|DARK SHADOWS fans met at the Pike Drive-In last month for a screening of HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS.|
DARK SHADOWS fans gathered in Montgomery, Pa., the weekend of Sept. 19-20 for a pair of outdoor screenings of HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS.
The Pike Drive-In hosted a retro horror marathon which not only featured HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS, but also WAR BETWEEN THE PLANETS, THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE (aka DEATH WEEKEND) and DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT. It's common these days for retro screenings to rely on DVD and Blu-ray discs, but the event at the Pike managed to secure a 35mm print from Warner Brothers of HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS.
"Each night sold over 100 tickets," said DARK SHADOWS fan Gene Caruso. "Saturday night was very busy with a line of cars arriving an hour in advance of the gates opening. When the film rolled on Saturday night you could hear the claps and screams echoing throughout the drive-in."
Members of the Facebook group Dark Shadows Lives were in attendance both nights. Caruso sent photos from the event, which you can see below.
