'A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors'


'A Nightmare on Elm Street' Double Feature

Sept. 2
7 p.m.

Freddy Krueger has been messing with minds for over three decades now. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the third installment of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, Psychotronic Film Society is teaming up with the Parkway for a double feature loaded with special treats. The evening will start out with the original recipe, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Here Robert Englund stars as a dead child murderer who now haunts the dreams of teens in town. (There’s also a pretty weird scene where a pre-fame Johnny Depp is consumed by a bed.) That classic flick will be followed by A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, in which Englund continues to camp it up, this time taunting psych-ward kids with sleeping issues. The film also stars Patricia Arquette and features an appearance from a young Laurence Fishburne. During the party at the Parkway, a Freddy Krueger impersonator will be on hand to throw dirty and ominous quips your way, and old Nightmare trailers, toy commercials, and music videos will screen as well. 16+.
