On Friday, June 2nd and Saturday, June 3rd, join us under a Full Moon as things get hairy at The Mahoning Drive-In Theater during WERWOLF WEEKEND!
We’ll be saluting four films that brought lovingly lycanthropic 80s-style fearsome fangery to the big screen, on 35mm, with themed food items, photo ops, vintage trailers, and more!
Friday night is 1985 night, starting with that OTHER film Michael J. Fox made that year…See a teen wrestle with one of the most awkward onsets of puberty known to cinema, when an average high school student finds that it’s more than acne he has to contend with as the TEEN WOLF! He’s gonna need a bigger Bic!
Then we fire up the projectors and take aim at Stephen King’s SILVER BULLET, with Corey Haim as a wheelchair-bound teen who suspects something other than human is behind a series of killings in his small town.
Saturday night brings us back to 1981 with a titanic twofer of the two biggest werewolf films of the 80s!
The night begins as two friends backpacking across England neglect to stay off the moors, turning one into AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON! David Naughton stars in John Landis’ horror-comedy masterpiece, with groundbreaking, Academy Award-winning creature FX by Rick Baker, and an iconic oldies soundtrack.
Then, in the dark of night…on the quiet Mahoning lot…what’s that sound? It’s THE HOWLING, Joe Dante’s horror hit about an TV Reporter (Dee Wallace) who travels to a seaside colony for rest and relaxation after a run-in with a serial killer, only to find this pack of nature lovers may not be what they seem… Featuring stunning and disturbing transformation and makeup FX by Rob Bottin (THE THING).
So come out to The Mahoning Drive-In Theater, if you dare, for WEREWOLF WEEKEND and celebrate the hairiest, scariest, toothiest terrors of the 1980s!
Gates at 6pm each night. Showtime at Sundown.
