A landmark in modern horror - and one of the most phenomenally successful
independent films ever made - John Carpenter's original HALLOWEEN set the
standard for dozens of over-sexed teens-meet-serial killer movies to come,
including SCREAM and SCARY MOVIE. Newcomer Jamie Lee Curtis (in her first
major role) stars as the resilient Laurie, aware that evil stalks in the
shady streets and living rooms of her small town, in the form of escaped
psychopath Michael Myers. Co-starring Donald Pleasence, P.J. Soles and Nancy
Loomis. All screenings are at the newly renovated Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at
the historic Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Las
Palmas) in Hollywood.
THE PROGRAM IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.
