Dir. Wes Craven (1984, R, 91 min.)

A teenage girl must stop an evil spirit who haunts her dreams in the Halloween Campout Cinema screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

When the kids of Elm Street start getting attacked in their sleep by the spirit of Fred Krueger, it’s up to Nancy Thompson to find a way to stop him. As her friends slowly succumb in increasingly nightmarish ways, Nancy struggles to stay awake while searching for Freddy’s weakness. Can she outwit this terrifying monster before it’s too late?

Join us for a Halloween celebration with this slasher classic once called a “masterpiece in fantasy terror.”


Tickets include admission to Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film.
