The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series Queer Horror lays 2019 to rest with THE SENTINEL on 35mm!
Sponsored by Double Mountain Brewery & Cidery, Finger Bang Nail Salon, and Lincoln Memorial Park & Funeral Home, this December edition is hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and opens with an off-the-wall preshow starring Portland drag all-stars as a cabal of legendary pop culture characters!
One of the last great prestige horror films of the 1970s, Michael Winner’s THE SENTINEL (1977) stars Cristina Raines as Alison, a model looking for a New York apartment away from her overbearing boyfriend Michael (Chris Sarandon). When a shady realtor (Ava Gardner) shows her the perfect brownstone, Alison immediately falls for it and her eccentric new neighbors – including a flamboyant cat-owner (Burgess Meredith) and lesbian ballet dancers (Sylvia Miles & Beverly D’Angelo) – until she realizes the building has a horrifying history, and it might have something to do with the blind priest on the top floor.
With a stacked ensemble including Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Walken, Jerry Orbach, José Ferrer, John Carradine, and Deborah Raffin, THE SENTINEL is simultaneously a glitzy time capsule, a gay panic nightmare, and a masterfully made horror classic packed with stars, cats, cakes, and demons aplenty.
