Staff Pick: Leprechaun at the Gateway

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, the Gateway will show a special presentation of the campy horror classic "Leprechaun." It isn't a great film by any means, but it's hilariously awesome in its awfulness - especially if you've spent the day pounding pints with your mates.

Starring a pre-"Friends" Jennifer Aniston in her feature-film debut, it's pretty much what you'd expect. A family is terrorized by an evil leprechaun who wants his pot of gold back. The best part is the wee one's ridiculous one-liners - "Try as they will and try as they might, who steals me gold won't live through the night." And the Gateway's Martini Shot Bistro has a number of Irish drink specials to help lines like that go down easier.
