One of the most iconic horror films of all time will be coming to select Classic Cinemas theatres just in time for Halloween. John Carpenter’s original “Halloween” ® will be hitting the big screen on Tuesday, October 30th at 7:30 PM. This is a special 35th anniversary film with a bonus short that explores the movie’s impact on the horror genre called “You Can Kill the Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween,” directed by Fangoria’s Justin Beahm.

Released in 1978, “Halloween” is often credited as the start of the slasher horror movie craze. The film was the first installment in what became the Halloween franchise. The plot is set in the fictional Midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois. On Halloween in 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers murders his older sister. Fifteen years later, he escapes from a psychiatric hospital, returns home, and stalks teenager Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her friends. Michael’s psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis suspects Michael’s intentions, and follows him to Haddonfield to try to prevent him from killing again.
