October 20 only
MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS and the Roxie present:
A Genuine Tribute to Stephen King & STRANGER THiNGS Double Bill
7:00pm STAND BY ME (1986)
Based on a story by Stephen King, Directed by Rob Reiner, w/ Wil Wheaton River Phoenix Corey Feldman Jerry O’Connell Kiefer Sutherland, John Cusack
Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Stephen King’s favorite film adaptation, this is one of the key films to influence the Duffer Brothers’ new Netflix TV show STRANGER THiNGS. As four young boys (including a legendary performance by River Phoenix) decide to set out on a secret expedition in 1959, their hopes of finding a local missing child are profoundly explored. This coming-of-age adventure will help rebuild your bitter, cynical heart while the timeless tunes of Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis & The Chordettes will pulsate through your veins. Brand new DCP presentation courtesy of Sony Classics. RATED R (for language.) Running time: 88 minutes. 1986. Preceded by a handful of other films that inspired the TV show STRANGER THiNGS.
9:00pm CREEPSHOW (1982)
Script by Stephen King, Directed by George A. Romero w/ Tom Atkins, Ed Harris, Stephen King, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, E.G. Marshall
This hilarious black comedy/horror film brought Stephen King and George Romero (NiGHT OF THE LiViNG DEAD) together to create five short stories inspired by 1950s E.C. horror comic books. You’ll scream at ghastly ghouls, cringe at weird kids, and shiver at the doings of evil doctors. With special effects master Tom Savini leading the way and Stephen King delivering one of the funniest performances of the decade, you won’t want to miss this rare 35mm screening of a film that the kids in the Duffer Brothers’ STRANGER THiNGS most definitely were obsessed with. “The most fun you’ll ever have being scared.” 35mm print courtesy of Warner Brothers. RATED R (for graphic violence & language.) Running time: 120 minutes. 1982.
