DOUBLE FEATURE: Firestarter & Near Dark


Jul 27, 2019
07:00 PM until 10:30 PM


Adapted from the Stephen King novel, Mark Lester’s Firestarter stars Drew Barrymore as “Charlie,” a young girl who develops pyrokinesis, the psychic ability to start fires with the mind. When a shady government agency known as “The Shop” abducts Charlie and tries to use her as a weapon, she flees to save herself and expose the nefarious plot. Followed by the stylish horror-western Near Dark, Kathryn Bigelow’s second feature film as director. A roving group of vampires wreak havoc on an unsuspecting family in a genre film mashup that has become one of the most enduring vampire films of the 1980s. With its oblique commentary on race and gender in America, Near Dark is a powerful exploration of the darker impulses of human behavior.
