The film will be shown in its entirety at 7PM with doors opening at 5:30PM to allow time to visit with vendors and see a replica of The Silence of the Lambs cage in the very room the iconic escape scene was shot.
From 5:30pm to 7pm enjoy the following:

Victor has been on many cases and has a research team that consults him. He will be bringing Blessed Salt and Holy Water to give to people who would like it.
