One, two, Freddy's coming for you...

Wes Craven's 1984 horror film took the slasher movie and made it something other. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET inspires dread in the way that it plays with the audience's perceptions of illusion and reality, leaving us ever unsure if what we're witnessing is the dream of a frightened teenager or their very real and gruesome death. And Robert Englund's Fred Krueger is a cinematic killer like no other. He's no hockey mask-wearing jock lumbering down the street. Freddy is clever and stylish and ethereal, and once you close your eyes and drift off to sleep, he's all-powerful.

Join us for a 35mm screening of the first film in that most nightmarish of franchises. Join us for the introduction of the boiler room bad guy - and the big screen debut of one mister Johnny Depp! And join us for the ultimate reminder that we are never safe - not in a sleepy suburb, not on a shady residential street, and not even in our dreams. (Meredith Borders)

2015 is shaping up to be a triumphal parade of my own childhood.  Unearthing milestones like my junior-high screening of Road Warrior, my family visit as a tiny kid to Disneyland, the comics I stayed up reading with a flashlight under the covers long after lights out, the first movie I ever saw in a theater: Star Wars.
