I’m a huge fan of geek movies so was very excited to hear that Asylum studio is weekly late night theatrical movie series with Cinemark Theatres starting September 28th in theaters across the country. The weekly series will be a curated selection of underground and homegrown horror, thriller, sci-fi and cult cinema (tickets: Cinemark.com/asylum). This series will offer attendees a chance to meet filmmakers, the studio and win signed merchandise and other promotions that might have a lucky fan win a walk on role in an Asylum film.
Since this is the studio that has brought you Sharknado they will have a special Sharknado 5: Global Swarming screening on November 16 with the cast and crew appearing. The series will be affordable fun in college markets that will appeal to film fans of all ages. Cinemark is offering $5 general admission tickets or $10 premium ticket (including digital download of the movie). The experience for some attendees won‘t end at the theater!
