NY! Fango’s Michael Gingold helps host Halloween horrors at Alamo Drafthouse YonkersFango Local,Movies/TV,News Fangoria Staff
With our favorite holiday just around the corner, New York’s Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers is keeping in the spirit with screenings of two very different late-’70s fear films next week: HALLOWEEN and THE VISITOR.
In addition to the celebrity-hosted showings of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, BUBBA HO-TEP, JOHN DIES AT THE END and SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER this weekend (see info here), the Drafthouse Yonkers (2548 Central Park Avenue) will present two showings of John Carpenter’s legendary 1978 HALLOWEEN on Wednesday, October 30 at 7 p.m and Thursday, Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. to really get fans in the seasonal mood. Then, from the sublime to the ridiculous, there will be a pair of screenings of THE VISITOR, the truly insane 1979 horror/sci-fi/religious mashup from director Michael J. Paradise/Giulio Paradisi and producer Ovidio G. Assonitis (BEYOND THE DOOR, TENTACLES), Friday, November 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 2 at 10 p.m. Fango’s own Michael Gingold will be on hand to introduce the Oct. 30 HALLOWEEN and Nov. 1 VISITOR shows. In addition, Universal-monster fans will want to check out the 1941 Lon Chaney Jr. classic THE WOLF MAN at the Drafthouse on Monday, Oct. 28 and THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN on Tuesday, Oct. 29, both at 7 p.m. For more info on all of these and to order tickets, head over to the Drafthouse Yonkers website.
