Double Thriller at Ross Dock – The Perils of Pauline & Creatures of the Black Lagoon

PerilsOnTheHudsonCreatureFlyerSuspense, danger and “seat of your pants” thrill is exactly what’s in store this weekend at Fort Lee Film Commission. The expression “cliffhanger” used to describe movies filled with all these emotions is the theme behind the creation of the Cliffhanger Film Festivals. The Cliffhanger Film Festivals are an annual series of spring and fall film festivals celebrating Fort Lee’s role as the first American film town as well as the birthplace of the American motion picture industry.

The Fort Lee Film Commission in collaboration with Palisade Interstate Park proudly presents a centennial screening of Chapter 1 of “The Perils of Pauline” located under Cliffhanger Rock at Ross Dock. Show time is scheduled for Saturday, September 13th at 7pm. This presentation will occur directly under the cliff where several scenes of the Perils of Pauline were shot one hundred years ago. Stick around for the 3-D screening of the classic “Creature From the Black Lagoon” following The Perils of Pauline. Only $10 per carload and all funds will be used to enhance programs of the Fort Lee Film Commission and Palisade Interstate Park.  Ross Dock’s access from your Bergen County rental at The Modern is so close, that microwaved popcorn from your kitchen will remain hot and delicious for show time.


In case of inclement weather, this event will be rescheduled for Saturday, September 20th at 7pm.
