About the event

SEB Presents
Come and enjoy this infamous cult classic film. But there is so much more than just the movie! Show up early for a free The Thing T-shirt and some movie trivia!

When The Thing hit theaters in 1982, it was not well received by critics and audiences. It was considered a commercial failure. Flash forward 40 years and it is now considered one of the greatest horror films ever made. Come to our screening and make up your own mind, or just check out Kurt Russell’s sweet beard!

In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists are disturbed at their base camp by a helicopter shooting at a sled dog. When they take in the dog, it brutally attacks both human beings and canines in the camp, and they discover that the beast can assume the shape of its victims. A resourceful helicopter pilot (Kurt Russell) and the camp doctor (Richard Dysart) lead the camp crew in a desperate, gory battle against the vicious creature before it picks them all off, one by one.

Rated: R
