The Whisperer in Darkness will screen at San Pedro Festival in September

Yesterday, Southern California Festival Director Aaron Vanek dined with the fine folks of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society at Mel's Drive-In in Hollywood to discuss plans for this year's HPLFF.

Yes, their new film, the talkie feature Whisperer in Darkness will play at the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro in September.

This screening will be very special; since San Pedro is in their backyard, they can bring the shop with them: expect a large exhibit of props and goodies from the movie to be on display both inside and outside the theater.

1931 marks the year that both the Warner Grand Theater opened and Lovecraft's story was published in Weird Tales magazine, so we plan on celebrating both landmarks' birthdays in style.

Please join us this September 16 & 17 in San Pedro, California, for what is shaping up to be a spectacular Lovecraft Film Festival.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel, a mere three blocks from the Warner, is offering a special discount on their rooms for the weekend. Enter group code HPL when booking for the special rates.

Stay tuned for more updates!
