Popcorn Frights: Wicked Weekend Celebrates John Carpenter

WICKED-WEEKENDPopcorn Frights is proud to announce its inaugural Wicked Weekend event celebrating the Master of Horror John Carpenter. From October 4-7, 2018, four of John Carpenter’s iconic genre films will be presented featuring special immersive theater performances and surprise giveaways.

Popcorn Frights Wicked Weekend will open with a newly restored 40th-anniversary presentation of Halloween on Thursday, October 4, and continue for the next three nights with special presentations of Christine for its 35th-anniversary, a new restoration of The Thing, and They Live for its 30th-anniversary.

All screenings will take place exclusively at the historic Savor Cinema theater, a South Florida landmark that in the 1940s was a Methodist Church.

Wicked Weekend is a new annual event hosted by Popcorn Frights shining a spotlight on a legendary genre figure. This year marks the perfect occasion to honor John Carpenter, not only as he recently celebrated a 70th birthday, but because of the worldwide excitement surrounding the release of the new Halloween sequel which he is producing and composing new original music for.

Obey. Consume. Carpenter.
