Tomorrow is First Friday Fright Night which means cult and horror films at the Colonial. This time around we’re showing Army of Darkness (1992, Sam Raimi) on 35 mm! Bob Trate has already dropped off his Limited Edition DVD of the film so we can show you the alternate ending too. We also have a new batch of the super cool, glow in the dark FFFN t-shirts ready to go. They’re $15 a piece and help support our FFFN programming.

Our theme for the classic films this month is Better on the Big Screen, starting with The Searchers this Sunday at 2PM. Big thanks to Halladay Florist for sponsoring this film! Nick Halladay will be here to introduce the film along with Bob Trate, our go-to guy for all things classic, cult and horror (Bob also intros the Fright Night films).

Thanks for your support and we’ll see you at the theatre!
