Get your Halloween thrills and chills with horror films in late October! We kick things off with a double feature of shockers from director Robert Fuest: THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES stars Vincent Price as a madman bent on vengeance after the accidental death of his wife; in THE DEVIL’S RAIN, William Shatner possesses an ancient book sought by Satanic cult leader Ernest Borgnine. Author Damon J.A. Goldstein will sign his The Cult Classic - Dr. Phibes books in the lobby before the show. Our annual Horrothon will keep you up from dusk to dawn with seven scary features: JASON X, BODY MELT, LINK, MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE, ZOMBIE 3, CURTAINS and ANTHROPOPHAGUS. Plus between-film craziness and free food and drinks!

Boris Karloff stars as a monster science created but could not destroy in the classic original FRANKENSTEIN followed by BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN - widely considered the high point of the 1930s Universal horror cycle - in which the monster demands a mate. We wrap things up with a new DCP restoration of GANJA & HESS, co-presented with the Broad and Ava Duvernay’s ARRAY Releasing. Flirting with the conventions of blaxploitation and horror, the revolutionary independent film stars Duane Jones (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) as a doctor's assistant who develops an insatiable desire for blood after he is stabbed with an ancient ceremonial knife
