If you’re in Los Angeles (or are able to drop everything and fly there) and a fan of John Carpenter, chances are your favorite film from the Master is going to be showing at the Santa Monica Aero this weekend. Starting on Friday, June 13th, Carpenter himself will be in attendance for Q&A in between a double feature of The Fog and The Thing. Then on Saturday, both Escape from New York and Escape From LA will be shown back to back, again with Carpenter in attendance for Q&A (bonus for Bloody readers – this one will be moderated by our own BC!). On Sunday, the director won’t be around, but that’s no excuse not to go – as they will be showing Halloween (his best film, IMO) and Christine. Finally, on Wednesday the 18th, actor Austin Stoker will be on hand for a screening of Assault on Precinct 13 (in which he stars) and Big Trouble In Little China (which he doesn’t). It’s a fantastic lineup with pretty much all of Carpenter’s best work, not to mention a pair of appearances by the man himself (an increasingly rare occasion). Tickets are still available for all 4 nights (one $10 ticket is good for both films) via Fandango. See you there!
