Cinema On Ice Film Series-THE THING (1982)

Palm Springs Cultural Center


January 21, 2024    
6:00 pm

Jan 21, 6pm THE THING (1982) John Carpenter (109 mins.)
We LOVE the Howard Hawks version as well.  Your homework is to watch it!  But John Carpenter really zeroes in on the cold…and the horror!  Both versions are based on John W. Campbell’s more broadly influential 1938 sci-fi novella, Who Goes There?  Shift your shape into our comfortable seats.  R.J. MacReady (Kurt Russell) will build a cozy fire…. This one is EXTRA-fun on the Camelot’s big screen!

Themed Drink: The MacReady
J&B lowballs on ice…or call your lowball because not everyone loves Scotch!

Join Deserted Films at the Historic Camelot Theatre (at the Palm Springs Cultural Center) Jan 21 – Feb 25 for a series of wintry films culminating in a special screening of Dr. Zhivago (1965)… the first film screened at the Camelot when it opened in 1967!

A FROSTY Film Series at the Historic Camelot Theatre

The Summer Heat Film Series was so much fun we thought we’d follow it up with some more weather-inspired cinematic cheer. Get ready for Cinema on Ice, with Deserted Films!

Post holiday blues? Does the chill in the air make you miss shoveling your driveway? Come get cozy at The Palm Springs Cultural Center’s Historic Camelot Theatre with a series of films set against a wintry backdrop.
We know how funny it is to our snowbird friends when the denizens of Palm Springs pout about the cold! So let’s celebrate it instead!

Screenings will feature live introductions and thematic film ephemera provided by Melissa Dollman and Devin Orgeron of Deserted Films along with themed cocktails.

Attendees can save $4 off the price of two drinks when they pre-purchase on Eventbrite only.
