Event Details

Palace Central presents 666 FRIDAYS, curated by Static Vision, where you’ll find the most devious, deranged and demonic horror and genre flicks this side of Transylvania, from May 17th – July 26th in our 66-seat theatrette of terror, Cinema 6(66). This time around, we’re bringing seven terrifying classics back to the big screen, in celebration of their 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th and 40th anniversaries, every other Friday at 8.30pm.

Drag Me To Hell | 10th Anniversary Screening
Back on the big screen after 10 years, Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell is sure to have you laughing hysterically and screaming in the aisles in equal measure. Playing out like a live-action Looney Tunes animation, with a bucket-load of extra gore, Drag Me To Hell finds Christine – a young banker with a cushy job, intent on climbing the corporate ladder – cursed by Romanian Gypsy Mrs. Ganush after she denies her an extension on her home loan. While those around her are unconvinced, Christine is terrorised by the spectre of the old lady, as she attempts to save her own soul from being dragged straight to hell. A tribute to the films which made him famous – the Evil Dead trilogy – filled to the brim with gross-out gags and hilarious practical effects, Drag Me To Hell is a return to Sam Raimi’s roots (after the highly successful Spider-Man trilogy), an excellent satire for the Global Financial Crisis age and a hell of a good time.
