3D Movies After Dark

Cancelled for this week due to poor weather! Stay dry!

 

In Celebration of 3D film.

3D Movies After Dark‘ is an event for BKPS members, hosted by the Brooklyn Paranormal Society. Each meeting convenes to explore a new fascinating film, presented in Anaglyph 3D.

Anaglyphs are made by taking two photographs of a scene from cameras separated by 6 cm. The two frames are then each colored  red , and  blue ; then are combined in to one image.

The combined image when viewed with appropriate glasses appears three dimensional, and allows a more in depth viewing experience! 

Although 3D movies were initially made popular in the 1950’s by linear polarization technology, the industry later switched to anaglyph because many movie viewers were becoming nauseous.

The BKPS film library boasts an impressive selection of anaglyph 3D films on VHS and DVD, as well as a vast collection of movies on other mediums. Our collection spans from the 1970s on.

 

For consideration are films covering topics such as sci-fi, fantasy, horror, documentaries and more bizarre. We have a comprehensive collection of alien, ufo and conspiracy VHS tapes for example, of interest to the amateur or veteran ufologists.

The film for the evening is chosen before the screening begins, so come early for a vote. The clubhouse is an amazing space on Coffey St., a very scenic and historically dense location.

The Brooklyn Paranormal Society Clubhouse is located at 59 Coffey St., Brooklyn NY, 11231.

Hunting the Lady of the Lake

The supernatural legend of the Lady of the Lake has compelled Long Island locals for over forty years, and a resurgence in the popularity of paranormal phenomena amongst millennials has only increased the amount of discussion surrounding Lake Ronkonkoma.  Let’s rewind for a moment and set the stage.

Lake Ronkonkoma is Long Island’s biggest freshwater body, known for its immense beauty and quiet tranquility. Located just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city, it provides a welcome escape for the creative, the dreamer, and the introvert who finds the concrete jungle overwhelming.

Many New Yorkers appreciate the peaceful atmosphere the lake provides, and it has remained a hidden gem beloved by locals for many decades.

At the turn of the century, a quaint lakeside resort was built, attracting wealthy tourists and catching the attention of William Vanderbilt, who eventually built his own private road leading from the heart of Manhattan right the shores of Ronkonkoma.

Another group of people are fond of the lake, for quite a different reason. In the 1970s, Suffolk County ghost hunters, intrigued by the whisperings of their community about a ghost upon the lake, began pilgrimaging to the shores of Lake Ronkonkoma in the hopes of catching a glimpse of what was said to be a female apparition with siren-like qualities.

There have always been strange rumors circulating about this lake. Though it is fairly normal in appearance, many believe without a shadow of a doubt that there are dangerous whirlpools in its depths. Others are convinced it is attached to a series of labyrinthian underwater tunnels leading to a river in the state of Connecticut.

None of these beliefs have much scientific bearing, as far as we know. They are likely nothing more than local folklore, passed along from parents to their children as warnings to stay away from the murky depths. Nevertheless, they have contributed to a much more terrifying legend that refuses to go away: the Lady of the Lake.

UFOs Go Mainstream: The Pentagon’s Secret UFO Program Revealed

This week may go down in UFO lore as the week UFOs went mainstream. Kind of like The Year Punk Broke, but with flying saucers instead of flannel and power chords. OK, maybe it isn’t full government disclosure, yet. But it sure makes a good Christmas stocking stuffer for many ufologists who are looking for confirmation, any confirmation, that aliens do in fact exist.
