As a prelude to the upcoming Screams & Screens movie series, Auburn Public Theater is thrilled to present The Satanic Rites of Dracula on Halloween Eve at 7:00 pm Tuesday, October 30th, 2018 in the cinema.

The Satanic Rites of Dracula was the last film of the British Studio Hammer of the long-running vampire series starring Christopher Lee as Dracula.  In this ultimate installment, Peter Cushing returned as the Lord of the Undead’s nemesis, Van Helsing.   The setting had moved from Transylvania to London in the swinging 70s.  The film, a mixture of horror, spy thriller, and science fiction, was a fitting end to Hammer’s bloodsucking series.

Auburn Public Theater’s Screams & Screens will debut in early 2019 and showcase, on the big screen, the best (and worst) B-movie horror films of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Hosted by pop-culture expert Ed Catto, the new series is designed to thrill and delight movie fans with both well-known and obscure movies, complete with cinematic history and insights.

“I’m thrilled to be hosting Screams & Screens and can’t wait to start up the projector in January,” said Ed Catto.

“In the meantime, this Halloween sneak peek is so very fitting.  As a young boy growing up in Auburn, my best friend Paul Willis and I would stay up late and scare ourselves silly watching monster movies The very best ones always starred Christopher Lee as Dracula.”
