Story & Screenplay by Ray Bradbury; Directed by Jack Clayton
Containing: Jason Robards, Jonathan Pryce, Diane Ladd & Pam Grier
During a short period when Disney was not king of the hill, quite a few films creeped their way through the overly watered down family-oriented censors. And with Ray Bradbury adapting one of his own stories about The Devil himself (played quite brilliantly by Jonathan Pryce) you've got yourself a film that DIsney withheld for a full year (rediting & reshooting) due to being too scary. Come on out on Halloween afternoon for a film that kids and adults of 2010 will be truly hypnotized by. Preceded by trailers from other 1970s "Disney" film trailers. 35mm print courtesy of DIsney. 95min.

With: Eddie Albert, Ray Milland, Donald Pleasance, Kim Richards, Ike Eisenmann
With the recent remake, you may have heard of this film. But this mid-70s Disney classic will catch you way off guard with it's eerie exploration of two orphans protecting themselves from an old rich guy. But why are the kids orphans? Where is their true home? Utilizing "After School Special" allegories these older Disney films now seem like a precursor to what mature Pixar films achieve nowadays. Bring the kids, bring Mom, heck bring Grandma & Grandpa to an afternoon of Creepy Disney Films! Happy Halloween! RARE 35mm screening! 97min. Preceded by trailers of other misunderstood Kids films.
