This is it folks. Your last chance to have loads of fun at the drive-in in Hollywood, at least for now. The joint Hollywood MobMov and Steve Allen Theater Masters of Horror series concludes tonight with an awesome double feature. Suspiria is a well-loved 1977 Italian film by Dario Argento, considered a classic in the horror genre. We’ll also be showing Brian De Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise, a delightful 1974 “horror-thriller-comedy musical” starring Paul Williams. Actress Jessica Harper stars in both films and will be making a live appearance for a Q&A during the intermission at the event tonight. Sounds like a blast to me!
Remember, this is an actual drive-in. You line up your cars in the lot, tune your radio into a specified station for sound, kick back and enjoy watching the picture on a big white wall. Don’t even think about letting the June Gloom clouds scare you away. First of all, they aren’t slated to produce anything and the films are always simultaneously shown inside the warm, dry theater (just in case!).
The Steve Allen Theater is located at 4773 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027. The theater is two blocks west of Vermont Ave. at the Center For Inquiry-West. Parking lot entrance is located on N. Berendo.
The show will start at 8:30pm, or when it’s dark enough to project. Tickets are $8 per person or $30 to reserve a prime parking spot for the drive-in with as many passengers as your car holds.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am closely involved with Hollywood MobMov and assist with the events.
