Halloween | Regal North Hills Stadium 14 | Screen: Special Showings | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Thu., Oct. 29 2015



VARIOUS THEATERS—John Carpenter's 1978 tale of "The Night HE Came Home!" made Jamie Lee Curtis a Scream Queen, kick-started the slasher-movie genre that prospered throughout the 1980s and proved that a guy in blue coveralls and a white-painted Captain Kirk mask could be scary as hell. Despite lackluster sequels, remakes and rip-offs, Halloween holds up, from its tense first-person opening to Carpenter's chilling, era-defining minimalist score. It became one of the most profitable films of all time, grossing $70 million worldwide (the equivalent of $250 million today) on a $300,000 budget and slashed its way into the Library of Congress. This nationwide anniversary screening from "event cinema" purveyors Fathom Events and SpectiCast features an introductory discussion with Carpenter. See it at North Hills Stadium 14, Brier Creek Stadium 14 or Crossroads Stadium 20. Pairs well with a visit to Hillsborough's Myers House, a life-size replica of the movie's original murder site where its creators, Kenny and Emily Caperton, actually live. 7:30 p.m., $16, 1-855-473-4612, www.fathomevents.com.Zack Smith
