VHS SHOW AT NITEHAWK CINEMA IN BROOKLYN, NY Nitehawk Cinema, the beautiful, brand-new three-screen film complex in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY, begins a new series this coming Sunday evening at 10:00 pm. Movies released on VHS will be screened on VHS at the theater in homage to the glory days of the once exorbitantly-priced but now-defunct home video format.
Screening this Sunday evening at the Nitehawk, in association with Wild Eye Releasing, is John Ballard's FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE ORPHAN, a thriller that originally opened on Friday, November 30, 1979 on a double bill with 1975's BLACK MAGIC by Hong Kong's Shaw Brothers.
There will also be special appearances and VHS clips from "Lunchmeat" VHS magazine and The Horror Boobs.
Admission to the event is FREE. Viewers are encouraged to come with their old VHS tapes and trade with one another.
Come early and hang out in the restaurant/bar of the Nitehawk Cinema which is located at 136 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211. Have a look at the Nighthawk's website and menu at http://www.nitehawkcinema.com.
