Outside of the theatrical history of the building itself, the Historic Blairstown Theater also has the unique distinction of being seen in the original Friday The 13th film that was released in 1980. As such, it has become a popular building to take photos of by touring fans looking for the filming locations for the original Voorhees slasher whodunit.

On Friday September 13th at 8:00 PM, the Historic Blairstown Theater will present Friday The 13th 1980 for all fans to attend. Please visit their website,, for more information.

This is a great opportunity for fans to not only tour the town that gave birth to the franchise, but actually watch the film in one of the locations that appeared in the seminal slasher classic!
