Current Movie: Army of Darkness – Oct. 26 – 8PM
About This MovieMore
It’s true! Army of Darkness is coming to the Egyptian on October 26, 2019 at 8PM!
If you know Ash, read no further. Heck, you probably already have your tickets and are spamming all your friends, and I’m just talking to myself here. You know how to shop smart. Shop S-Mart.
If you aren’t aware of Ash, hang on! Bruce “The Chin” Campbell stars as the reluctant (yet surprisingly effective) Ash, who’s been sucked back in time a few hundred years to find and vanquish the evil powers of the Necronomicon. Part Game of Thrones, part Walking Dead, part Three Stooges, Army of Darkness is a masterpiece of self-deprecating horror. It’s about 1/10th as scary as it is funny. One-liners accompany the triumphs of our clumsy hero (who is only a hero to the medieval rubes around him). It’s a cult favorite you’ll be glad to add to your repertoire.
Dress up as your favorite character for a chance to win prizes. And bring a carved jack-o-lantern for a treat; we’ll put it on stage during the show!
We’ll have beer & wine service, and the show is open to all ages!
Here’s the skinny:
In this sequel to the Evil Dead films, a discount-store employee (“Name’s Ash. Housewares.”) is time-warped to a medieval castle beset by monstrous forces. Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed as the prophecised savior who can quest for the Necronomicon, a book which can dispel the evil. Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome, and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own Deadite counterpart. What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash’s 20th Century tactics and the minions of darkness. –from IMDB
