In light of Stephen King‘s birthday yesterday, it seems like a good time to mention a fun upcoming event being held at the Music Box Theatre. On October 16th, the Consequence of Sound and the Music Box will present a huge party celebrating King in all sorts of ways, and attendees are encouraged to dress up as one of his most memorable characters or at least like they are partying like it’s 1976.
“A Celebration of Stephen King” is aiming for a sort of surreal prom night theme where costumed guests may get photo ops with characters, listen to vinyl spinning away in the lounge, enjoy baked goods, themed drinks, and view Stephen King-related artwork!
The festivities begin at 10:30pm, to be followed by a midnight screening of Brian De Palma’s (1976) film Carrie, based on King’s very first published novel of the same title. Tickets are $12 for the entire event.
