Late Night Movie: The Exorcist
Four decades after its release, director William Friedkin’s supernatural horror classic THE EXORCIST still remains one of the most frightening films ever made. Based on the hugely popular novel of the same name by William Peter Blatty (who also wrote the screenplay), the film was both a massive commercial and critical success, garnering an impressive ten Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture).
And it seems that Cafe Roma has morphed back into Grant St Socialhouse (was formerly called that) so hopeful of new management, a better line up of live music, and a wine “list” (not just one red/one white!)

Vancity Theatre 1181 Seymour St 10p.m. $11
John Carpenter’s 1988 film. When a drifter discovers a very special pair of sunglasses, it gives him a whole new perspective on life. See, these are a kind of x-ray specs. They reveal the true nature of the world we live in: the power elite is in fact an alien race, feeding off our apathy through the promotion of rampant consumerism. Far-fetched? Tell that to Donald Trump…
