UPDATE: Here's a reminder about this weekend's screening of HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS and NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS.
Life doesn't present many opportunities to see HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS on the big screen. It offers even fewer to see its controversial sequel, NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS, on anything larger than the TV set in your living room. Next month, though, a drive-in theater in Pennsylvania is planning to screen both films in celebration of the 50th anniversary of DARK SHADOWS.
From DS superfan Gene Caruso:
"This year marks the 10th Anniversary for Drive-In Super Monster-Rama and the 50th Anniversary for DARK SHADOWS. Monster-Rama is a two-day event which occurs annually every September and this year it will be screening great quality 35mm prints of both Dark DARK SHADOWS movies on Saturday, Sept. 10."But wait! There's more! The original DARK SHADOWS movies will be followed by the Amicus feature THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD and AIP's THE BAT PEOPLE. Admission is $10 per person. Caruso says a few other DARK SHADOWS surprises are also planned for the event, as well a raffle offering items from both films signed by members of each cast. Creepy Classics will be on hand selling DVDs, magazines and T-shirts.
"This is a great chance to relive those old drive-in days," Caruso said. "The Riverside has the best snack bar around and camping is available on site and hotels are close. Come early and enjoy the pre-show socializing, shopping and eating."
The screening is scheduled to take place rain or shine at the Riverside Drive-In Theatre, located on Route 66 N, Vandergrift, PA, 15690, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh. For further information and questions, visit the Drive-In Super Monster-Rama page on Facebook.
