This year marks the 30th anniversary of John Carpenter‘s classic sci-fi film They Live, and what better way to celebrate than by watching the movie with some of the people who helped bring it to life?
In honor of the anniversary, Hollywood Horrorfest is hosting a special concert, screening, and Q&A of the film on Friday, July 27, with proceeds benefitting L.A.’s Vincent Price Art Museum. The evening is set to feature a concert by Alan Howarth, an electronic musician and composer who co-scored some of Carpenter’s most iconic films, like Escape from New York, Christine, Big Trouble in Little China, and of course, They Live. Howarth is expected to play pieces from all of these films and more, offering a night to remember for ’80s sci-fi and horror fans.
After Howarth’s concert, the film will be screened and then followed with an audience Q&A featuring Howarth, actor Peter Jason, who played Gilbert in the film, and other guests that will be announced at a later date. There’s a planned raffle where guests can win some sweet They Live merch, and we’d also bet on seeing some sort of tribute to star Roddy Piper, who passed away in 2015 — though that’s just speculation on our part.
If you’re interested, you can pick up tickets here. And if you can’t make it, then you can instead just sit back and enjoy the infamous fight scene from the film below.
