Time for my monthly plug of FREE movies at Carolina Cinemas.

8/8 The Innkeepers (2011, Ti West)

8/15 Nothing listed yet

8/22 Crimes at the Dark House (1940, George King) – Tod Slaughter

8/29 Double Feature – Voodoo Man (1944, William Beaudine) – Bela Lugosi, John Carradine AND Return of the Ape Man (1944, Phil Rosen) – Both with Bela Lugosi, John Carradine and George Zucco.

Once a month, Ken gets a new digital print to show on one of the big screens downstairs. These shows are NOT free – they cost $7 ($5 for Asheville Film Society) and are quite worth it.

This month’s film is the classic 1974 private eye thriller, Chinatown, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway.

Also once a month, ActionFest puts on a movie. This month, the ActionFest feature is on Thursday July 18th and it is…I Declare War. I Declare War won Best Picture at last year’s ActionFest and it was in a rough workprint edition. This will be the full theatrical release.

Like previous ActionFest films, there will be a donation of $10 that goes to benefit Homeward Bound and there will be FREE popcorn and drinks.
