A protracted power outage on Cleveland's west side — the 180,000th such outage this year, thanks to Cleveland Public Power — cut short Cleveland Cinemas' all-night movie marathon at the Capitol Theatre Saturday. The annual 12 Hours of Terror event was canceled after the first film of the night was screened. 

Cleveland Cinemas announced today, however, that the remaining six films will screen this coming Saturday, and that tickets for the rescheduled event have been reduced to $25. 

“The 12 Hours of Terror is not only an annual tradition for the Capitol Theatre, but for hundreds of regular attendees as well,” said Cleveland Cinemas' Dave Huffman in a statement. "I appreciated everyone’s patience and understanding on Saturday when Mother Nature cut our power. I’m happy that we will be able to finish the program this weekend and hope that some new faces will decide to join us this Saturday.”

The rescheduled event will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will include the following titles:
  • Bubba Ho-Tep (2oo2)
  • Event Horizon (1997)
  • The Hills Have Eyes (1978)
  • The Human Centipede (2009)
  • Candyman (1992)
If you attended this past Saturday, you can still use your wristband for admission this coming Saturday. Attendees are reminded that 12 Hours of Terror is an adults-only event. No one under 18 will be admitted.
