On Friday, March 23 from 1:00-2:00pm in Room 300B, Warner Archive will present SubZero and the Evolution of Mr. Freeze.

Ferranti & Matthew Patterson and some surprise guests as they show remastered SubZero footage and discuss the film and the evolution of Mr. Freeze from a goofy threat into an endearing multi-dimensional villain who just wants to find a cure for his dying wife.
On Saturday, March 24 from 7:00-8:00pm in Room 300B, it’s Warner Archive Meets Trailers from Hell.
