*Please note this event was rescheduled to this new date and original tickets will be honored.

On Sunday, May 19th, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater presents our annual “Halfway To Halloween” event, a 35mm screening of Tod Browning’s Pre-Code shocker FREAKS (1932), with a pre-show horror, Halloween and oddities vendor market! Presented in association with the Lehigh Valley Horror Community.

Come celebrate the first horror film screening of our 75th anniversary season with the film that original audiences found so disturbing, it was censored, disowned by its studio, and banned in the UK for 30 years!  CAN YOU TAKE THE SHEER TERROR OF THE SIDESHOW?

SEE!  The beautiful female trapeze artist with ulterior motives betrothed to the brethren of FREAKS!

SEE! Johnny Eck…Half Boy…all man!

SEE! Prince Randian, the Living Torso, roll and light a cigarette without the aid of arms or legs!

SEE! The strange rite of acceptance!

SEE! Bizarre passion leading to weird revenge!

SEE! The Bearded Lady!  Siamese Twins! The Human Skeleton! The Little People!  And More!

A dramatic, disturbing, and at times touching film, with a cast of real sideshow performers who exhibit more humanity and depth than the “normal” people in the film, FREAKS is a landmark in horror and cult cinema, with a finale not soon forgotten.

Before you get your FREAKS on, join us for our annual  “Halfway To Halloween” market featuring local artists from our community, offering all manner of horror-themed wares on the Mahoning’s hallowed grounds, so arrive early and load up on freakishly fabulous finds!
