The Dead Zone

Join us on Saturday, September 3 for an evening dedicated to one of the most prolific authors of horror fiction ever, Stephen King. King’s work has been the basis for countless classic movies, and we’ve selected three of our favourites as part of Stephen King Triple Feature.

Rob Reiner’s beloved coming-of-age tale Stand by Me (River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell, Kiefer Sutherland and John Cusack) is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year and will kick off the night at 6:30 pm. At 8:30 pm, we’re screening David Cronenberg‘s The Dead Zone (Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Tom Skerritt) followed by the always-super-creepy Pet Sematary at 10:45 pm. See one, or see ’em all! Minors OK to all shows.

STAND BY ME (Rob Reiner, 1986 / 89 mins / PG) After the death of a friend, a writer recounts a boyhood journey to find the body of a missing boy. The film’s name comes from the song “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King from 1961. The song was also the theme song. This film was modeled from a novella by Stephen King called “The Body” and was the ninth filmed story from the author. The film tells the story of a group of 10-year-old friends out on their own and the trials and tribulation they are confronted with along the journey.

THE DEAD ZONE (David Cronenberg, 1983 / 103 mins / 18A) Johnny Smith is a schoolteacher with his whole life ahead of him but, after leaving his fiancee’s home one night, is involved in a car crash which leaves him in a coma for 5 years. When he wakes, he discovers he has an ability to see into the past, present and future life of anyone with whom he comes into physical contact.

PET SEMATARY (Mary Lambert, 1989 / 104 mins / 18A) Behind a young family’s home in Maine is a terrible secret that holds the power of life after death. When tragedy strikes, the threat of that power soon becomes undeniable.
