25 Years Ago : Opening Night In Sioux City

Twenty-five years ago, Siouxland residents flocked to the Orpheum Theater in Sioux City IA to see, well themselves! As the Sioux City Journal covered the event back in 1984, many of the extras that played a part in making the fictional town of Gatlin Nebraska a name on the map of cinematic horror came to see their hometowns in Iowa on the big screen! Special invitations were given for an advance showing to those who had a part as an extra, were community council members, or a member of the media.

A special thanks goes out to our good friend Corey Frizzell who made this great article available to us. And be sure to check out The Sioux City Orpheum Theater website at for it's great history and upcoming shows and attractions!
