The Lost Boys


Mon 5/6, 6:00p

The 1987 classic is back on the big screen for one night only! Featuring a pre-show reel of retro trailers and clips, plus a post-film horror discussion led by Justin Rawlins and Kris Rose.

Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), the angst-ridden Michael soon falls for Star (Jami Gertz) -- who turns out to be in thrall to David (Kiefer Sutherland), leader of a local gang of vampires. Sam and his new friends must save Michael and Star from the undead.

Justin Owen Rawlins is assistant professor of media studies and film studies at the University of Tulsa. His research and teaching explore film history, screen actors and acting, Hollywood promotional practices, media audiences and fan cultures, stardom and celebrity, and genre. His recently published book, Imagining the Method, explores the intersections of film performance, stardom, and popular reception to reveal what it is we're talking about when we talk about the so-called "Method."

Kris Rose is a native of Tulsa Oklahoma. She was active in the punk scene from the mid 90s until 2019 when she sold her independent bookstore, Bound for Glory Books. She has also travelled extensively across the United States by train (hopping and Amtrak), hitchhiking, Greyhound and tour van. She currently resides in Tulsa with her husband and many pets. Her articles have appeared in the Tulsa Voice where she most memorably interviewed Wanda Jackson. Several of her short stories and essays have been published by both Red Dirt Press and Microcosm Publishing. In her spare time she lectures about her love of horror movies and their influence on her own brand of feminism.
