Just in time for Halloween, Scranton Reads and the Weinberg Memorial Library present a free screening of Roger Corman’s suspenseful adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s short story The Pit and the Pendulum.

Vincent Price delivers a bone chilling performance as Nicholas Medina, the son of a member of the Spanish Inquisition, who is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife. Set in a moody Spanish castle this 1961 box office hit is full of betrayal and plot twists.

Join us on Friday October 17, 2014 at 7 p.m. in Room 305 of the Weinberg Memorial Library. Kevin Norris will lead a discussion following the film.

This screening is being held in conjunction with the  Lackawanna County Library Scranton Reads event and is open to the public.
