The museum’s Films in Key West series is held in conjunction with the exhibition “Avocation to Vocation: Prints by F. Townsend Morgan,” a collection of etchings that frequently depict scenes in Key West. Closing out the three-part series, the 1993 comedy Matinee stars John Goodman as Lawrence Woolsey, an independent filmmaker offering a special in-person appearance to accompany the screening of Mant!, his new thriller about a man-ant hybrid. Set in Key West as President Kennedy announces the presence of Soviet missiles in Cuba, political turmoil parallels the atomic radiation-themed horror of his movie. The evening includes a short introduction by a guest speaker, as well as a conversation following the film.
