The CONELRAD 100 of Atomic Films

TITLE: MATINEE

Joe Dante's Matinee - 1993


MATINEE

DIRECTOR: Joe Dante
YEAR: 1993

An alternately bittersweet and hilarious coming-of-age story set in Florida during the Cuban Missile Crisis. John Goodman plays a William Castle-like filmmaker who comes to town to hawk his latest picture in the midst of all the panic. Atomic character actor William Schallert lampoons his B-movie roots in the movie-within-a-movie MANT - "half man, half ant, all terror!"

ATOMIC HYGIENE: Cold War Short Films
OCCUPYING A PUBLIC SHELTER
Like 'Information Program Within Public Shelters,' this is another over-optimistic introduction to post-Bomb shelter life courtesy the U.S. government. This amusing film has such an incongruous assortment of scenes that it makes underground living seem like some sort of family summer camp sponsored by the military.
