Theater of Blood


Proof of vaccination is no longer required. Masking remains encouraged but optional.



Victoria Price will be on hand to discuss her father and the film that he considered his personal favorite.


Victoria Price brings her unique story to the national and international stage as an author, inspirational speaker, popular blogger, consultant and coach. She is an ordained interspiritual/interfaith minister, who leads workshops, retreats and tours around the world.

Price is a TedX speaker and the author of the critically-acclaimed Vincent Price: A Daughter’s Biography, as well as her 2018 memoir The Way of Being Lost: A Road Trip to My Truest Self. Her latest book is Living Love: 12 Heart-Centered Practices to Transform Your Life (Ixia Press, 2020).

Price, her work and her writing have been featured in USA Today, Art in America, Travel & Leisure, and The New York Times. She has appeared on Good Morning America, NPR’s Morning Edition and Fresh Air with Terry Gross, BBC Television & Radio and A&E’s Biography — as well as many podcasts, regional television and radio programs.

“The film attests to the freedom Vincent Price enjoyed in playing with his image, pushing potentially ludicrous concepts into realms of poetic feeling and psychological complexity.” – Slant Magazine


Edward Lionheart (Vincent Price) is incensed that his last season of performances in Shakespearean plays did not win him a prestigious acting award from critics. After an unsuccessful attempt at suicide, Lionheart is rescued by a group of drug-addicted bums. He then sets out to murder all of his critics, each with a different style of death taken from a Shakespeare play. When Lionheart faces head critic Peregrine Devlin (Ian Hendry), he offers Devlin a second chance to bestow the award.



Our special event poster for the screening is by Quiltface Studios. These event screen-printed posters will be on sale before and after the show in the lobby. Price: $20.00. Size 24″ X 9″. With Victoria Price’s autograph, the poster is $30.00.
