Perhaps the defining haunted house film, the pre-Code The Old Dark House finds a group of travelers seeking shelter from the pounding rain in a creepy old mansion inhabited by the Femm family. You know what comes next… Directed by James Whale (Frankenstein) and featuring a stellar cast including Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton, Gloria Stuart (Titanic), and the great Boris Karloff. (71 mins., 4K DCP)

Pere Portabella’s subversive Vampir-Cuadecuc is at once an exploration of the figure of the vampire as well as a devastating critique of Spain’s fascist dictator General Franco. The film includes making-of footage from the set of Jesús “Jess” Franco’s 1970 cult film Count Dracula, starring Christopher Lee. (75 mins., DCP)

I think I'm going. I live in Reynoldsburg. 10 miles away. I'm not a member of the Wex. but I probably should be as I go often enough. I do have the DVD of Old Dark House, but I've never seen it on the big screen and I suppose I'm interested in seeing the 4-K restoration.
