The Aurora Theatre brings to the more big screen fun to the Halloween

WKBW radio’s 1968 version of H.G Wells “War of the Worlds”, considered the most famous radio broadcast in Buffalo history, will again be the focus this Halloween with the screening of the documentary “WKBW Radio’s War of the Worlds, The Legacy Continues” at the historic Aurora Theatre Wednesday October 30th at 7 PM.
The documentary screening at the Aurora Theatre on the 30th will be followed by a live Q & A featuring WBEN personality and Hall of Fame broadcaster Sandy Beach along with fellow Hall of Fame inductee Pat Feldballe. The night will be hosted by veteran broadcaster and documentary producer Bob Koshinski, owner of All Services WNY and sponsored by the Buffalo/Niagara Film Office.
The production reveals the challenges faced by the late Jeff Kaye in creating a radio classic that caused a minor panic in WNY and has been touted as one of the finest re-telling of the H.G Wells sci-fi classic. Interviews done in 1989 with Kaye, Irv Weinstein, Jim Fagan and Dan Kriegler, all involved in the 1968 broadcast on WKBW radio are featured. Also, in the documentary are iconic radio legends Sandy Beach, Dan Neaverth, John Zach, Feldballe, Jim Pastrick, Tom Atkins and 97 Rock’s John Hager.
