'They're here' tonight in Tompkins Square Park; plus 'Poltergeist'

The Films in Tompkins series continues tonight with "Poltergeist," plus a pre-movie music set by Timbila.

Per Wikipedia, our go-to source for 1980s horror films:

Poltergeist is a 1982 American horror film, directed by Tobe Hooper and co-written and produced by Steven Spielberg. It is the first and most successful film of the Poltergeist film trilogy. Set in a California suburb, the plot focuses on a family whose home is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct the family's youngest daughter.



And, next Thursday marks the end of the series:

Aug. 23 — (rescheduled from July 26) Goldfinger, Music by The Luddites

Free. Gates Open at 6 p.m. Music Starts ½ Hour before the Start of the Film (sundown). Dates subject to Rain Delays.

Developers should watch this film and keep in mind what happens when you build on sacred ground.

@Goggla - For the record developer's are sponsoring the film. Bob Pearl from Tower Brokerage is one of the main sponsors and he is fast joing the likes of Ben Shaoul, Icon Realty and Steven Crowmen as one of the worst in the hood.
