Local charity horror movie marathon Horrorama is celebrating its 16th year of bringing spooky sights to the big screen in Dayton, but this year is likely the last year the festival will screen 35mm prints due to the shift to digital projection in movie theaters. They're celebrating 35mm with 5 amazing films (3 on film and two projected digitally) as well as the usual lineup of costume contests, prizes and other fun. Two of the three Horrorama organizers, Matt Brassfield and Rick Martin visited the WYSO studios to talk about this year's lineup of films.
Horrorama is Friday, October 26 at the Englewood Cinema.
September 28th through the 30th, the LGBT Film Festival returns to the Neon Movie Theater in downtown Dayton. In this sneak-peek interview, WYSO Weekend host, Jerry Kenney, talks with Jonathan McNeal, film festival curator, and manager of the Neon, about this year's selections.
This interview will air on WYSO Weekend Sunday, September 23rd.
