YONKERS, N.Y. -- Actor Kevin Bacon will be at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Yonkers for an exclusive screening of his 1990 cult classic, “Tremors,” presented in its original 35mm format, on Thursday at 9 p.m.
Bacon will answer questions about his leading role in the film, during a post-screening session. Introducing the film will be Michael Gingold, managing editor of Fangoria, the leading fan magazine for horror film fans worldwide.
“Tremors,” was released in 1990, three years before "Jurassic Park" changed the way Hollywood considered creature special effects. It is considered one of the last great all-practical monster movies. Although the film was not initially a hit, it soon become a cult favorite for its convincing herd of desert-burrowing "graboids"— giant carnivorous worms —and the gallery of individualistic characters they prey on.
Leading the ensemble are Bacon and Fred Ward as Val and Earl, handymen slackers, forced to press themselves into heroic service to protect their fellow residents of the tiny town of Perfection.
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is at 2548 Central Park Ave.. For more information, visit www.drafthouse.com/yonkers .
