Spooky October!
The spooky season is upon us, and what better way to get in the spirt than with these classic horror films!


THE THING
Saturday, October 1 at 11:00 AM
Tuesday, October 4 at 7:30 PM
Based on the 1938 John W. Campbell Jr. novella Who Goes There?, THE THING tells the story of a group of American researchers in Antarctica who encounter the eponymous “Thing”, a parasitic extraterrestrial life-form that assimilates, then imitates other organisms. The group is overcome by paranoia and conflict as they learn that they can no longer trust each other and that any one of them could be the Thing!


HALLOWEEN
Saturday, October 8 at 11:00 AM

Tuesday, October 11 at 7:30 PM
HALLOWEEN tells the story of serial killer Michael Myers who was committed to a sanitarium as a child for the murder of his older sister, Judith Myers. Fifteen years later, he escapes to stalk and kill the people of the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois while being chased by his former psychiatrist, Samuel Loomis.


CANDYMAN
Saturday, October 15 at 11:00 AM
Tuesday, October 18 at 7:30 PM
This gut-wrenching thriller follows a graduate student whose research summons the spirit of the dead! When Helen Lyle hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand who is said to haunt a notorious housing project, she thinks she has a new twist for her thesis. Braving the gang-ridden territory to visit the site, Helen arrogantly assumes Candyman can’t really exist … until he appears, igniting a string of terrifying, grisly slayings. But the police don’t believe in monsters, and charge Helen with the crimes. And the only one who can set her free is Candyman.


NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
Monday, October 31 at 7:30 PM
A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, George Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role. This is the 4K restoration of George Romero’s classic, one screening only on Halloween night!
