Dr. Terror's House of Horrors; '60s English Horror Renaissance; PrivateTheater

Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (98 min.): An immensely entertaining and atmospheric film-nightmare, the moviestars the titans of British horror movies, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, along with a youngish Donald Sutherland. A highlight of the late 1950s-'60s British horror renaissance. Has that totally involving, highly imaginative quality of this era of English horror movies. Tremendous escapism.

Plot: On a train, Peter Cushing engages five men in a conversation, leading to the fact that he can tell their futures through tarot cards; the film unfolds as the five stories are presented, each showing the unique way that one's life can be ruined as if fate had designed  horrors that would best fit each individual.

Cushing and Lee would go on to be a part of the Star Wars movies. ****See the trailer for "TERRIFYING HORROR":

We are going to meet in new private theater downtown to which Jane has access (seats up to about 15, projector, stadium style seating). Jane's place is on the corner of 6th Ave No. and Church St., Cumberland Apts., 555 Church St., zip code: 37219.

Parking is available across the street in the Main Public Library parking lot on 6th Ave No., a half block down from intersection of 6Th & Church.
Parking also might be available on 5th or 6th but the library is a sure thing!

*****Anyone taking MTA, to come downtown, take #7; it stops at Church & 9th Ave. No. (after Lifeway announcement) or main station about 3 short blocks away; and going home, the #7 stops about 2 blocks up on 6th Ave. No. The #3 also stops at the main station if you are coming downtown; and right across the street on 6th Ave. going back towards West End. *****

Jane will be in the lobby to greet you or you can buzz the concierge. Her cell number is[masked] in case you need directions.

    Hi Jane,
    Bruce and I had a wonderful time today at our first meetup. Everyone was nice and the theatre is a great setting. It was our first time seeing a "Hammer Horror" film and though it was a little campy, the acting was great. Thanks so much for sharing your love and knowledge of movies and your dedication to bringing this experience to others. We'll see you soon!
