(KYTX) - This Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. Liberty Hall continues in the Halloween spirit with scary movie month. We will show John Carpenters 1982 remake of The Thing starring Kurt Russell.
Taking place in the Antarctic, the movie focuses specifically on a group of American scientists. The audience is given no introduction to their mission, but are thrust into their existence when a pair of seemingly crazy Norwegians appear at their base camp, chasing an escaped dog.
The Norwegians are killed, and the dog finds its way into the camp, which is when things really start to get crazy.
Also, this Saturday, Oct. 26 starting at 10 p.m. Liberty Hall (in partnership with Jerichos Tours of Tyler) will host the Tyler Rose City Comicon break out event, Jonahs Jokers in D Movie Hades. This will be similar to Master Science Theater 3000 and will be hosted by special guest star Halloween Harvey.
Imagine a double feature movie marathon of the worst films you can find and you get to shout out your own lines at the screen.
The Jonah's Jokers Group is coming in from Dallas to present two films, "Night of the Living Dead" and "Dr. Jekyll and the Werewolf.

Then on Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. the Liberty will show another of John Carpenters masterpieces, the classic 1978 horror film Halloween starring Jamie Lee Curtis.
Halloween set the stage for all of the babysitter slasher films that have come since. Dont drink or do drugs, dont mess around and dont go and investigate a strange noise, because you may not make it back.
Tickets are available online or at the door for $5. Go to www.LibertyTyler.com for more information.
