Cinema Detroit started the whole Curbed O'Ween series, and they get a second mention as the only place in the city where you'll get nearly a full day of pure, unadulterated horror kitsch for free. Scary Cinema, an 18-hour movie marathon of classic horror, starts on Friday, Oct 30 at 8:15 am. Early, we realize, but if you're the kind of person that makes Halloween a secular celebration and really does it up, 18 hours of classic horror (broadcast by Turner Classic Movies and screened at Cinema Detroit) will be right your alley.
The fun begins with The Mummy (1959), concludes in the wee hours of Halloween proper with The Leopard Man (1943). While the theater isn't charging admissions, they'll be selling their usual great concessions—Michigan-produced popcorn, Faygo sodas in glass bottles—and accepting donations for the theater's projection fund to cover the cost of the new state-of-the-art equipment Cinema Detroit needs to remain our "indy in the city." The theater moved into new digs early this month at 4126 Third Street, between Willis and Alexandrine, and have high hopes for their bold new space.
