If laser blasters and giant bugs aren’t your thing, join the Hollywood Theater on August 11th for Summer of Lovecraft, a day celebrating one of America’s most beloved fantasy horror authors.

The theater will screen Call of Cthulhu, a 2005 adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft‘s most iconic work. In this silent movie-style film, a dying professor’s strange bequest leads his nephew on a globe-spanning investigation to unravel a twisted knot of fear, madness, nameless cults and horrors best left unknown.

Also showing is The Whisperer in Darkness, a lush black-and-white retelling of the author’s classic tale of suspense and alien horrors.

Summer of Lovecraft begins at 2 p.m. The event will also feature vendors selling Lovecraft-themed goods, and a silent auction of Lovecraftian art and hand-crafted items. In addition, Lovecraft scholar Sean Elliott Martin will give a short presentation and sign copies of his books, including H.P. Lovecraft and the Modernist Grotesque. Tickets are $15 are are available for purchase at Showclix.
