Event description

Description

The horror trilogy that began with “The Evil Dead” ends with “Army of Darkness” at The Varsity on Oct. 19.

This 1993 sequel from director and writer Sam Raimi is full of tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery action, blood, guts and comedy. Returning as the one-armed Ash is Bruce Campbell. It also features Embeth Davidtz and Marcus Gilbert.

Ash is now a supermarket employee who is transported back to the medieval 14th century by the powers of a mysterious book, along with his Oldsmobile ’88. Armed only with a shotgun, his high school chemistry textbook and a chainsaw that mounts where his missing appendage once resided, the brutally competent Ash establishes himself as a besieged kingdom's best hope against an "army of darkness." Somehow, he manages to find a little romance along the way with Sheila (Davidtz).

Tickets are $7 or $5 for students. They are available in advance at www.thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com. Tickets also will be available at the venue when doors and the bar open at 6:30 p.m. The Varsity Bar features beer, wine, select cocktails, non-alcoholic beverages, snacks and popcorn.

“Army of Darkness” is rated R for violence and horror; no one younger than 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian.
