Phantasm Remastered Screening Nationally in September!
Details are still coming in about this one, but it's pretty much confirmed. Phantasm Remastered will be screening nationally in the United States on the night of September 24, 2016 as part of Art House Theater Day. I originally thought this evening showing was limited to the Pennsylvania theater mentioned in my previous blog post, but that no longer appears to be the case. The film is also now confirmed to show in Cleveland that same evening.
Things we know for sure:
- Although only two theaters are currently known to be screening Phantasm Remastered that night, more than 160 theaters are participating in the Art House Theater Day event. That means we can reasonably look forward to significantly more, if not all, participating venues to soon announce their screenings. You can find a list of participating theaters on their website.
- The Pennsylvania screening page mentioned a live stream following the film by Don Coscarelli. The Cleveland listing expand upon this by revealing that he will be joined on the video-cast by performers from the original Phantasm.
- The Cleveland listing also expands upon the "special merchandise" that will be available in the lobby. Their website states that "Mondo is creating limited-run products for PHANTASM, which will be exclusively available that evening."
This is all exciting! There's still a few details we don't have, but we can look forward to these gaps in intel being filled in when either Don Coscarelli or Art House Theater Day make their formal announcement about the event coming up. Thanks enormously to the Pennsylvania and Cleveland venues for tipping us off about these phantasmic happenings!
