Current Movie: Army of Darkness – Oct 29
About This MovieMore
Online ticket sales close on the day of the show at 2:00PM. After that, tickets can be purchased at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival box office.
You guys. We’re at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival Amphitheater! Can you believe it?!
It’s going to be so fun to watch great movies outside in the autumn air. Great, and cold. It’s going to be cold. Not “chilly.” Cold.
So bundle up! Break out the ski gear a little early and layer it on. Honestly, I’m going to bring a sleeping bag.
Also, we won’t have concessions, so bring your refreshments with you (you know, Shakespeare Festival style).
Chairs are provided in all sections except the hillside. If you’re going to sit on the grass, bring a blanket or a lawn chair (preferably low-rise).
It’s true! Army of Darkness is coming to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival on October 29, 2021 at 7PM!
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!
Remember: bring your own concessions!
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
