Join us at the Rio Theatre on Monday, October 30 for a crazy-good for Halloween Classics Triple Feature!
Our Marathon Monday Movie Night celebrates three truly iconic films from one of the best decades e-ver for genre lovers - the 1970's, baby! We're including two classics from Brian De Palma - the rock opera THE PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (one of our most frequently requested titles!) followed by his iconic adaptation of Stephen King's CARRIE - and John Carpenter's newly remastered, legendary slasher film HALLOWEEN (which will be preceded by a special "featurette" with interviews, clips, and more!). This is going to be one seriously fun Monday Movie Marathon. Think you can handle it?
As always, audience costumes are very welcome - and encouraged!

HALLOWEEN (John Carpenter, 1978 / 91 mins / 18A) Jamie Lee Curtis cemented her life-long iconic status as a "Scream Queen" thanks in no small part to her remarkable feature film debut in John Carpenter's original HALLOWEEN, a groundbreaking movie that would go on to spawn countless sequels, several reboots, inspire numerous other filmmakers, and provide untold numbers of nightmares for a generation of movie lovers. On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six year old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith's Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims - including his own sister, Laurie (Curtis). Also starring Donald Pleasance.
