“They’re not going to start killing critics for giving bad notices are they?”
As a celebration of the output of the latter years of the Stoll Picture Theatre, we present the British Horror classic and comedy shocker Theatre of Blood in a wonderful theatrical setting! Vincent Price heads up a stellar cast as deranged Shakespearian actor Edward Lionheart. Spurned by critics, he takes revenge on them with a savage literary zeal. Lionheart bases his killings on violent scenes from Shakespearean plays.
“Do you still say my Shylock was inadequate?”
Archive Footage will be playing in the Bistro and Coffee Lounge throughout the day. (No tickets required)
