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.

First up, the Resistance sets up residence in our huge back room, asks for suggestions, and

Supernatural 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
