Spaghetti Sunday: A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS

April 25, 2021

They were tales of dusty streets, with glints and squints as cold as the steel that started and ended many an argument. Their heroes may have had no names, but their Techniscope tales branded themselves in our memories, once upon a time when melee maestros like Leone and Corbucci triggered a whole new style in adventure, weaving tales of anti-heroes, villains, and bloody revenge. They took the building blocks of American westerns, adding Italian style and subversion under the Spanish skies that substituted for the American west, filling the eyes with striking imagery and the ears with unforgettable themes.
The Mahoning Drive-In Theater invites you to kick off your spurs and don your ponchos under the stars for Spaghetti Sundays, where we’ll unspool these quick-draw classics on 35mm, filling the giant Cinemascope screen once again with those vivid vistas and larger-than-life pistoleers.
Be sure to bring the whole posse out for Spaghetti Sundays, to ensure they keep chugging along, like a hijacked train full of gold!

DARKSIDE of DISNEY:
Return To OZ & Watcher in The Woods (on 35mm)

April 30-May 1, 2021

The Mahoning Drive-In Theater is proud to announce our live-action retro Disney debut on April 30-May 1 with “DarkSide Of Disney”, a double feature celebrating the shadowy edges of the Magic Kingdom with two 1980s kindertrauma classics, RETURN TO OZ (1985) and THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS (1980), both presented on Rare 35mm, direct from the Disney vault!
The evening starts with a trip back over the dark side of the rainbow with RETURN TO OZ, starring Fairuza Balk as a disbelieved Dorthy, sent off to an institution to rid her of her “delusions” of Oz, only to be whisked wonderfully back to that enchanted land once more to save the inhabitants from the evil Nome King!
Next up, we journey deep into the fearsome forest to meet THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS, featuring Bette Davis, Lynn-Holly Johnson, and Kyle Richards (sister of ESCAPE and RETURN TO WITCH MOUNTAIN’s Kim Richards, and modern-day reality TV star herself), in a supernatural thriller about sisters who discover an other-worldly entity in the seemingly peaceful preserve behind their house.
While both films were originally rated PG and intended for family viewing, be aware that some smaller children may find aspects of this double feature scary, as did the now-adult children who remember these films to this day for the same reasons! Don’t miss the rare ability to see Disney live-action classics on 35mm on the big screen!

CHRISTMAS IN JULY (The Horror Edition)

Then a frenzied Father Christmas starts crossing people off the Naughty List permanently in CHRISTMAS EVIL (1980), John Waters’ favorite Holiday film and easily the best killer Santa movie starring Fiona Apple’s father.

On Saturday, we present a moving portrait of hereditary insanity, SILENT NIGHT, DEALDY NIGHT PART 2 (1987), a film that forever immortalized taking out the trash, followed by the all-time Christmas creeper, BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974), directed by Bob Clark, who’d go on to make A CHRISTMAS STORY nine years later!

CAGE MATCH:
A Nic Cage Marathon

Aug 20-21, 2021

On August 20-21, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater lets the bunny out of the box with CAGE MATCH: A NIC CAGE MARATHON, two nights of ragin’ Cage double features!

We’ve selected the A’s (not the bees!) of Nicolas Cage’s vast body of work, presenting the light and dark side of one of the most idiosyncratic performers of our time.

Friday night is for lovers, with two films showing off the tender side of Cage, leading off with a classic 80s tale of neon-crossed lovers, with Nic as a punk in love with a VALLEY GIRL, set to a new wave soundtrack. Then we head southwest for The Coen Brothers’ RAISING ARIZONA (1987), in which Cage portrays a dimwitted kidnapper who winds up on the run when a gaggle of goofballs seek to seize sweet baby bounty.

Saturday night’s alright for fighting, with Nic knocking out a dual role (as himself and co-star John Travolta), in John Woo’s mug-swapping action extravaganza FACE/OFF (1997), followed by the bombastic Bruckheimerness of a mulleted Cage charisma in the airborne actioner CON AIR (1997)!

So hop out of bed and onto your broom (or automobile, whichever is faster) and head on out for our Discount Disney Nights presentation of a family classic, not seen theatrically in decades!

For those who may not be in the know: We have been pushing to access the coveted Disney Vaults for over 4 years..

It’s been 6 years since our first GO APE event, now it’s happening again, and you do NOT want to miss it! See all five original PLANET OF THE APES films in 35mm, together for one weekend!

The 1968 film —starring Charlton Heston and written by “Twilight Zone” creator Rod Serling—changed the face of science-fiction forever, and spawned four sequels…as well as a live-action tv series and a Saturday morning cartoon. In 1974, 20th Century Fox released all five motion pictures together as a “quintuple feature” for a limited time in selected theaters. Now, Exhumed Films and the Mahoning Drive-In Theater are proudly recreating the classic “Go Ape” screenings once more with a rare presentation of all five movies, and other surprises, shown over the course of two drive-in nights! These films have everything: Chuck Heston in a loincloth! Nuclear warhead worshipping mutants! Time travel! Chimps wearing ascots! Ricardo Montalban in a turtleneck! Paul Williams, John Huston, and Sheriff Lobo in the same film! And of course, lots of damn, dirty apes! Come out and join us for this rare event!  All humans are welcome!

Friday, August 27th:
PLANET OF THE APES (1968) - A world gone mad!

BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES (1970)- The bizarre world of "Planet of the Apes" was only the beginning...

Saturday, August 28th:
ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES (1971)- Visitors... Or invaders from the Future?  Only baby Milo knows and he isn't talking yet!

CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (1972)- The most awesome spectacle in the annals of science fiction!  The revolt of the Apes!

BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES (1973)- The final chapter in the Apes saga.  The most suspenseful showdown ever filmed as two civilizations battle for the right to inherit what's left of the Earth!

Spaghetti Sunday: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY

Aug 29, 2021

SUNDAY, AUGUST 15th: Sergio Leone's THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY (on original 35mm).

They were tales of dusty streets, with glints and squints as cold as the steel that started and ended many an argument. Their heroes may have had no names, but their Techniscope tales branded themselves in our memories, once upon a time when melee maestros like Leone and Corbucci triggered a whole new style in adventure, weaving tales of anti-heroes, villains, and bloody revenge. They took the building blocks of American westerns, adding Italian style and subversion under the Spanish skies that substituted for the American west, filling the eyes with striking imagery and the ears with unforgettable themes.

The Mahoning Drive-In Theater invites you to kick off your spurs and don your ponchos under the stars for Spaghetti Sundays, where we’ll unspool these quick-draw classics on 35mm, filling the giant Cinemascope screen once again with those vivid vistas and larger-than-life pistoleers.

Be sure to bring the whole posse out for Spaghetti Sundays, to ensure they keep chugging along, like a hijacked train full of gold!
