There are few theaters in the country that know how to show a film like The Heights Theater in Columbia Heights. Last year, for their Halloween extravaganza, they showed a wonderful print of the classic William Castle film, House on Haunted Hill, starring Vincent Price. They screened the film in something called 'Emergo', a gimmick that had us guessing until, at the pivotal climactic moment in the film, a dangling, illuminated skeleton swung over the crowd from the balcony. Awesome, I know.
Well, this year, the spooktacular film screening is Whatever Happened to Baby Jane with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. That alone should entice you to come out to see the movie, and to celebrate the greatest of months with the greatest of holidays. In addition to the film, though, Horrorwood artist and compatriot Brent Schoonover and I will be in attendance. We are offering free copies of a single issue of Horrorwood (something to read while munching on pre-film popcorn), and will have copies of the trade, and complete sets of the floppies, for sale before and after.
The show starts at 7:30PM. Tickets are &$8.00.
Hope to see you there!
