Prom-Themed 40th Anniversary CARRIE Reunion/Charity Event Heading to LA’s Ace Hotel; October 14th Sees Reunion/Screening
With Scream Factory’s upcoming 40th Anniversary Bluray release of Brian de Palma’s 1976 classic CARRIE on its way, what better way to not only celebrate the release, the legacy and the film that brought so many of us into either discovering or rediscovering the work of Stephen King, than with an all out 40th Anniversary reunion/screening/charity event?
Going down on Friday, October 14, 2016, the event is taking place not only to celebrate the release, but also as an effort to raise critical funds for the weSPARK Cancer Support Center (which sees CARRIE star Nancy Allen as its Executive Director). The Ace Theater will be transformed head to tow with prom-themed decorations, and attendees are encouraged to dress in their best ’70s formal attire (or favorite character from the film for an opportunity to pose for a photo in a special photo booth and win Best Dressed “Carrie” character Costume contest).
Before the after-screening prom event, the Ace Theater will host a special screening, along with a Q&A featuring Piper Laurie (The Hustler), Nancy Allen (Dressed to Kill, Robocop), William Katt (The Greatest American Hero), P.J. Soles (Halloween), Academy Award™-winning editor Paul Hirsch (Star Wars: Episode IV) and Casting Director Harriett B. Helberg (The Jazz Singer). The cast will participate in a live Q&A moderated by Bryan Fuller (NBC’s Hannibal, ABC’s Pushing Daisies and the upcoming series American Gods).
Tickets to the star-studded screening and Q&A will start at $25, with higher ticket tiers to include Scream Factory’s brand new 2-disc Carrie (Collector’s Edition) Blu-ray release with nearly 3 hours of bonus material, a specially commissioned original poster from a local artist, access to a private VIP pre-reception, and opportunities for photos with cast and crew.
