Tue Oct 29 @ 7:00 pm: Featuring a four-course menu & conversation with Victoria Price!

Run Time: 120 min.

Nitehawk presents a special Film Feast that celebrates Vincent Price’s legacy in the visual and culinary arts with an inspired four-course menu, videos of his art-related work, and a conversation with his daughter, Victoria Price, before a screening of HOUSE OF USHER (1960).

Vincent Price’s contribution to the history of cinema is undeniable but it’s his life-long devotion to the visual arts that represent his true passion. From collecting his first art print at the age of eleven to founding the Vincent Price Art Museum (with so many valuable contributions in between), his life’s work was to make art more accessible to the general public. We’re honored to celebrate Price’s legacy in the arts and film along with his other love, cooking, with this very special event. Best of all, his daughter Victoria Price, will be in conversation with Nitehawk’s (huge Vincent Price fan) Caryn Coleman!

ART VIDEOS & talk with victoria PRICE

To show Vincent Price’s commitment to art, we’ll be screening short films like his Walker Art Center PSA and his Sears Art Gallery tour video to establish, in his own words, how much art meant to him.

Vincent Price’s daughter, Victoria Price, will join Nitehawk’s Director of Programming, Caryn Coleman, in a conversation about his love of and life in the visual arts. We’ll talk about his Sears Collection, his autobiography I Like What I Know, and the very special, community-driven Vincent Price Art Museum.

HOUSE OF USHER (1960)

House of Usher is the first of the Edgar Allan Poe film collaborations between Roger Corman and Vincent Price. Since the theme of our evening is art, we’re highlighting a film in which the artwork really comes alive.

Siblings Madeline and Roderick Usher are the two remaining members of the Usher family lineage who live in a New England house brought over from England centuries ago. Along with the house came a curse that’s plagued all surrounding life outside of the home and all of the sanity left inside. Convinced that he and his sister must never continue the evil family line, Roderick attempts to shield her away from suitor, Philip Winthrop. And how do we know of this family’s evil? Well, it’s the presence of the familial portraits throughout the house, painted by Price’s character, that visually establish the ever-present cursed family who are always watching and influencing the living. They also account for Roderick’s obsession with his ancestors, one that consumes and debilitates him. And while audiences waver on the realness of Roderick’s insanity, Corman punctuates the story with images of these paintings as a reminder that evil presented is very much real.
