Vortex Blazers of 1982
SATURDAY AUGUST 24 TRIPLE FEATURE ($14/$11)

POLTERGEIST 2:30, 7:00
Remember when your local television station ended its broadcast day with a generic film clip playing “The Star Spangled Banner”? Remember the sight and sound of snowy fuzz when the station signed off? The Freeling family will never forget! Director Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) and producer Steven Spielberg depict all suburban hell breaking loose with the demonic intent of an evil clown doll in this acknowledged horror classic. (1982, 122 min, 35mm ‘Scope)

+ E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL 4:50
Returning to the rich pastures of American suburbia, [Steven] Spielberg takes the utterly commonplace story of a lonely kid befriending an alien from outer space, and invests it with exactly the same kind of fierce and naïve magic that pushed Disney’s major masterpieces like Pinocchio into a central place in 20th century popular culture. –Time Out. Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Drew Barrymore, Peter Coyote, and the soaring music of John Williams star. (1982, 115 min, 35mm)

+ HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH 9:15
Doctor Dan Challis (‘80s mainstay Tom Atkins) finds himself at the heart of a mystery involving a seemingly innocent mask maker, a company whose aggressive ad campaign may be counting down to an apocalypse on Halloween night. A true cult favorite, Tommy Lee Wallace’s engaging horror sequel abandoned the slasher model of previous Halloweens for a fanciful and scary new story involving Celtic myths and witchcraft, boosted by an electronic score by Alan Howarth and OG horror maestro John Carpenter. (1982, 98 min, 35mm ‘Scope)
