Harkins has been hosting Tuesday Night Classics for years, but it’s this screening near the top of 2022 for which we’re the most excited in the coming months. John Carpenter’s classic body horror benchmark, a loose remake of a ’50s film, features a team of Arctic researchers led by Kurt Russell who must survive after stumbling upon a shape-shifting alien — a discovery that means any one of them might not be who they say they are.

Set 25 years after a series of murders in Woodsboro, this fifth film in the iconic “Scream” franchise simultaneously serves as a sort of reboot and sequel. It may be the first film in the franchise not directed by the late horror maestro Wes Craven (instead helmed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett), but it does see the return of beloved faces like Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell — along with a new cast of teens and a new killer. Rated R for strong bloody violence, language throughout, and some sexual references.
