I am very excited to say that last month’s debut at Carbon Arc Bar was enough of a success that I’ll be hosting screenings there twice a month over there for Horror Society! Attached to the beautiful and historic Davis Theater, Carbon Arc is a bar made for cinema lovers. Featuring inspired cocktails and delicious food, Carbon Arc makes for a perfect night out for dinner and a movie. Date night! Carbon Arc is located at 4614 N Lincoln, Chicago, Illinois 60625.
What we be do there each month is either showing a film connected to a wide release the week of its screening (which sometimes you’ll be able to see at The Davis) or shining a light on an amazing indie. After the film you’ll be treated to a trailer reel of similarly related films. Following that, we’ll have an open informal discussion about each week’s topic. It’s a great way to meet like-minded folks in the horror community!
This Sunday, June 4th, we will be screening The Mummy’s Hand. We will be watching a whole legacy of Mummy trailers before talking about our favorite film in the subgenre. I’ll be geeking out about the new Tom Cruise Mummy and its following Dark Universe of upcoming Universal Monster movies. The event will begin at 8:30pm.
Entry is free so come hungry, thirsty and ready for some classic horror. It’s $1 wing night Sunday, and let me tell you, they’re amazing. We’ll be giving away a good chunk of FREE stuff from both the Davis/Carbon Arc and us. Bring as many friends as you can. Let’s show Lincoln Square and Carbon Arc how horror fans party! Keep up and RSVP with the event here or here.
