Classic horror flick

The Vogue Theatre will celebrate Halloween by showing the 1978 traditional horror flick ‘Halloween’ at 9 p.m. on October 31.

The movie directed by John Carpenter is about classic scary movie character Michael Myers, a psychotic murderer. Director Rob Zombie remade the movie in 2007, however the original version remains a favourite.

Movie watchers who get into the sprit and come out in costume will receive a special price of $6.50. Regular admission is $10, $8 for seniors, and $6.50 for children 12 and under. The movie is rated 18A, and anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Vogue Theatre will be planning more special events like this in the future, especially if the turnout is good on Halloween. A possible event in late November is ‘Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups’, which was filmed right here in Fernie. The screening would allow locals who were extras in the film to see themselves on the big screen.

Screenings outside the regular recent releases have become more feasible following The Vogue’s recent upgrade to digital projectors, allowing movies on blue ray and DVD’s to be shown. The new system also allows video games to be played on the big screen. Anyone wishing to rent the theatre for a private movie or video games can contact the Vogue at 250-423-3132 for more information.
