Come and join us after hours this February for our Film Night at the Museum where we will be showing the cult classic the Lost Boys.

In this '80s hybrid of horror and teen flick movie, Lucy (Dianne Wiest) and her sons, Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim), move to Santa Carla to live with Lucy's lovable but grumpy father (Barnard Hughes). Sam starts to hang out with Edward and Alan Frog (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander), a pair of vampire-obsessed comic-shop clerks. Soon Michael falls in with some actual vampires after becoming enamoured with, one of their victims. When Michael visits the cavernous hangout of David and his cronies, he becomes an unwilling member of the bloodsucker biker gang.
