GFC to honor late Wes Craven with special screening of "Scream"

Wes Craven, the Godfather of modern horror, passed away on Aug. 30 leaving behind an impressive film legacy and a slew of bummed-out gore geeks. Though the filmmaker is gone, Gateway Film Center is making sure he isn't forgotten with a special screening of Craven's "Scream".

From "The Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise, to "The Hills Have Eyes", to "The Last House On The Left", Craven's work has been keeping fans up at night for decades, and left a lasting mark on the horror genre.

To honor his memory and contribution to cinema, Gateway Film Center will be hosting a free screening of "Scream", Craven's meta slasher flick that launched a franchise, and introduced a new generation to the "rules" of horror movies. Free tickets will be available on-site at 5 p.m., and the film will begin at 8 p.m. In the meantime, fans can toast to Craven in the GFC Lounge where the definitive "Nightmare on Elm Street" documentary, "Never Sleep Again", will be playing.
