GUNKY’S BASEMENT is an exciting new Maryland Film Festival project: a series of 5 genre films curated and hosted by two Baltimoreans, musician DAN DEACON and artist/filmmaker JIMMY JOE ROCHE. While the programming is free-form, the emphasis will be on Dan and Jimmy’s favorite sci-fi, horror, and action films of the late 70s through the early 90s. Dan and Jimmy will introduce all the films, which will screen from 35mm prints on the largest screen at the Charles Theatre, with informal conversations following the film. Each screening will also have an original screenprinted poster created by a Baltimore-based artist.
The first film in Gunky’s Basement has just been announced, and will take place at the Charles on Thursday October 21st at 9pm: John Carpenter’s THE THING. THE THING is a startling combination of science-fiction and horror from one of the true masters of both genres; seeing it on the big screen is the perfect way to see in the Halloween season!
We’ll be announcing ticket sales for THE THING soon, as well as the dates and titles for the next two Gunky’s Basement screenings; stay tuned!
