A 25th anniversary screening of Joe Dante’s 1984 hit horror-comedy, starring Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates in a small town overrun by mischievous monsters on Christmas Eve. The film’s weird mixture of laughs and shocks disturbed some parents, worried that their kids were seeing a film that was too violent for a PG rating; consequently, GREMLINS, along with INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, which was released the same year, helped beget the PG-13 rating. GREMLINS screens as part of the New Beverly’s Joe Dante series.
