NY! See a 30th-anniversary “FRIGHT NIGHT” screening in 35mm at Alamo Drafthouse with Fango’s Michael Gingold!Movies/TV,News Fangoria Staff
It’s been three decades since vampiric Jerry Dandridge first scared and seduced audiences, and he’s coming back to the big screen at the New York-area Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, with one of the FANGORIA team hosting!
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of its August 1985 release, Tom Holland’s FRIGHT NIGHT will screen in 35mm at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers, just north of Manhattan (2548 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers, NY), on Thursday, August 6 at 9 p.m., introduced by Fango’s Michael Gingold. Chris Sarandon joined the pantheon of great screen bloodsuckers as Dandridge, who moves next door to teen horror fan Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale). When no one else will believe Charley’s suspicions about his new neighbor—who’s got eyes for his girlfriend Amy (Amanda Bearse)—he turns to washed-up actor/horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall) for help. A perfect mix of horror and humor, FRIGHT NIGHT has been sequelized and remade but never equaled; come have a frightening night of your own at this special show!
