The Asylum and Cinemark Theatres Launching Weekly Genre Movie Series

“Were bringing back the thrill of drive-ins and Grindhouse cinema with this chance to see unapologetic and completely original films.”

The Asylum, the studio behind the hit Sharknado franchise and Syfy’s “Z Nation,” has just announced a partnership with Cinemark Theatres for a late-night theatrical movie series dedicated to homegrown horror, thriller, sci-fi and cult cinema.

Dubbed “Thursday Nights at The Asylum, the big screen experience launches on September 28, 2017 in 76 Cinemark theaters across the country.

“Targeting students in college markets and film enthusiasts in general, attendees will have the option of a low cost $5 general admission ticket or a $10 Premium Ticket which will include a digital download of the movie. Thursday Nights at The Asylum will also offer attendees a unique glimpse into Hollywood with a chance to meet the filmmakers, the studio and win signed merchandise and other promotions, including a walk on role in an Asylum film.”

The series will showcase the best of The Asylum’s frightening, provocative, and fun feature films every Thursday night. The weekly series will build up to a special live Sharknado event featuring Sharknado 5: Global Swarming on November 16  – with appearances from the cast and crew of the pop-culture juggernaut.
