Park Place flashback film
The original "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is the featured film this week in the Park Place Stadium Cinemas.
Not only did the slasher flick introduce audiences to the iconic horror villain Freddy Krueger, but it also introduced them to a young Johnny Depp.
Screenings are 4 p.m. Sunday and 4 and 7 p.m. Monday. Tickets are $5. Call 304-345-6541 or visit www.ourshowtimes.com.
Special film events in Huntington
Cinemark Huntington Mall in Barboursville will conduct two special film screenings this week.
At 8 p.m. Monday is "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," a fully staged pre-recorded production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical starring Donny Osmond. This sing-along version features subtitles for audiences and includes a question-and-answer session with Osmond live from Salt Lake City.
Tickets are $14 for adults, $13 for students and seniors, and $12 for children. An encore showing is at 7 p.m. April 4.
At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday is the 20th anniversary of "The Bodyguard," which was written by Morgantown's Lawrence Kasdan. (Hence all the nods to WVU in the film.) Tickets for it are $11.50 for adults, $10.50 for students and seniors, and $9.50 for children.
