Actor and legend of horror pop culture Bruce Campbell will be hosting an Evil Dead screening and Q&A session this July! Campbell will be making an appearance on July 10th and 11th at the Midway Drive-In Theater in Dixon, IL as part of his Drive-In Social Distancing Tour.
This event is shaping up to be a blast for fans of horror and movie-going nostalgia in spite of recent quarantine difficulties taking a chainsaw to entertainment events for the past few months.
Here’s an excerpt from the tour’s press release:
“Bruce Campbell’s legendary Q & A events will become an all-immersive media experience as Bruce’s live performance will be projected simultaneously onto the Midway’s huge 90-foot wide screen. Fans will sit in the comfort and safety of their own cars and see Bruce on the Midway screen larger than life with the stereo sound broadcast to their FM car stereos. The Midway Drive-In’s eight acres of open air space will allow the fans to spread out in their vehicles for maximum social distancing. To further increase safety and peace of mind, the car capacity of the Midway has been reduced by half to 250 cars, and each vehicle will occupy two car spaces to give fans twice the normal amount of space.
On Friday, July 10, Bruce will present his Q & A and introduce a double feature of his cult classics, Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn (1987) and Army of Darkness (1993).
Saturday night, July 11, in addition to his Q & A, Bruce will introduce a 4K restoration of Sam Raimi’s original Horror Classic The Evil Dead.”
There are various VIP packages available (“The Groovy Package” just begs for your money with its name alone!) for Bruce Campbell superfans that include merch and Deadite-themed photo ops, and of course there will be exclusive tour merch for sale, along with plenty of nostalgia.
Tickets went on sale June 12th at the Flashback Weekend website. And unlike the Evil in the woods, these won’t be coming back. Don’t miss out!
