This coming weekend at the Packard Campus Theater (19053 Mt. Pony Road / Culpeper, VA)
Be afraid, be VERY AFRAID! There are “Monsters Among Us” (our theme for this month) and some are man and some are man-made!
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28 @ 7:30 p.m.
Suspiria (20th Century-Fox, 1977)
Dancing monsters? No, but dancers subjected to the acts of a monster, yes. Remade in 2018, we will be screening the original made in 1977.
Color, 152 minutes.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 @ 2:00 p.m.
Frankenstein (Universal, 1931)
The classic monster movie made in the early days of the talkies when there was talking but no underscore. Musician Ben Model will provide an underscore live on the Packard Campus Theater’s theater organ.
The original “Frankenstein” was added to the Library’s National Film Registry in 1991. To learn more about the film, read this essay by film scholar Richard T. Jameson.
B&W, 70 minutes.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 @ 7:30 p.m.
Rosemary’s Baby (Paramount, 1968)
A young newlywed mother experiences terror from the monster within and from the monsters on the outside. Halloween may not get much creepier.
The film, starring Mia Farrow, was added to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 2014.
Color, 137 minutes.
