As we celebrate our 25th anniversary here at SYFY, we’ve teamed up with Alamo Draft House for a few movie screenings. If you’re considering a geeky road trip, these could be well worth a long weekend.

First up, we have a September 2 screening of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which will take place during a one-night-only campout (complete with a camp fire) at Devil’s Tower National Monument in Wyoming. Even better? The film was recently remastered in glorious 4K resolution, so it’ll look better than it ever has on the big screen. If you’re not able to make this special screening, the 4K restoration and Director’s Cut will also be hitting theaters nationwide for a limited engagement to start September, so be sure to check your local listings.

Fast forward a couple of weeks, and we’ll be heading back to the cabin for a screening of Sam Raimi’s comedy horror classic Evil Dead 2 on September 14. In honor of the film’s 30th anniversary, we’ll be literally heading into the woods of Austin, Texas for an outdoor screening of the bloody good horror classic. We’re even bringing star Bruce Campbell along to keep us same, and everyone in attendance gets a free copy of Campbell’s latest book Hail to the Chin.
