Event description

Description

This is a special event, in partnership with Stray Cat Theatre, who is staging "Let the Right One In" starting April 12. We will be showing the film, with an introduction from Stray Cat's Artistic Director Ron May, as well as a Q & A with the play's two young lead actors. Come learn about the process of adapting a novel/film for the stage.

Remember that awesome teenage vampire romance all the cool girls went crazy for in the aughts? No, not “Twilight,” the other one. We’re talking, of course, about the great 2008 Swedish film “Let the Right One In.”

Set against the beautifully stark backdrop of Nordic winter, the film tells the story of a lonely, bullied boy who falls in love with a dark and mysterious neighbor girl with a thirst for blood. Eli has been 12 years old for over 200 years, which does weird things to a girl. Genuinely freaky, it's also an elegant exploration of loneliness and adolescence.

PHX Film Collective is proud to screen this modern horror classic with the help of Stray Cat Theatre, which presents its stage adaptation of the tale starting April 12 at Tempe Center for the Arts.
