The Thing 40th Anniversary at Pálás Cinema

As part of their Silver Scream Halloween season Pálás Cinema presents the 4K restorations of more modern classics, including the 40th anniversary re-release of John Carpenter’s seminal sci-fi horror The Thing.

Synopsis: In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien that has been buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Once unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror, and becomes one of them.

31st Oct- 9.35pm

This Halloween, from October 7th – 31st, there’s a reign of terror taking over Pálás as some of cinema’s most iconic Movie Monsters return to the big screen. The Silver Scream season will feature horror classics from Hollywood’s golden era including DRACULA, THE MUMMY, THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, and more. The Silver Scream season will culminate with a ‘Monster Mash’ party on Saturday October 29th in Pálás bar. Fancy Dress is obviously encouraged.
