"Mark it zero!" A new late night, summer movie series is coming to the Dedham Community Theatre running every Friday throughout the month of August. These movie events kick off this Friday with Peter Jackson's gory, cult-horror classic, Dead Alive at 11:15 p.m. at the theatre on 580 High St.
"[The theatre] had done this program nine years ago and I remember seeing films as a guest," explains Sarah Reynolds the DCT Director and coordinator of the series. "When I came on as general manager last fall it was one of my goals to re-instate this program because I think there is definitely a crowd for this program, maybe bring in some younger people to the theatre."
Reynolds chose the lineup herself with info from staff and theatre goers.
The eight-week series premieres the cult classics listed below every Friday night at 11:15 p.m. Reynolds noted that for adult movie-goers, beer and wine will be served at the showings.
