And Finally, my favorite part of being a film fan. The Best Repertory Cinema Screenings of 2010:

3) Dawn of the Dead (1978)A rare screening of the original in 35mm. Part of the Exhumed Films 24-hour horror fest.

2) Troll 2 (1990)/ Gremlins (1984) – Another Exhumed Films double-feature. A really fun bad movie in 35mm, following by an exciting and colorful classic of horror/comedy.

1) Phantom of The Paradise (1974) – Brian De Palma in 35mm! I had not seen this before, and this was by far the best film of the Exhumed Films 24-hour horror fest. A great film to see in the theater.
