Here’s more on the event, read up and then jump over and grab your tickets now; this is sure to sell-out.
The skinny on the event:
Filmmaker Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Howling) is coming to the Music Box this Friday, August 10th for a special double feature, co-presented by The New Cult Canon! At 9:30pm, Mr. Dante will present a screening of The Hole, his still-undistributed 2009 horror film. The film marks Dante’s confident return to a genre he invested with great B-movie scares and wit in The Howling, Piranha, and Gremlins.
Then, at midnight, Mr. Dante will introduce his brilliant 1990 sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch, shown here in a pristine 35mm print from his own personal library. With his follow up to the highly successful Gremlins, Joe Dante got the keys to the kingdom for Gremlins 2 and delivered one of the most gloriously anarchic films in recent studio history. This movie has everything, including more Gremlins, high tech gadgets, Hulk Hogan and a splashy musical number!
Dante will also participate in a Q&A between screenings, hosted by The A.V. Club’s Scott Tobias.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
