On Saturday, June 22nd, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater celebrates four decades of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, with FREDDY’S 40!

Join us as we throw a party for the man of your nightmares, with a 35mm double feature of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984) for its 40th anniversary, followed by WES CRAVEN’S NEW NIGHTMARE (1994), for its 30th anniversary! Stay up late with us and celebrate 40 years of Freddy…but DON’T FALL ASLEEP!

One of the scariest films of all time, Wes Craven’s A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET hit screens in 1984 and introduced Freddy Krueger to the world, a razor-gloved serial killer who haunts the nightmares of the children of Elm Street.  The film shocked audiences and a new titan of terror and cultural phenomenon was born!  Featuring Heather Langenkamp, Johnny Depp and Amanda Wyss at the terrified teens, John Saxon, Ronee Blakely and Lin Shaye as the adults who know more about Freddy than their kids realize, and Robert Englund as Freddy!

Once you survive the original NIGHTMARE, prepare yourselves for WES CRAVEN’S NEW NIGHTMARE (1994), a maniacally meta reexamination of the Krueger legend featuring the Craven and cast as themselves, finding that filmic Freddy may not be so fictional after all!  With Heather Langenkamp, Miko Hughes, and Robert Shaye!

And remember, as you drive home, every town has an Elm Street…

Gates open at 6pm.  The NIGHTMARE begins at sundown.
