The Newman Center Film Series is going on indefinite tour! Inactive since March 7, its inaugural reboot will be at City Well (home of Chapter One Coffee), 30 City Hall Place in downtown Plattsburgh, on Halloween night, October 31st.

Series emcee Andy MacDougall will host a diabolical double-feature from the Hammer House of Horror, starting with “Dracula Has Risen from the Grave” followed by its sequel, “Taste the Blood of Dracula,” both starring the greatest Dracula actor ever, Christopher Lee.

Andy’s usual sidekicks for spooky showings and his (literal) skeleton crew, Morticia and Mortimer, will help greet prospective victims, er, attendees and co-introduce the screenings (the first of which will be good ol’-fashioned reel-to-reel celluloid projection. The second will be digital projection). Open to all free of charge, with donations welcome.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this event can accommodate a maximum of 25 guests at any given time. In other words, first come, first served! (apologies in advance for any inconvenience). Showtime 7:15 pm. If we’ve already drawn a capacity crowd for the first half of the program by the time you arrive, check in with us for the second half, set to begin at 9:15 pm….you never know! Oh, and free refreshments available throughout the event.
