Groovy!—B-movie king Bruce Campbell (star of the Evil Dead films, Bubba Ho-Tep and the “Xena” TV series) will be coming through Albuquerque next month on his whirlwind American tour. Campbell is supporting his new book Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way. Campbell will be signing copies of his fictional novel (in which he happens to star) starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12, at Page One Books (11018 Montgomery NE). You must pre-purchase a copy of Campbell's book at Page One in order to get something signed. For more information, contact Page One at 294-5623.
Following the signing, Campbell will dash over to the Guild Cinema in Nob Hill where he will attend a special 10 p.m. screening of his newest effort, the slapstick horror film Man With the Screaming Brain (which Campbell wrote, directed and stars in). Campbell will introduce the film and will participate in a Q&A session. Tickets for this special event are on sale now at the Guild (3405 Central NE) and Burning Paradise Video (800 Central SW). Tickets are $10 and are extremely limited! I guarantee this will sell out very soon.
If you are unable to make the late night show on Tuesday, the Alibi will be sponsoring a regular Midnight Movie Madness screening of the film at 10 p.m. and midnight on Friday and Saturday, July 8 and 9. Bruce won't be there those nights, but tickets are a mere $7, and you'll get the bonus of seeing the film before Bruce's appearance at Page One. Assorted items of “Bruce” memorabilia, including the new Dark Horse Comics adaptation of Man With the Screaming Brain, will be on sale at the theater. For more information, contact the Guild at 255-1848.
