Palm Springs Vinyl Records and Collectibles and Demonic Pinfestation have teamed up to present MOVIE MACABRE, a once a month FREE movie night showcasing horror and cult classic pictures in vintage 16mm film format on the Outdoor Patio @ Tippers Gourmet Marketplace located at 276 N. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs The film presentation featuring William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist” is on Wednesday, March 29th, 2017 at 7:30pm. All Ages are Welcome!
For nearly a decade feature movies were presented on 16mm film and only in the last ten years has the movie industry converted to digital presentations, with only a handful of theaters still utilizing film. Like the vinyl record, rare film has a purity and quality to it that is quite pleasing and it is a visual treat to see a Technicolor print, CinemaScope print, or an original black and white classic in its original format.
“We have a pretty significant archive of original film prints, rare features, shorts, and trailers,” says David Bernal, owner of Palm Springs Vinyl Records and Collectibles. “Each film presentation features a classic short or trailer with the feature film usually running on two or three reels.” In addition to the monthly vintage film presentation Demonic Pinfestation will display and sell their enamel lapel pins at their Pop-Up Shop.
Film Synopsis – One of the most profitable horror movies ever made, this tale of an exorcism is based loosely on actual events. When young Regan (Linda Blair) starts acting odd — levitating, speaking in tongues — her worried mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks medical help, only to hit a dead end. A local priest (Jason Miller), however, thinks the girl may be seized by the devil. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert (Max von Sydow) to help with the difficult job. Run Time: 133 minutes
