POLTERDOOK: Festival Fright Night

POLTERDOOK: Festival Fright Night

February 23, 2024

The Seattle International Film Festival has provided spooky, stirring, and surprising experiences for five decades, from hosting the World Premiere of Poltergeist in 1982 and, decades later, another horror film also destined to become iconic–The Babadook (2014). Audiences were forever changed.

Celebrate the Festival’s upcoming 50th birthday with this one-night-only double feature of these two frightful masterpieces. All attendees will be entered to win a Film Pass to the 50th Seattle International Film Festival ($525 value) plus tickets and other Festival goods, and can enjoy concessions specials, and a complimentary, limited edition 5”x7” print of the 50th Festival poster, which will be revealed at the event. Be there to kick off this year’s Festival or be forever haunted.

6:30pm - Poltergeist
9:00pm - The Babadook

Tickets: $15 | $10 SIFF members - Includes admission to both screenings
