2016 was a watershed year for Weird Elephant at The Grand Cinema! Our monthly genre series drew hundreds of local horror/cult/weird film fans from far and wide. Read on to see what all you may have missed from this film series and related events.
Why supporting The Grand Cinema through annual membership is awesome and worth every penny (and then some).
