Established in 2009, Fright Night Theatre is a year-round screening program that combines the best aspects of a film festival with the intimate and interactive atmosphere of grassroots revival cinema. Fright Night Theatre is not just a scary night at the movies – it’s a celebration of fringe film-making, controversial cinema, tongue-in-cheek B-movies, and the art of the macabre.

Fright Night Theatre's mission is to bring back the fun, communal atmosphere, and showmanship of going to the movies by showcasing shocking, scary, schlocky, and scintillating independent and mainstream horror / genre films to our die-hard genre film audience in and around the Hamilton, Ontario region. As the hybrid between a film festival and repertory movie house, we offer:

 No submission or entry fees!
 Press and reviews!
 Devotion to grassroots promotion of your film!

Canadian and International filmmakers and distributors are invited to submit feature and short films (both current and classic) in the horror, cult, and exploitation genres.
