A Nightmare on Elm Street will be shown at 7 p.m. with New Nightmare to follow at 9 p.m. There will be a brief educational presentation between screenings.

2014 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the original film, one of American’s most popular and enduring horror stories.

A Nightmare on Elm Street was a hit when it was released in 1984. A series of sequels followed, and the series grew into a cultural phenomenon. Freddy Kruger soon became a recognizable figure in U.S. culture. Ten years after the original movie, creator Wes Craven returned to the Nightmare series with New Nightmare.

This event is free and open to the public.
