Evil Omens: An EXORCIST Double Feature
On Sunday, Oct. 2, join Black Lodge as we kick off our October horror screenings with a killer double feature. Start the night with the extended director’s cut of the original terrifying 1973 classic THE EXORCIST, from award-winning director William Friedkin and writer William Peter Blatty.
Then stick around for the THE EXORCIST 3, the incredible follow up to the original, written and directed by original creator William Peter Blatty and starring George C. Scott.
Looking to dive into the Exorcist saga even more? BOOKHOUSE BOOK CLUB will be hosting a book club discussion of the original EXORCIST novel before the movie. Come out and discuss the dark themes and ideas of this landmark work. Pick up your copy of the book at Burke’s Book Store (936 S. Cooper) and get 20% off. Book club will be meeting at 5:00.
Free to all
Full bar and food available
First movie at 6:30
Second movie at 8:30
And for those curious why we’re not screening THE EXORCIST 2: it’s because it’s terrible. A critical and commercial failure when originally released, and hated by original writer Blatty, fans of the series avoid it at all costs. And since the third film picks up right after the first one, it just makes sense to omit it.
