Upcoming Films in this Series
(1976, DCP, 98m) dir Brian De Palma w/Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving. Shy and friendless Carrie (Spacek) is taunted by her peers and dominated by her religious mother (Laurie), until her telekinetic powers are set loose. In this twisted take on adolescence, King and De Palma drop a little blood—and then a lot of blood. FRI 7:00 SAT 9:15 SUN 5:00
(1983, DCP, 110m) dir John Carpenter w/Keith Gordon, John Stockwell, Alexandra Paul. Nerdy Arnie Cunningham’s (Gordon) 1957 Plymouth, Christine, gives him purpose and mojo. But she has a mean streak and threatens to steal Arnie’s humanity. Carpenter’s film is a stinging corrective to 1980s nostalgia for 1950s car culture. FRI 9:00 SAT/SUN 7:00
