Halloween (1978)

Halloween stars Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis (in her film debut), and is the first installment in the Halloween franchise. The film is set in the fictional mid western town of Haddonfield, Illinois. On Halloween, six year old Michael Myers murders his older sister by stabbing her with a kitchen knife. Fifteen years later, he escapes from a psychiatric hospital, returns home, and stalks teenager Laurie Strode and her friends. Theatre N at Nemours, October 31st, 7:30 P.M.

 

 

War of the Worlds (the original)

H. G. Wells’ chilling novel of the invasion of the Earth by Martians and his observations dealing with panic and destruction becomes even more frightening when translated to the cinema. No one who has seen the Martian’s spaceships, swan-shaped, ticking, and hissing menacingly as they glide along leaving a wake of destruction, can forget their ominous impact. Free! Reservations strongly suggested. Smyrna Opera House, October 29th, 9 P.M.
