As a part of its “Out After Midnight Film Series,” Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will present the cult classic slasher movie “Friday the 13th” on Friday, Oct. 13 at 9:30 p.m.

Originally released in 1980, “Friday the 13th” tells the gruesome tale of a group of teenagers setting up a summer camp in the woodsy area.

Superstitious locals warn against it since Crystal Lake has a history of murder, but the fresh-faced young people (Kevin Bacon, Adrienne King, Harry Crosby, Mark Nelson, and Jeannine Taylor) pay little heed to the old-timers.

Ultimately, they find themselves stalked by a brutal killer.

The film helped spark a resurgence of horror movies as well as an entire franchise of “Friday the 13th” films, souvenirs and related merchandise. In all, the original film inspired 11 additional films featuring the series as well as a made-for-television series.

“Out After Midnight” is a series in which “unique” and quirky movies are screened beginning prior to, but letting out after, midnight.

The $8 admission charge includes a small popcorn and a small fountain beverage, as well as pizza (while supplies last) donated by Boyz from Italy. 

“Friday the 13th” runs 95 minutes and is rated R.
Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office (315-337-6453) and online at www.romecapitol.com.

Doors will open for the event at 9 p.m.
