Kimballs Twin Peak changes formats

Matthew Stevens, general manager for Kimballs Twin Peak Theater, sent out an announcement today that the theater would be changing its format, moving away from the indie and arthouse fare for which it's known and focusing on the more commercially viable horror, slasher and zombie flicks:

Dear Movie Fans,

It is my duty to inform you that as of this Tuesday, we will be saying goodbye to independent and foreign films in Colorado Springs. Kimball’s Twin Peak will be closing its doors to re-open on Friday, April 4 with some revisions to our format.

To counter the lag in ticket sales, we have decided to turn to more mainstream tastes and to that end we have decided to focus our energies on horror, zombie and high action slasher films. You can count on us to provide the very best in alien abductions, the walking dead and escaped convicts. As always, we will endeavor to bring you the best this genre has to offer.

In addition to the change in films, we have initiated changes in the wine bar as well. We will no longer be stocking micro brewed beers and will instead be offering a wide variety of canned, domestic products including, but not limited to, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Budweiser, Coors and Miller Genuine Draft.

In honor of the occasion, we will be kicking off the weekend with a marathon of classic films in the style to which you can all become accustomed:

Witchcraft 8: Salem’s Ghost
Terror at Tate Manor
A Feast of Flesh
Big Foot

Vampires vs. Zombies
I, Zombie: The Chronicles of Pain
Zombie Prom

Polterchrist: The Movie about Jesus and Murder
Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland

We look to your continued loyalty to help us in this transition. Thank you for the years of patronage and we look forward to seeing you all in the future.

Thanks and see you at the movies,
Kimball and Matt

P.S. – April Fool!

I kept wanting to think it was a joke. You are lucky it is.
