Event Report: Don Coscarelli Night at the Strand Theater

Last night was a great night to be in Seymour, Connecticut. That's where The Strand Theater held Don Coscarelli Night, which consisted of a double-feature screening of Bubba Ho-Tep and the original Phantasm. We've got a report from the event and some sweet photos thanks to mega-phan Scott Pensa, who was in attendance.

The night also included some great cult movie trailers, giveaways, and raffles. Additionally, the theater commissioned artist Matt Wilson to create a special limited edition print for the night depicting both films. Printed on metallic paper, the silver edition was limited to forty copies. The night also contained an unannounced treat in that Matt also printed an extremely limited gold variant edition. How limited? Five copies limited. Scott snapped up four of these prints for himself, myself, and fellow mega-phans Peter Marullo and Matt Naylor. The fifth gold variant print went to the artist himself. Could you imagine being the disappointed phan behind Scott in line wanting one of these? Ha!!

The Strand also printed these nifty Phantasm plastic cups for the event, which feature a silver sphere and the Tall Man's iconic line from the original film's finale. Eagle-eyed Scott kept watchful eye to see if anyone left their cup behind or threw it away as they're collectible, but he says people were clinging to them, so damn. Thanks for the report and photos, Scott!
