Monster Movie Marathon at the Marion Palace
Nov 1 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Marion Palace Theatre staff is pleased to announce a scary (but not too scary) Monster Movie Marathon celebrating the Halloween season. Theatre management will present three classic horror films on the Palace big screen on the following dates.

Poltergeist, produced in 1982 by Steven Spielberg, was tagged as the ‘First Real Ghost Story.’  The film is devoid of blood and graphic violence but the special effects and plot line makes the movie truly frightening. Poltergeist will be shown on Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, October 19 at 2:00 p.m. & 7:30 pm.  The film is rated PG and runs 1 hour, 54 minutes.

Movie-goers will have the chance to see Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho on Friday, October 24 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. For more than fifty years, this classic film has sent chills down the spines of viewers. The 1960 Academy Award nominated film is rated TV-14 and runs 1 hour, 49 minutes.

The Monster Movie Marathon will conclude with the 1984 sci-fi comedy, Ghostbusters.  Show times are Saturday, November 1 and Sunday, November 2 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.  Ghostbusters is rated PG and runs 1 hour, 45 minutes.

Movie tickets at the Marion Palace Theatre are $4/Adults, $3/Seniors (62 & over), $2/Children (12 and under) and all current PCAA members presenting a valid membership card.  Movie tickets may be purchased at the Palace Theatre door, 276 W.
