“Don’t expose him to bright light. Don’t ever get him wet. And don’t ever, ever feed him after midnight….”
It isn’t Christmas without Gremlins! And this year, we’re not only giving you two opportunities to experience director Joe Dante and producer Steven Spielberg’s 1984 classic on the big screen, but we’re excited to announce that both screenings with be followed by LIVE Q&A with Billy Peltzer himself, actor Zach Galligan!
In quaint Norman Rockwell-esque town Kingston Falls at Christmastime, inventor (Hoyt Axton) purchases a cute, fuzzy little Mogwai from a Chinatown shopkeeper’s grandson, who dispenses the above-mentioned warning before closing the deal. He brings the creature home to his son Billy (Galligan), a bank clerk who crushes on his co-worker Kate (Phoebe Cates), and who quickly develops a bond with his strange new pet, who he names Gizmo.
But what happens when Gizmo gets wet? And even worse – what happens when you feed a Mogwai after midnight?
Featuring a delicate balance between family-friendly whimsy and nightmarish terror that no one could pull of from Spielberg, Gremlins has become a Holiday movie-viewing tradition for many who spent their childhoods in the 80’s. See it on the big screen at The Frida – and grab a photo with Billy Peltzer himself!
Friday, December 7 – 7:30pm
Saturday, December 8 – 2pm
Live Q&A with Zach “Billy Peltzer” Galligan after each screening!
