"They're here!" A typical family in a quiet suburb of a normal California faces a frightening ordeal when its home is invaded by a Poltergeist. Late one night, 10-year-old Carol Anne Freeling (Heather O'Rourke) hears a voice coming from inside the television set ... At first, the spirits that invade the Freelings' home seem like playful children. But then they turn angry. And when Carol Anne is pulled from this world into another, Steve and Diane Freeling (Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams) turn to an exorcist (Zelda Rubinstein) in this horror classic from director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre films) and producer and screenwriter Steven Spielberg.

This 40th anniversary event includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies.

611 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036

35mm can be beautiful, but 16mm is personal. It’s the weird magical object in your parents’ attic, the sacred feeling thing that you might find at a garage sale – it’s being inducted into a secret society, an older neighbour giving you a joint. It’s the middle child after 8mm, the messy kid brother chuckling to themselves. It’s the most mustachioed of the film formats, if you’re still hanging along with this dumb metaphor. This six-feature marathon of straight-up horror havoc comes from the archives of Secret Sixteen: L.A.’s sickest hand-picked collection of this portable, wondrous film format. Join Secret Sixteen founder Mike Williamson, Josh Miller (Friday Night Frights) and Bret Berg (Museum of Home Video) for a 12-hour blast of creature-feature comforts.  These sickos decided that we needed to go even harder than our marathon last year by busting open their trove of Halloween spooks and scares that lovingly hearkens back to some dingy bong basement memory. Titles aren’t revealed until they unspool onscreen — Get ready to squirm at savage vermin, screwed-up scientists, gooey gutterballs, post-nuke bogeys, swampy ogres and demented deities!

October, Select Nights 
The Secret Movie Club Theater 1917 BAY ST 2ND FL
Million Dollar Theater 307 South Broadway Los Angeles, CA 90013

Classic and cult horror films back in theaters with the Secret Movie Club. They've got both Blobs, Mike Mignola & more.

The interesting thing here is that artist Hideyuki Kikuchi always felt the original 1985 Vampire Hunter D (made exclusively for the then-just exploding home video market for teens and college students) was made on the cheap and actively championed for a kind of re-do with Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

First up, the Resistance sets up residence in our huge back room, asks for suggestions, and
will improv a hilarious horror movie, live, based on your suggestions at the beginning.

Then after a 20 minute intermission, we move into the main theater where we run a 35mm print of 1980 Italian schlock horror jaw dropper Patrick Still Lives about a boy who comes out of a coma after a car accident and uses his newly found psychic powers to brutally kill folks.

The Resistance have their work cut out for them as they try to make a scene of a flying fire poker sexually assaulting and then killing a character (the actor complained the director always loved to film such scenes in the winter when everything was really cold) into something...acceptable?

Francis Ford Coppola revamped Bram Stoker's masterpiece into a sumptuous love story fit for the decadent sprawl of a historic jewel box theatre.

Bodice-bursting DJ sets before and after the film will set hearts aflutter. Costumes are required, so serve face and neck in our exquisitely enchanting Free Photobooth. Our full bars will have the concoctions you desire to make your night all vamp, no ire. Missing this event is the real horror. Dapper vampire costumes or gothic glamour formal attire required.

Double Door

Inspired by a New York legend, this grand guignol melodrama showcases Broadway actress Mary Morris in her only film role as the demented matriarch of the fabulously wealthy Van Brett family. Victoria will stop at nothing, not even murder, to maintain authority and promote her avarice. Morris convincingly plays a personality decades beyond her physical age of 39, and an evil older than time.


In the Halperin brothers’ artful follow-up to White Zombie, Carole Lombard plays a grieving young heiress preyed upon by spiritualists and spirits. During a phony séance, the genuine ghost of an executed murderess takes possession of her body, the better to reach the man who betrayed her, the fake medium. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of Supernatural is its depiction of characters who laugh in the face of death, a risus sardonicus that occurs three times in the course of the story before its apotheosis at the climax.

 During the transition to sound production, Hollywood studios faced a dilemma: How to export English-language films to lucrative non-English speaking foreign markets. It was easy enough during the silent era—just swap out the title cards—but the spoken word presented a unique challenge. Some studios, such as Universal, chose to make multiple versions of the same film featuring the same story told with different actors speaking their native languages. The most famous example of this approach is the Spanish-language version of Dracula in 1931, not only because it survives intact after being thought lost for decades, but also because it arguably rivals—some would say exceeds—the artistry of its counterpart.
