Like we announced last week, we’re holding a Friday The 13th mini-marathon on Friday, September 13th at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica. You guys know I’m a huge fan of the franchise, so I’m stoked to be hosting Parts 1-4 all in a row! We’ll be announcing some additional surprises (which may include some guests and Q&A info) shortly, but in the meantime I wanted to give you a bit of an update.
The whole thing starts at 5PM – there will be a little bit of a street scene outside the theater and you’re welcome to come dressed as your favorite franchise character. There will be food trucks, prizes for costumes and trivia. The FIRST FILM will start at 730 PM and we’ll keep going until we’re done. The whole thing is only $13 (you can buy the tickets here)!
Here’s a bit more on the prizes that are being given away. There are CASH PRIZES of $500, $300 and $100. The cash prizes are for the Costume Contest. Come down by 5PM dressed as your favorite F13 character. The three best costumes will win – with the grand prize winner getting $500 and so on.
Don’t have a costume? No problem! We’re giving away 13 BLU-RAY BOXED SETS of “Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection” as well as 13 MEALS from the Food Trucks outside! These prizes are for our Trivia and Scream Contests (these also start at 5PM).
I’m also giving away 10 PAIRS of tickets to the event right now! Just email me at Contest Full: Winners Will Be Notified Soon and list your ranking for all 12 films in the franchise (this includes Freddy VS. Jason). Winners will be picked at random.
The Aero Theater is located at 1328 Montana Ave. Santa Monica, CA 90403. Here’s the official blurb, “Co-presented by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Bloody-Disgusting.com and Street Food Cinema: The Friday The 13th films introduced a one-man killing machine named Jason Voorhees, and just like that masked slasher they’ve proven pretty near immortal with 12 features spanning three decades. Join us as we celebrate the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release of the Blu-ray boxed set “Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection” starting at 5:00 PM with crazed costume, trivia and scream contests for cash prizes and DVDs. Rediscover the seminal horror series (one of film history’s longest) on the big screen with its first four installments beginning at 7:30 PM.“
