CHILL Classic Movie
Friday, Oct. 5, 6 pm
We're taking a journey back in time with classic favorite flicks, and hidden gems you may have missed. Acquaint yourself with the glamour of old Hollywood and learn a little trivia along the way. We'll provide the popcorn, soda, and fun facts. Enjoy the show.

Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi

The dashing, mysterious Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi), after hypnotizing a British soldier, Renfield (Dwight Frye), into his mindless slave, travels to London and takes up residence in an old castle. Soon Dracula begins to wreak havoc, sucking the blood of young women and turning them into vampires. When he sets his sights on Mina (Helen Chandler), the daughter of a prominent doctor, vampire-hunter Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) is enlisted to put a stop to the count's never-ending bloodlust.
Doors open at 5:45. Trivia starts at 6pm. Films begins at 6:15.
Open to everyone ages 15 to 101! No registration required.
