The Down in Front! comedy troupe regularly takes on films that are downright frightening by sheer virtue of how bad they are – but, in the spirit of the season, this time, they’re taking on a film that’s intentionally billed as scary.

Laura, a beautiful young woman, is being kept against her will under treatment in a private sanatorium – which her father-in-law owns and operates.

Interested? The film reel rolls at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.
