Scary Good Fun at the Seventh Annual B-Movie Celebration This Weekend

October 24, 2013

Celebrate film near Chicago Real EstateIf you are looking for something completely horrifying to do this weekend that’s near your own bit of Chicago real estate, you don’t have to go far – for the first time in the Chicagoland area, the Hollywood Boulevard Cinema in Woodridge is hosting the B Movie Celebration. This is the seventh annual event of its kind, and celebrates B Movies in all of their low budget glory, from October 25th through the 27th.

The B Movie Celebration will include screenings of over 68 B Movies (including Raptor Ranch, After Midnight, Gila and more), many of which are in the horror genre and are perfect for the Halloween holiday that is right around the corner, as well as with many other genres. The low-budget selections, which used to be commonplace as the first half of movie theatres’ double features, are where a number of well-known directors got their start. B movies enjoy a freer form of artistic expression and less regulation and control, as they often avoid the studio process, which can allow for strong social commentary as well as more zany and gory approaches to subject manner. From “so bad it’s good” to camp classics, B Movies can have passionate followings, and the Celebration is a great chance for Chicago residents to explore the indie side of film.

The Celebration will also have appearances by B movie personalities, have its own awards celebration, seminars, workshops and more, all in an informal atmosphere much like the films being celebrated. The Celebration all takes place at the Hollywood Boulevard Cinema at 1001 W 75th Street in Woodridge, a unique movie theater with full food and drink capabilities. You can order tickets for the event online now, either by film or for the weekend, or stop by the box office.
