It was a remarkable night that further cemented CCC film fests as the area’s unquestioned can’t-miss event.

Last night horror fans came to The Strand Theater at 165 Main St. in Seymour, Connecticut for “Bite Night”, a double feature of two classic vampire movies on the big screen, ‘Fright Night’ and ‘The Lost Boys.’ The evening was the launch of a classic film fest being brought to local horror fans by Connecticut Cult Classics.
