Opening
Weekend '22

The wait is over!

Announcing the 2022 Mahoning Drive-In Theater season opener, our annual trip back in time with two beloved family classics, THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939) and WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971)!
On April 29-30, we present our traditional opening double feature, a time for friend and family to come together and celebrate classic cinema under the stars with two films so many of us grew up with, from annual TV broadcasts to early home video, filled with pure imagination that took us over the rainbow to magical lands filled with sparkling wonders.
First we join Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion as they dodge the Wicked Witch in search of THE WIZARD OF OZ. Then, after a brief intermission, everyone gets a Golden Ticket to enter the tasty, tantalizing (and occasionally terrifying) world of WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, the most musically munchable movie of all time!
In addition to both films presented in glorious 35mm, we’ll have a live DJ set before the films, themed décor and photo ops, costumed characters, special food items, raffles and one lucky winner each night who’ll find a Golden Ticket in their popcorn, redeemable for fabulous Wonka-worthy prizes!
..And Attention Families.. For this event we will be offering FREE Overnights for children under 13! (must have a general ticket purchase)

The evening kicks off with Julie Andrews in the film that made her a star, Walt Disney’s MARY POPPINS, in which we learn the meaning of “supercalifragilisticexialidocious” (even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious), and thrill to the eternally charming Dick Van Dyke as chimney sweep and Poppins pal Bert, in a tale of a magical nanny who breezes into the lives and hearts of the Banks family.

Once that spoonful of sugar has gone down, Dick Van Dyke returns in the most fantasmagorical entertainment in the history of everything, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG (1968)! Based on a book by James Bond creator Ian Fleming (with a screenplay by WILLY WONKA scribe Roald Dahl), this wonderful whimsical wheelie takes us on a grand tour of musical adventure, wherein the titular car brings fuel-injected fun and vanquishes the creepy Child Catcher, all to the tune of toe-tapping motoring melodies!

VAMPYRTY '22 (*all night Dusk Till Dawn on Sat.) on 35mm

Sharpen your fangs and dust off your capes, it’s time for everyone’s favorite filmic undead undulation, Vampyrty 2022!

This time we partner with Exhumed Films to drive a stake into Saturday night boredom with a 1970s five-film dusk-to-dawn vampathon that that’ll feature more exposed teeth than an Osmond Family dental chart!

Friday kicks off with a 35mm double feature of two African-American oral acupuncturists, BLADE (1998), starring Wesley Snipes as the half-human, half-vampire daywalker with a talent for foiling fellow fangers, followed by the AIP classic BLACULA (1972) starring William Marshall as Prince Mamuwalde, cursed by Dracula to a life of vampirism in the 1700s, released from his coffin in the 1970s.

Saturday’s dusk-to-dawn all-nighter kicks off with the sequel to the ‘72 classic, SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM (1973). African Voodoo stirs Prince Mamuwalde to kill again! Co-staring Pam Greir.

Next up is Werner Herzog’s remake of a silent coffin classic (celebrating its 100th anniversary this year), NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE (1979), starring Klaus Kinski as Count Dracula and Isabelle Adjani as the focus of his affliction.

Now that you’ve got your fangs wet, we thread up CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1973), in which Andrew Prine accidentally unleashes long-buried vampires on an unsuspecting island village. Oops!

We then get into the ghoulish groove with YOUNG DRACULA (aka SON OF DRACULA, 1973), a super-rare rock and roll musical starring Harry Nilsson as the toothy titular Count, who performs seven songs with a backing band that includes Peter Frampton, John Bonham and Keith Moon. Costarring Ringo Starr, this rock comedy-horror film was directed by Hammer and Amicus veteran Freddie Francis, anywho two years earlier helmed our final feature…

If you’ve made it this far, we invite you to wrap up this undead all-nighter with THE VAMPIRE HAPPENING (1971), a funkily fangy freakout in which an actress inherits a Transylvanian castle, unaware that she’s the doppelgänger descent of a vivacious vampire vixen who’s decidedly not deceased, and satiates her sanguinary desires in the nearby seminary!

All films presented on 35mm, stakes and garlic not provided.. but encouraged.

Sunday Essentials: NIGHT OF THE HUNTER '55

On Sunday, June 19th, we present a 35mm screening of, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955)

Sunday Essentials is a series of single-feature 35mm presentations highlighting classics from all genres, with themed trailers and introductions by authors and film scholars, providing context and insight into the films screened.

Charles Laughton only directed one feature film, and boy, was it a doozy.

We're Incredibly proud to present his singular vision, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955), starring Robert Mitchum in an image-shattering portrayal of a con man whose religious zealotry doesn’t extend to every commandment, in his malevolent pursuit of two children who may hold the secret to a hidden $10,000 stash. A black and white suspense classic that delves deeply into the dark heart of greed and fanaticism.

As part of our Essentials commitment to cinema education and exploration, we’ll be joined onscreen for an introduction by Preston Neal Jones, author of HEAVEN & HELL TO PLAY WITH: THE FILMING OF THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, giving insight into the film and its production.

Friday, Aug. 5 - John Waters Double-Bill!

PINK FLAMINGOS (1972)- Hiding undercover as “Babs Johnson, Divine, aka. “The Filthiest Person in the World”, is challenged by a couple who will seemingly go to any length in order to steal her tabloid-awarded title. Arguably the most notorious midnight movie of all time, which was selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2021!

plus

POLYESTER (1981)- Divine stars as Francine Fishpaw, a put upon suburban housewife with a sharp sense of smell who stands by as her unhappy life in Baltimore begins crashing down around her, John Waters-style.

Saturday, Aug. 6 - Under the Influence!

BLUE SUNSHINE (1976)- After a series of bizarre murders, Jerry Zipkin, an innocent man, is accused of the crime and on the run from the authorities until he can unravel the mystery and discover the secret of “Blue Sunshine”.

MONDO ARGENTO!
(A 35mm Dario Argento Marathon)

On Friday and Saturday, September 16 and 17, Exhumed Films and The Mahoning Drive-In Theater present MONDO ARGENTO, a six-film celebration of the dark dreams of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento, on 35mm.

From bugs to brutes, demons to witches, murder and mayhem most macabre will paint the mighty Mahoning screen in candy-colored nightmares, stylish sensations of beauty and barbarism, set to a pulsating prog rock beat by maniacal music masters Goblin, Keith Emerson, Georgio Gaslini, Simon Boswell, and more.  Join us, if you dare, for two nights of disturbingly delightful delves into the depths of darkness, courtesy of the malevolent mind of Dario Argento.

Friday, September 16th begins with CREEPERS (the U.S. edit of PHENOMENA – 1984), starring Jennifer Connelly as an American girl at a Swiss boarding school who has the uncanny ability to communicate with insects.  Throw in a series of brutal murders, Donald Pleasence, Daria Nocolodi and a chimp, music by Iron Maiden and Motorhead, and you’ve got one heck of a case for public school.

Next up is the Argento produced and penned DEMONS (1985), directed by Lamberto Bava, a living nightmare of moviegoers trapped in a theater during a horror film screening, who find the terrors onscreen suddenly surrounding them in their seats, as one by one, their fellow moviegoers are transformed into savage beasts.

The event draws to a close with Argento’s 1975 masterpiece DEEP RED (aka PROFONDO ROSSO), starring David Hemmings as a jazz pianist who witnesses a murder and is sure he subconsciously possesses the key to finding the killer’s identity, while the killer tries to stop him from revealing all. Daria Nicolodi co-stars as the determined reporter out to help solve the case before time runs out for the both of them.

Saturday, September 17th sees the beautifully dark fairy tale of terror light up the screen, as Jessica Harper arrives at an elegant ballet school in Germany just in time for a series of brutal murders, her investigation of which leads her to a shocking discovery about just who is running the show.  Highly stylized, from camera angles to editing to lighting to music, SUSPIRIA is not just a film to be watched, it is a film to be experienced, a traumatic treat for the senses.

We follow with the next chapter in the “Three Mothers” series (of which SUSPIRIA was the first), INFERNO (1980), in which siblings on opposite sides of the world discover the dark secrets that lie beneath and within their apartment buildings and share a sinister connection.  Somehow even MORE candy-colored and dreamlike than its predecessor, INFERNO weaves a darkly magical spell upon the viewer, into a mystical world of deadly deeds done dreamily.

Our final film classes up the proceedings with a trip to the OPERA (1987).  Unfortunately, a young singer is being stalked and tormented by a deranged and mysterious fan, leading to a series of brutal murders and terrifying torments, but hey, culture!

All films presented via original 35mm prints.

Harry & The Hendersons
+ Big Foot

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LEHIGHTON PENNSYLVANIA

Reported sightings of a large, hairy, humanoid creature in and around the area of Seneca Road in Mahoning Township, Pennsylvania in recent weeks have surged.  Seven feet tall and seemingly a loner, this creature bears a strong resemblance, from eyewitness testimony, to the fabled “Bigfoot”, aka “Sasquatch”.  

In an effort to draw out this illusive creature for further study, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater is partnering with the Carbon Chamber and Economic Development Corporation to present a 35mm double feature of HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS (1987) and BIGFOOT (1970), on National Sasquatch Day, Thursday, October 20th.

We begin with a sympathetic Sasquatch portrayal in the 80s family classic HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS (1987), starring John Lithgow and Melinda Dillon as the heads of a household who find themselves hosting a benevolent Bigfoot, and the hairy hilarity that ensues as they try to keep their gargantuan guest a secret.

After that family frolic, we present a classic Drive-In case study in the dangers of trespassing upon Sasquatch sacred lands, BIGFOOT (1970), starring John Carradine, Joi Lansing, Doodles Weaver, Christopher AND John Mitchum, and Haji.  In this cautionary tale, it’s Bigfoot vs bikers when a creeper cryptid kidnaps lovely ladies deep in the woods, and only a bold band of heroic hog-riders can save them!  

A Portion of Proceeds from this event will go to the CCEDC, to aid in their mission of boosting local business and aiding in the fight against Sasquatch slander.
