Theater pub seeks those thirsty for some 'Evil Dead'

The David Minor Theater at 180 E. Fifth Ave. will host Thirsty Thursday Throwback at 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

The screening is part of a "Heckler Night" presentation of its nightly showing of the cult classic "Army of Darkness." The 1992 film was the third in director Sam Raimi's stylish, comic-book-like horror trilogy that began with 1982's "Evil Dead."

"Army of Darkness" is equal parts sword-and- sorcery-style action, gore and comedy. Bruce Campbell returns as the one-armed Ash, a supermarket employee who is transported by the powers of a mysterious book back to the 14th century along with his Oldsmobile '88.

Your second drink at the pub theater is only $1 Thursday. More information at or 541-762-1700.
