Restored for its 40th anniversary! Michael Myers returns to the small town of Haddonfield to kill again in Halloween, the most successful independent horror movie of all time.


Halloween night, 1963. A six year old Michael Myers murdered his 17-year-old sister. He was locked away at Smith’s Grove- Warren Sanitarium, but on October 30, 1978, while being transferred, a now 21 year old Michael escapes Smith’s Grove and returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield. Seventeen-year-old Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), Annie, and Lynda, are busy thinking about the fun of Halloween night. Little do they know that Michael Myers has come home. Their only hope is Dr. Loomis, Michael’s childhood psychiatrist but the bogeyman is close to his prize for the night: Laurie! (USA, 1978, 93 min., R, English | Dir. John Carpenter)
