The Film


Brian De Palma | US | 98

With Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Nancy Allen, John Travolta. Brian De Palma’s masterful adaptation of Stephen King’s best-selling debut novel is one of the cinema’s greatest supernatural chillers. A wildly stylish and intensely emotional throat-grabber, Carrie stars a brilliant Spacek (in an Oscar-nominated role) as a mercilessly teased—and telekinetic—high schooler who exacts outsized revenge on her peers at the prom. De Palma’s extraordinary filmmaking skills are on full display throughout, and especially at the tour de force climax. Rated: R

Audience members are encouraged to dress up in prom attire! To enter in the Bloody Prom Contest, strike a pose at the drive-in near or inside your car and post the photo on Instagram with the hashtags #QDIProm and #QueensDriveIn. The Best Dressed winner and runner-up will take home prizes including membership to the Museum of the Moving Image, All Access passes to the New York Hall of Science, and more!
