Haim it up: Brattle to screen 'Lost Boys' tomw

Hotline repost because the Brattle is awesome: “Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die… It’s fun to be a vampire.” -- Ain't that the truth. Three cheers to the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, as tomorrow night it pays tribute to fallen teen idol Corey Haim with a screening of 1986 vampire flick "The Lost Boys." Let's show those "Twilight" kids how we did it back in the day...

(1986) dir Joel Schumacker, w/Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Kiefer Sutherland [97 min]

We were saddened this week by the tragic death of one of our childhood cinematic companions, Corey Haim. Haim established himself as a pop culture icon in the late '80s with roles in "Lucas," "Silver Bullet," "License To Drive," and, of course, the vampire classic "THE LOST BOYS."

As a tribute to Haim, we’re interrupting our regular programming to present a 35mm screening of his most iconic screen role – as Sam Emerson, a kid who moves into a small California town with his family and winds up confronting a group of vampires that plague the area.

Just to up the '80s ante, THE LOST BOYS also features Kiefer Sutherland in his creep-tastic, pre-24 years and Corey Feldman as Sam’s wisecracking, vampire-hunting compadre.
