Description

*Double Feature!* HALLOWEEN Twenty years after the young Michael Myers inexplicably killed his older sister, the madman escapes from confinement and returns to Haddonfield, Illinois to once again unleash unspeakable evil on Halloween night. John Carpenter’s atmospheric low-budget thriller reinvented and cemented the template for American horror, and remains gripping, if not terrifying, to this day. (1978, 91 min, DCP ‘Scope) + ROCK 'N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL The new principal (Mary Woronov) of the unruly Vince Lombardi High is determined to enforce strict order. Her regime is immediately challenged by the free-spirited Riff Randall (P.J. Soles), who enlists punk icons The Ramones in her crusade for rock ‘n’ roll revolution! This cult favorite from Allan Arkush could never be made today, and features great tunes from Fleetwood Mac, Alice Cooper, Devo, and Paul McCartney & Wings, as well as terrific live footage of The Ramones. (1979, 84 min, DCP)
