“The Little Vampire,” which will be shown as a part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Youth Program Series, is based on the best-selling book series by Angela Sommer (more than 12 million copies worldwide) and deals with the many adventures of a taunted nine-year-old boy who dreams of seeing vampires…or is it a dream? Not to mention some flying vampire cows….
The screening will take place on [ Friday, October 20th at 7PM ] at the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara. The kid-star of “The Little Vampire” is pint-sized Jonathan Lipnicki of “Jerry Maguire” infamy, who plays Tony Thompson, and the ubiquitous Richard E. Grant also shows up in a cape. “The Little Vampire” has already had a solid U.K. debut, and New Line is bringing it into the States for this special left-coast premiere before the large scale release on [ October 27th. ]
Tickets range from $5 for a single child admission to the film to $70 for a two adult/ four kids pass, plus the after-screening party. Call the Lobero box office between 9AM and 6PM at [ (805)963-0761 ] for information.
