As a Denver local and devotee of the Drafthouse, it’s a great pleasure to inform all of you that the Mile High Horror Film Festival and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will be presenting an advance screening of James Wan’s newest thriller, The Conjuring, on Monday, July 8th, at 7 p.m.
Naturally, you’ll likely be competing with hundreds of others, however, as there are only 100 seats available for the screening. Tickets can be reserved at the event page on GoFobo, and each reservation allows the option of getting a second ticket for a friend.
The Mile High Horror Film Festival is a great fest (I’ve gone every year since its inception) and is held every October in beautiful Denver, CO. This year it will celebrate its new home at the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton, located at 7301 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, CO, 80120.
Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, and Lily Taylor, The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
“The Mile High Horror Film Festival’s mission is to showcase the best independent genre films from around the world. The festival hosts screenings and events throughout the year with its annual weekend-long festival taking place each fall in the Denver metro area of Colorado. It features a wide array of celebrities, artists, and filmmakers from the horror genre. Its 2012 guests included Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, and Corey Feldman to commemorate the 25th anniversary of The Lost Boys, among others. “

Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story described in the book House of Darkness, House of Light: The True Story by Andrea Perron, The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of how world renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
From New Line Cinema comes a feature film drawn from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Conjuring stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (“Bates Motel,” Orphan) and Patrick Wilson (Hard Candy, Insidious) as the Warrens and Ron Livingston (HBO’s “Band of Brothers”) and Lili Taylor (Public Enemies) as Roger and Carolyn Perron, residents of the house.
