1973, Warner Brothers, 121 min, Dir: William Friedkin
Friedkin adapted William Peter Blatty’s bone-chilling best-seller into the classic American horror film in which Catholic priests Jason Miller and Max von Sydow go head-to-head with the unholy one, inhabiting the body of young Linda Blair. “I auditioned 500 girls and went with Linda because I felt she was the most intelligent, most pulled-together youngster I had ever met.” – Friedkin. With Ellen Burstyn.
Special Ticket Prices: $10 Member, $12 Student/Senior and $15 General. No vouchers accepted for this or any other specially-priced program.
