Classic movies coming to Silverthorne Theatre for Halloween

LEWISTON, Idaho – The Lewis-Clark State College Silverthorne Artist's Series will present a pair of classic Halloween movies next week at the Silverthorne Theatre. "The Thing" will play on Tuesday, Oct. 27, while "An American Werewolf in London" hits the screen on Thursday, Oct. 29.
Both movies start at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door for $5 per person. LCSC students with their Warrior ID card will receive one free ticket apiece at the door. Both movies are rated R.
Set in the winter of 1982, "The Thing" tells the story of how a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror, and becomes one of them. The movie stars John Carpenter and Kurt Russell.
In "An American Werewolf in London," college students David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) happen upon a quaint pub in London while on vacation. The pub's patrons warn them not to leave the road when walking after dark. Ignoring the advice, the two decide to find a shortcut and this results in David waking up in the hospital with a bite wound on his shoulder. Jack arrives soon after to deliver the grim news that David will become a werewolf when the moon is full. This very original film manages to both scare and amuse.
