It Came From Schenectady presents
SUMMER OF ’84
(with the entire RKSS creative team IN ATTENDANCE!)

RKSS (Roadkill Superstar),  the creative team behind the cult hit TURBO KID, will be making a tour stop at Proctors to unveil their latest creation – SUMMER OF ’84 – in advance of its official U.S. release!

Davey, a 15-year-old conspiracy theorist, suspects his neighbor, a beloved local police officer, of being the elusive serial killer featured nightly on the local news. With the help of his often skeptical friends – including a slightly older girl who all the boys have a crush on – the mischievous teens begin spying on their neighbor in an attempt to gather evidence against him. After all, as unlikely as it all may seem – every serial killer lives next door to someone!   Not yet rated. 105 minutes.

“Summer of ‘84  starts out as a children’s mystery book come to life.  It’s a lot like Goosebumps without the supernatural element. People are undoubtedly going to compare it to Stranger Things and probably to a lesser extent 2017’s IT, but that’s just due to the 1980’s setting, the John Carpenter-esque synthtrack, and the main characters being tweens. This isn’t a Stranger Things/IT knock-off, it really does do its own thing and has its own tone, and then that tone goes to some ridiculously dark places. It is a slow build… but during the film’s climax, I was genuinely anxious and uncomfortable. It went places I never thought in a million years a film like this would go…  At a certain point, this movie kicks into high gear and never looks back.” – FILM THREAT
