We show one of our favourite Cult Classic Flicks every first Saturday of the month*. On Saturday, May 4th, we'll screen Nightmare Castle (1965) with scream queen Barbara Steele. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the movie starts at 8 p.m. This Italian Horror Film borders on the unreal, and the horrific organ music by Ennio Morricone is spine-chilling. Also, Barbara Steele's hypnotic eyes are not easy to forget.
