Horror fans in the LA area: Looking for something to do this Halloween? Then look no further, my horror fiends.
Thanks to American Cinematheque (a non-profit that presents the best of film and video), two LA theatres will dish up a host of horror classics to satiate your ghoulish appetites.
The 7th Annual Dusk-to-Dawn Horrorthon returns to Aero Theatre this Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 PM. Spend all night with fellow horror fans as you enjoy six films back-to-back, free food and drinks, giveaways, trailers, crazy shorts, and surprises! The six films hitting the big screen are: HELLRAISER, MOTEL HELL, THE DEVIL’S RAIN, CHRISTINE (one of my favorite classics), THE LIVING DEAD OF MANCHESTER MORGUE (aka LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE), and THE MANITOU. General admission is $20, $18 for students/seniors, and $15 for Cinematheque members.
If you can only stomach a double feature then check out DRACULA and HORROR OF DRACULA on Monday, October 29 at 7:30 PM. Come early for a comic book signing of the Monsterverse’s FLESH AND BLOOD: BOOK ONE and BELA LUGOSI’S TALES FROM THE GRAVE in the Aero lobby at 6:30. General admission is $11, $9 for students, and $7 for Cinematheque members.
Creeping onto the big screen on Halloween night is CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON in 3D! Julie Adams, who played Kay Lawrence in the film, will sign copies of her book The Lucky Southern Star: Reflections From the Black Lagoon at 6:30 PM in the Aero lobby. Discussion following the film with Julie Adams, moderated by Alan K. Rode. Special 3D ticket pricing is $13 general, $11 for students/seniors, and $9 member.
If you’re a lightweight or if you want to take the kiddies out for a night of fun, check out GHOSTBUSTERS in 70MM, showing at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday and Saturday, October 26–27, at 7:30 PM. Finally, the 1922 classic NOSFERATU celebrates its 90th anniversary on Sunday, October 28 at 4PM. This special event will feature live musical accompaniment. General admission for either film is $11, $9 for students/seniors, and $7 for Cinematheque members.
That oughta keep you horror fans busy for a while. Don’t say we never did anything for you.
