To celebrate Halloween we are delving into the films that inspired the cultural phenomenon that is ‘Stranger Things’. The magnificent Duffer Brothers haven’t shied away from the cult movies that inspired the hit show and we have selected two from a long list of Duffer favourites – Wes Craven’s ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and John Carpenter’s ‘The Fog’.
The Black Box will host this mini-movie marathon where we will have some “Stranger Things” goings-on to celebrate the season! On arrival roll the dice – roll evens and sit in our “Castle Byers” section where “Will the Wise” will treat you to some delicious inspired 80s treats; but roll an odd number and it’s off to the “Upside Down”! 80s movie tunes will provide the soundtrack and special prizes for anyone brave enough to perform live the #NeverEndingChallenge.
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
In Wes Craven’s classic slasher film, several Midwestern teens fall prey to Freddy Krueger, a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams!

Strange things begin to occur as a tiny California coastal town prepares to commemorate its centenary. Inanimate objects spring eerily to life; Rev. Malone stumbles upon a dark secret; radio announcer Stevie witnesses a mystical fire; and hitchhiker Elizabeth discovers a mutilated corpse!
