Creepy Christmas

Alibi Midnight Movie Madness has never been one to buy into the schmaltzy concept of good, old-fashioned holiday cheer. This time last year at Guild Cinema, we brought you the “H.P. Lovecraft Christmas.” This year we’re following it up with a “Stephen King X-Mas” celebration. This coming Friday and Saturday, Dec. 27 and 28, Alibi and the Guild will show off a double-feature of Stephen King movie favorites. We’ve got 1986’s Maximum Overdrive (at 9:15pm) and 1989’s Pet Sematary (at 11:15pm). To make this extra special, we’ve hooked up with the artistic folks at Downtown Contemporary Gallery (105 Fourth Street SW). Now through Jan. 17, the gallery is hosting “The Creepshow: A Tribute to Stephen King.” Over 20 local artists are exhibiting paintings, prints and sculptures inspired by King’s creepy work. Two of the artists from that show, Jon Sanchez (“Jonito”) and Jeremy Montoya (“JM”), have made special, limited-edition, glow-in-the-dark posters for the Midnight Movie screenings. There’s one for Maximum Overdrive and one for Pet Sematary. They’ll be for sale at the Guild the nights of the screenings. And they will go fast! Tickets for the screenings are $8 general admission and $6 students.
