I live (nearly) in Dublin, GA, and it’s a small town. We have about 16,000 people in city limits and 60K in the micropolitan area (because in Georgia, small towns are SMALL so we center around one town). We have a theatre downtown that in the past was a cinema called Martin Theatre. Now it’s called Theatre Dublin and before this year, it hosted local live events. However, in the past year, they bought a projector and screen and have been showing movies as it did before the 80s when we got a ‘real’ cinema in town.
For the month of October, they are showing various horror films (and various other Halloween flicks) for the season. Tonight, the first movie of Horror Fest was The Shining. As someone born in 1991, I never got to see The Shining on the big screen, and honestly, it was INCREDBILE! I thought it would be about $10 per ticket, but me and my sister got in for $10 total! For that price, I might see every single movie of Fright Fest just because it’s so cheap and every movie is one I like. I was already planning to see Psycho and Scream, but I think there is also Ghostbusters, Casper, Friday the 13th, IT (original), Scream, and The Rocky Horror Picture show on ACTUAL Halloween!
Rocky Horror on Halloween is THE BEST THING EVER! I’m SUPER excited for that!
Either way, if you live within driving distance of any of the showings during Fright Fest in Dublin, Georgia at Theatre Dublin, check them out! It’s a place of local history and I can only hope that these new cinema showings will help provide funding for further Dublin history!
(Also, as random as it sounds, don’t dismiss the ‘history on a pole’ display outside of Theatre Dublin. There’s a post that has a thing on it and if you press the buttons, it tells you the history of whatever you selected! I’m not shocked we got Top Small Towns with that kind of convenience!)
