Beginning in the '30s, aging magicians used to rent out movie theaters and put on late night “Spook Shows.” These frighteningly cheesy extravaganzas consisted of a feature film (usually a cheap old horror flick) and a series of live stage acts. By the '60s, the practice had pretty much died out. This Halloween, Alibi
Midnight Movie Madness will resurrect this long-dead art form with the Spook-tacular Halloween Spook Show (with Spooks!). The Spook Show will take place at the Guild Cinema in Nob Hill on Friday, Oct. 29, and Saturday, Oct. 30, at the stroke of midnight. Our feature film will be William Castle's 1959 monster masterpiece The Tingler
starring horror icon Vincent Price. The film will be presented in its original theatrical gimmick “Percepto.” In addition to the feature, we'll be presenting the creepy comedy short “Dr. Bone's House of Hairy Horrors,” which will be shown in the high-tech wonder of “4-D” (no glasses required). There will also be a live séance calling up the ghosts of the Guild Cinema, prize giveaways and loads more spook-filled surprises. The entire horrifying evening will be hosted by our groovy gravedigger, Luther. Tickets are $7 at the door. Seating is limited, so get there early!
