Want to see a movie but don’t feel like spending money?

Watch one on us.

Our Know Poe Film Festival begins with a free screening of The Pit and the Pendulum at 7 p.m. today at the Atlas Cinemas at Great Lakes Mall.

That’s right. As part of our month-long celebration of Edgar Allan Poe, you can see this classic film (starring Vincent Price and directed by Roger Corman) on the big screen in the comfort of an air-conditioned theater.

You don’t even have to register. Just show up. Bring the whole family if you want. (However, you should know that this movie has a couple moments that might scare the kids. We are talking about Price and Poe, after all.)

And that’s just the beginning. For the next four weeks, we’ll be offering free screenings of classic Vincent Price films that were inspired by Poe.

The showing times are:

You’ll also be able to see scary short films that were created as part of our Know Poe Video Contest. You’ll be impressed (and terrified) by what the filmmakers in our community made.

So that’s the deal: A classic horror movie on the big screen, short films by local filmmakers and all for free.

So how are you spending your Thursday night?

Visit Mentor Library’s website for more information on the month-long Know Poe celebration. There are programs for kids, teens and adults and they’re all free.
