“If you’re in the LA area, thanks to the great people at Screamfest, we hope you’ll come by and take advantage of this rare opportunity to catch The Hitcher on the big screen and buckle up for a road horror action film as scary as they come,” the film’s writer Eric Red told Dread Central. “We’ll be there to talk about the making of the picture so pull over and stop by, even if your mother told you never to do this.“
Taking place this coming Wednesday, April 21, at 8pm in Los Angeles at the Downtown Independent Theatre (251 South Main Street, L.A., CA 90012), this rare screening of 1986’s The Hitcher (which stars C. Thomas Howell as a desert traveler marauded by the crazed Rutger Hauer in the titular role) will be followed by a Q&A with the flick’s writer Eric (Near Dark, 100 Feet) Red and director Robert Harmon. Post Q&A, screening-goers are encouraged to mingle with the filmmakers for cocktails on the rooftop deck of the theatre (one complimentary drink with admission).
Lot and garage parking is available near the theatre at 233 South Main Street, and the Downtown Independent (convenient to the 110, 10, and 101 Freeways) is located smack dab between the Pershing Square and Civic Metro Rail stops, which makes getting there an easy task for Los Angeles folks who favor the subway system. Purchase tickets (they’re only ten bucks apiece) here, and for more information on the screening visit Screamfest LA’s event page.
