Beyond Fest makes it return to Los Angeles this month, running September 25th to October 4th at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. And while we’re waiting on the full programming reveal – which is coming soon (and I’ll tell you, it’s amazing from what I’m hearing) – I’m going to share a morsel with you right now.
Pencil this date in on your calendar: Wednesday October 1st. That is when Beyond Fest hosts a special Dean Cundey-approved restored print of Halloween on the big screen. But there’s more: Both director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis are going to be attending for a special Q&A!
The fact the two of them are coming together for this event is incredible. And I can’t remember how long it has been since I personally saw Curtis take the stage for a Halloween screening (over 10 years at least).
This fall is a big deal for the Halloween franchise. Anchor Bay and Scream Factory have come together to bring fans a massive Halloween Blu-ray collection that features all of the films with tons of bonus features. That streets on September 23rd (so soon!).
Okay, so you got that, Los Angeles readers? Halloween. October 1st. JC and JLC in the house.
Beyond Fest is going to be nuts…
