Fright Night Series features ‘The Devil’s Doorway’


For the next event in its Fright Night Series, Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the horror movie “The Devil’s Doorway,” at 9:30 p.m. on Friday, July 13 and Wednesday, July 18.

What unholy terrors lurk behind the walls of a secretive Irish convent? It’s Northern Ireland, 1960.

Father Thomas Riley (Lalor Roddy) and Father John Thornton (Ciaran Flynn) are dispatched by the Vatican to investigate reports of a miracle—a statue of the Virgin Mary weeping blood — at a remote Catholic asylum for “immoral” women.

Armed with 16mm film cameras to record their findings, the priests instead discover a depraved horror show of sadistic nuns, satanism, and demonic possession.

Supernatural forces are at work here — but they are not the doing of God. Inspired by the infamous true histories of Magdalene Laundries — in which “fallen women” were held captive by the Irish Catholic Church — this found footage occult shocker is a chilling encounter with unspeakable evil.

The movie runs 76 minutes and is not rated.

Admission is $7, $6 for students and military and $5 for Capitol Friends.

Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office (315-337-6453) and online at
