REEL WEIRD WEEKEND 2020
Its time to get into something a little weird again at the drive-in! Only one event each season brings together some truly off-the-wall, wacky and wild thematic double-bills: REEL WEIRD WEEKEND! On July 31st-Aug. 2nd, Exhumed Films and the Mahoning Drive-In will present the third annual assemblage of the absurd and the unconventional. Prepare yourself to witness human beings melt before your eyes, alien invasions of the strangest kind, and two of the most uncanny cinematic flimflams you will never unsee!
All films will be shown in 35mm.
