Last month we told you that Grindhouse Releasing was going to bring Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead back to theaters in 2010. Today we have the official poster for the rerelease and the first batch of dates.
From Grindhouse Releasing:
Landmark Theatres will present the director's 35mm print of EVIL DEAD at special midnight shows in Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, New York, Houston, Dallas, and Los Angeles in the first quarter of 2010.
Grindhouse Releasing has created a new full-color movie poster for the theatrical reissue of the 1981 horror classic. Designed by Tad Leger, the collectible one-sheet features rare photos from the original EVIL DEAD movie poster shoot by Mike Ditz.
“We've had tremendous response to our announcement that EVIL DEAD has returned,” says David Szulkin, head of theatrical bookings for Grindhouse Releasing. “We want to show it in as many cities as we can, and encourage fans to contact us and petition their local theater to screen the movie.”
Endorsed by Raimi, producer Rob Tapert, and star/co-producer Bruce Campbell, Grindhouse Releasing's reissue of EVIL DEAD will hit theaters across North America in the coming year.
More cities will be announced as they are confirmed. The first dates and venues are as follows:
January 8-9: Uptown Theatre, Minneapolis
January 15-16: Esquire Theatre, Denver
January 29-30: Sunshine Cinema, New York
February 5-6: Egyptian Theatre, Seattle
February 19-20: River Oaks Theatre, Houston
