Since 1938's original from the genius of Orson Welles, there has been a 1953 movie with Gene Barry and another just a few years ago with Tom Cruise as the star.   Both films had great special effects.

And in 1978, along came the musical version of "War Of The Worlds" from Jeff Wayne---and it features an incredible narration from the late Richard Burton and music from David Essex and from Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues--who was just here in Bismarck performing with the Moody Blues.    We'll get everything underway Halloween night at 8pm!    It's "Theater Of The Mind" at it's best!    So--kick back, grab some Halloween candy and enjoy!
