On April 3rd, 1968, one of the greatest science fiction films in the history of cinema opened in wide release to the unsuspecting audiences of America. Please join the Damn Dirty Geeks on Sunday April 3rd, 2016, as we celebrate the Second Annual PLANET OF THE APES DAY. RSVP to our event on Facebook then share it with your friends, human and simian alike!

The first annual PLANET OF THE APES DAY held on April 3, 2015 was a huge online success, with over 300 fans attending the virtual holiday from around our own planet! The Damn Dirty Geeks recorded a very special episode of our podcast starring comedian Dana Gould which paid fond and funny tribute to our favorite talking apes, sequel films and much more. Watch our POTA DAY video highlights from WonderCon in Anaheim in the player below:

Once again, we invite fans of the series to watch your favorite or all of the APES films, post your memories, your artwork, your collections and cosplay on the POTA DAY 2016 event page.  We’re planning to host a local POTA DAY gathering of fans in Los Angeles, and we’ll encourage other cities around the planet to join us via Skype and Facebook, of course. Details will follow in the coming months, but mark April 3, 2016 on your calendar now, and prepare to GO APE! Use #PlanetoftheApesDay and let’s get this new holiday trending on social media!
