Summer of 84 (Cast & Crew in Attendance! #SavetheRio Fundraiser)
6:30pm - Monday, Jul 30, 2018
Join us at the Rio Theatre on Monday, July 30 for a very special #SavetheRio fundraiser featuring an advance screening of RKSS' follow-up to their breakout indie hit TURBO KID, the upcoming horror thriller SUMMER OF 84.
Get ready for a star-studded night, as this will be the Vancouver-shot film's (which made major waves following its premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival and at Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival) first and only screening in English-speaking Canada prior to its US theatrical release.
Members of the cast and crew will be in attendance including Tiera Skovbye (RIVERDALE), Graham Verchere (FARGO), Cory Grüter-Andrew (OKJA, THE 100), Jason Grey-Stanford (A BEAUTIFUL MIND, MONK), as well as Brightlight Pictures' own Shawn Williamson (Chairman) and Jameson Parker (Director of Development).
All ticket proceeds from this screening are being generously donated to the #SavetheRio campaign.
"It's the type of outrageous ending that divides audiences and builds cult followings. Summer of '84 is a trashy classic that will absolutely rock midnight movie houses." (Pop Matters)
"This isn't a STRANGER THINGS/IT knock-off, it really does do its own thing and has its own tone...and then that tone goes to some ridiculously dark places." (Film Threat)
