Event Details

Saturday, November 19, 2022
7 p.m.
Cast: Charlton Heston, Rosalind Cash, Anthony Zerbe
Heston is the last man on earth in the freakiest and funkiest of the three (so far) screen adaptations of Richard Matheson’s post-apocalypse horror novel, I Am Legend. As the seemingly sole survivor of a man-made plague, Heston spends his days cruising a ghost town version of Los Angeles, watching a 35mm print of Woodstock in an abandoned movie theater, and gunning down some particularly gruesome creatures of the night.
