Glenn Danzig's "Verotika" will see its Northwestern U.S. theatrical premiere on Tuesday, September 10 at 9 p.m. at San Francisco's historic Castro Theater.
Following two successful consecutive sold-out engagements at Chicago's 1000-seat Music Box Theater back on June 13, and a sold-out Los Angeles premiere at the 800-seat Montalban Theater on June 25, "Verotika" will make its way up north to the Bay for a one-night engagement on Tuesday, September 10 at 9 p.m. This event — that is open to the public — will feature personal appearances by Danzig and key cast members who will engage in a personal question-and-answer session with live audience members immediately following the screening. Exclusive "Verotika" merchandise will also be made available for sale in the Theater's Lobby, including hand-numbered Lobby Cards and Theatrical posters.
Shudder called "Verotika" "a total roller coaster ride of emotions through anticipation to glee to disgust to sympathy to fascination" while Horror.com's Jacob Davidson said, "This is a film destined for cult attraction." Tastemaker Pat O'Sullivan from Daily Grindhouse wrote: "'Verotika' is the best horror movie I've seen in theater's this year" as A.V. Club's headline screamed "the instant midnight masterpiece that is Danzig's 'Verotika'!"
San Francisco's Castro Theater, located at 429 Castro Street, was built in 1922 and holds over 1,400 seats including an all-leatherette ceiling — the last known leatherette ceiling in the United States and possibly the world. One of the few theaters in the world that can show a 70mm film with separate DTS audio, the Castro Theater has become home to some of the nation's most prestigious film festivals and in recent years has been the site for numerous gala tributes to many legendary Hollywood stars, including Tony Curtis, Ann-Margaret, Debbie Reynolds, Kim Novak, Jane Russell and Sandra Dee.
