For one night only, Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick Street) will offer the documentary “SCREAM, QUEEN! MY NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.” The show will be held on Friday, March 13 at 9:45 PM.
This movie examines the once-infamous homoerotic subtext and the special place which 1985’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street 2” holds in the popular film franchise. Partly thanks to evolving social mores, “Nightmare on Elm Street 2,” which was considered controversial at the time of its release, is now being looked back upon with a new appreciation and fondness by horror aficionados and fans of the series.
ROGEREBERT.COM writes that the documentary is “Entertaining, informative, and shockingly tender.” FILM INQUIRY states that it is “the kind of documentary you wait all year to see.”
SCREAM, QUEEN runs 99 minutes and is not rated. Admission is $8.00 for adults; $7.00 for students and military; and $6.00 for Capitol Friends. Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Box Office.
