Last fall, the first Steel City Secret Cinema lured curious audiences to the Hollywood Theater with the promise of food, music, prizes, and an unknown movie. The event returns this spring with another mystery title, this time from the era of big hair and even bigger films.
On April 26th, Part Two follows up the reveal of beloved, locally filmed sports comedy Slap Shot with a cult horror classic from the 80’s. In keeping with the theme, guests can view artwork inspired by the film in the theater lobby. Featured local artists include Adam Chizmar, Matt Denton, Jonathan Trueblood, Seth Storck, Gwen AP, Kris Boban, Michael Koehler, and many more.
Before the show, attendees can enjoy food from Whole Foods and Eat ‘n Park, drinks, and entertainment from DJ duo Tracksploitation. In addition to non-alcoholic beverages, the Flat Rock Brewing Company will be on hand to serve Inclined Pale Ales to those 21 and over. Everyone of legal drinking age will receive a drink ticket with admission price. Additional beer is available on a per donation basis. Those attending will also receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a variety of prizes, including original posters for films such as Maximum Overdrive, Henry, The Dark Knight Rises, and Alligator, limited edition vinyl, and two tickets to the fall Horror Realm.
Steel City Secret Cinema – Part Two begins at 7 p.m., with the film starting at 8:30 p.m. The raffles will follow at 10:15 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 for regular admission; $35 for a Poster Pass that includes a limited edition poster by artist Matt Ryan Tobin; $45 for Date Night; or $50 for VIP Date Night. Tickets are available for purchase at Showclix. All proceeds benefit the Hollywood Theater and the Toonseum. Afterwards, a month-long display of the featured artwork will be on view at the Most Wanted Fine Art Gallery.
