Every October we love filling the teen area with arachnids!  This year, please help us construct some ginormous monster spiders and webs as well as nests spilling over with their babies. Eight Legged Freaks (2002, Rated PG-13) will be screened to get you in a creepy, crawly type of mood. Registration is not required. Sponsored by the Friends of PPL. Synopsis: Residents of a mining town discover an unfortunate chemical spill that has caused hundreds of spiders to mutate overnight to the size of SUV's. It is up to the townspeople to rid the small town of these giant spiders.
