Dark Shadows descends on Public Library

Experience television’s most popular gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows, during an afterschool screening at 4 p.m., Thurs., Oct. 28, at the Cloquet Public Library. The television series, which ran from 1966 to 1971, featured Barnabas Collins, a 200-year-old vampire who believes he has found the reincarnation of his long lost love, among other things. The series aired after school, and, at the time, youngsters raced home from school to watch.

Twilight fans will enjoy this vintage vampire tale. The showing will feature a summary of the show’s beginnings as well as the episode of Barnabas’s arrival. Dark Shadows is available with permission from MPI Media Group.

The program is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call 879-1531. (drawing by Jesse Fultz)
