Sam Raimi’s ‘The Evil Dead’ Continues Drive-In Expansion; New Dates and Locations Announced

The ultimate experience in grueling terror has returned to the drive-in thanks to Grindhouse Releasing, with Sam Raimi’s horror classic The Evil Dead beginning its drive-in revival earlier this month. We’ve got the latest wave of new dates/locations for you this week.

For starters, Bruce Campbell will be bringing safe fun to his fans at the Midway Drive-In Theater in Dixon, IL as part of his Drive-In Social Distancing Tour from Friday, July 10th to Saturday, July 11. Bruce will take the Midway Drive-In stage each night and perform extended Q & A’s, in addition to introducing all three feature films of his original Evil Dead trilogy during this epic two-night event, including Grindhouse Releasing’s 4K Drive-In release of Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. The event is presented by Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con.

On Friday, July 10, Bruce will present his Q & A and introduce a double feature of his cult classics, Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn (1987) and Army of Darkness (1993). 

On Saturday night, July 11, in addition to his Q & A, Bruce will introduce a 4K restoration of Sam Raimi’s original The Evil Dead.
