The 2006 Chicago Horror Film Festival - Season 7
In our seventh season we moved into the historic Portage Theater. A true jewel in Chicago history, the Portage Theater provided us with larger capacity and a huge lobby allowing us to do a larger event. We brought in more guests, vendors, bands, another breathtaking performance by Ron Fitzgerald and much more! We also introduced a new hostess, Pearls Mahone of Fangoria fame, We also introduced the first performance of gothic metal band DiAmorte featuring vampire theatrics during the live stage performance! And capped the weekend with musical performances by The Wanderers, and the Devilocks. With the rapid growth in our new found venue, we moved to make CHFF an annual event as opposed to our previous twice a year schedule.
NOTE: We are currently looking for photos / history help with this event. If you had a film screen with us or any promotional materials, please CONTACT US. A large portion of our festival history was lost several years ago and we would love to rebuild our history with more detail. Thanks!
