The Power of Christ Compels You to See The Exorcist Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

30 July 2017 7:45 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Your mother’s in here, Karras. Would you like to leave a message? I’ll see that she gets it.”

The Exorcist screens this Friday and Saturday nights (August 4th and 5th) at midnight at the Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at the Tivoli’  Midnight series.

This ground-breaking, starkly filmed thriller The Exorcist stands for many as one of the most terrifying films of all time. Fairly explicit for 1973, it raised the bar in film-making for realism and adult horror and has been emulated many times. However, it is set apart by its well-written (Oscar-winning) script and realistic performances. Ellen Burstyn is an actress who begins to sense unusual behavior in her preteen daughter (Linda Blair). The bizarre symptoms (open sores, violent thrashing, etc…) escalate as Burstyn seeks help from all conventional avenues. Finally, she determines that Blair is possessed by Satan (or a demon at least) and must be exorcised. »
