10/2- Child's Play (1988) 30th Anniversary

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Chucky has become one of the icons of horror boogeymen that gets mentioned alongside of Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface and even Pinhead. Has it really been three whole decades since the Child's Play franchise began? Writer/director/creator Don Mancini's concept film has grown from a one joke premise ("What if one of those obnoxious 'must-have' fad toys was actually a killer monster?") to one of the horror genre's most sustainable brands, to a self-aware satire and back again.  Unbelievably outliving the careers of onetime contemporaries like the (currently moribund) Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th series with a new reboot coming out. In an irony worthy of the series itself, "Chucky" is at this point a more enduring pop-icon in his own right than the Cabbage Patch Kids and My Buddy doll lines that inspired him. Impressive for a character whose entire persona was originally intended to be a surprise-reveal at the end of a very different kind of film.

10/9- Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) In 3D!

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Although the 3D Creature from the Black Lagoon is a lesser-known Movie Monster classic, it is simply one of the best. After a geology expedition on the Amazon discovers the fossil of a skeletal webbed hand linking both land and sea animals, another crew returns to the river to look for more parts of the possible human-sea creature hybrid. When they find out that the previous research team has perished at the hands of an unknown attacker, the crew begins to fear that a nearby “black lagoon”, may have something to do with the unusual deaths. They are unaware that the amphibious creature known as “Gil-man” has been watching them—in particular, Dr. David Reed’s beautiful girlfriend, Kay Lawrence

10/16- Dead Alive (1992)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

So excited to be screening Peter Jackson’s third full length feature Dead Alive. Considered to be one of the goriest and funniest horror film since Evil Dead 2, the film follows the nerdy and socially awkward Lionel, who must contend with his domineering mother as he pursues a romantic relationship with the shopkeeper’s daughter, Paquita. When his mom is bitten by a rabid rat-monkey, Lionel unwittingly unleashes a horrific epidemic with disastrous and hilarious results. Dead Alive was a box office dud when it came out, but quickly became a cult favorite amongst gore-heads and slapstick fans for its sheer, unadulterated assault on the senses that culminates in an unforgettable house party sequence. A veritable orgy of blood and guts with (dare we say) some of the most iconic special effects in Jackson’s filmography, Dead Alive is not to be missed on the big screen!

9/30- The Fog (1980) * NEW 4K Restoration!

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

The Fog, one of my favorite John Carpenter films, is returning to theaters this Halloween thanks to a nifty 4K restoration from Studiocanal and we have it! Antonio Bay, a sleepy coastal Northern California town where nothing happens, is preparing to celebrate its hundredth anniversary of being a sleepy coastal town where nothing happens. Then everything starts to happen at once when the ghosts aboard the Elizabeth Dane, a leper colony ship that sank near Spivey Point a century ago (timing!), slosh ashore in a shroud of thick, luminescent fog. It turns out Antonio Bay was founded on a double-cross that tricked the leper colony out of their gold and lured their ship with false beacons into wrecking on the shoals. The murderous specters and their pointy fishing tools make a mess out of the lives of folks in Antonio Bay, including lighthouse keeper and radio DJ Stevie Wayne (Adrienne Barbeau), the anniversary event organizer Mrs. Williams (Janet Leigh), a hitchhiking artist (Jamie Lee Curtis), and a priest who’s discovered the dreadful truth about the town’s history (Hal Holbrook).
