On Sunday, July 16th, Exhumed Films and The Mahoning Drive-In Theater honor the Godfather of Horror on the sixth anniversary of his passing with A TRIBUTE TO GEORGE A. ROMERO, featuring a dark and deadly double feature of two deep-cut fan favorites on 35mm!
We begin with an experiment in fear…
“Once there was a man whose prison was a chair. The man had a monkey, they made the strangest pair. The monkey ruled the man, it climbed inside his head. And now as fate would have it, one of them is dead”.
So read the poster of MONKEYSHINES (1988), a terrifying tale of a quadriplegic man (Jason Beghe) with a small simian household helper who turns tail and runs deep into darkness. Featuring Boo as Ella, the monkey of your nightmares.
Then, there are very good reasons to be afraid of the dark, as we present George A. Romero’s adaptation of Stephen King’s THE DARK HALF (1993). Inspired by King’s own revelation of this Richard Bachman pen name, writer Timothy Hutton’s pseudonymous literary alter ego escapes from the page and erupts into his life, seeking to drive a poison pen into his existence.
Come early for a Live DJ, Themed Eats and curated Romero Trailer Reels before each film.
Gates open at 6p. Showtime at Sundown.
General Ticket: $10 (per person) - General+Extended Pass: $20 (per person)
