.
Seriously, though, it’s not often you come across a movie that features both an “exploding man-eating shark” and horrendous dialogue. Seize this opportunity while you can.
