Escape the summer heat and get the chills in our cinema with the launch of this summer's creepiest horror novel, The Hatching, in conjunction with a screening of cult classic Them! Presented with Penguin Random House Canada, the evening of frights pairs a new book about monstrous carnivorous spiders with a 1954 film about giant, mutated ants spawned by atomic fallout. Them! is “by far the best of the 1950s cycle of 'creature features'” according to Time Out—not to mention it’s one of Moby’s top 10 films, who would’ve guessed!—while The Hatching promises to be an addictive and “apocalyptic extravaganza of doom and heroism,” according to Publisher’s Weekly. We promise to keep the floors clear of bugs as you settle in for some creepy fun.

The first 50 people to purchase tickets will receive complimentary copies of Penguin Random House’s hotly anticipated new horror novel The Hatching ($30 value).

Co-presented by Rue Morgue Magazine.
