The Late Show

Because awesome movies are awesome, the Normal Theater presents The Late Show.

Most Fridays & Saturdays at 10:00pm join us for cult classics, B-Movies, genre films, and new works from emerging directors that may not be quite right for our 7:00pm crowd.

See what we have coming up below.



A compendium of five short but terrifying tales directed by George A.  Romero and written by Stephen King. Contained within a single  full-length feature, this film conjures scares from traditional bogeymen  and portents of doom. In one story, a monster escapes from its holding  cell. Another focuses on a husband (Leslie Nielsen) with a creative way  of getting back at his cheating wife. Other stories concern a rural man  (Stephen King) and a visitor from outer space, and a homeowner (E.G.  Marshall) with huge bug problems and a boozing corpse. R / 120 min.

Evil Dead 2


The  second of three films in Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD series is part horror,  part comedy, with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) once again battling  horrifying demons at a secluded cabin in the woods. After discovering an  audiotape left by a college professor that contains voices reading from  the Book of the Dead, Ash's girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) becomes  possessed by evil spirits that are awakened by the voices on the tape.  Ash soon discovers there is no escaping the woods. R / 84 min.

Rocky Horror Picture Show

10/27; 10/28

In  this cult classic, sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan  Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie  mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry). R / 101 min.

The  Initiation Ceremony will begin at 10:00pm with the film to follow  immediately after. We consider welcoming all newbies an important part  of the ROCKY HORROR experience, so please treat 10:00 as the start time  for the evening.

Theatre of Ted returns to provide a full  shadow-cast experience. New this year is a focus on you, the audience-  we want to hear all your call-outs and traditions for the show, so while  there will still be plenty of cast members throughout the house to make  sure newbies understand what's going on, you won't be competing with a  chorus.

All tickets are $10, with a portion of proceeds going to the Theatre of Ted Scholarship at Illinois State University.

Blade of the Immortal

11/3; 11/4

Samurai Manji has taken a lot of lives, both innocent and guilty, and now lives life in feudal Japan as a criminal. After being cursed with immortality until he kills enough evil men, Manji meets a young girl who enlists him to be her body-guard. Swearing loyalty, protection and vengeance against the group of sword fighters who slaughtered her family, the unlikely duo set on a remarkable quest to make right against those who did them wrong. 

The 100th film from Takashi Miike; it's completely nuts. R / 151 min. In Japanese w/ subtitles.
