Nightmare On Elm Street - Robert Englund Reprises Freddy Krueger To Help Cinema Bosses

Nightmare On Elm Street star Robert Englund reprised his role as Freddy Krueger for a convention in Chicago, Illinois over the weekend (09-10Aug14) to raise money for a struggling cinema he frequented as a kid.

The actor underwent two and a half hours of make-up to raise cash for Chicago's Midway Drive-In Theater, so cinema bosses can upgrade their projectors.

Englund tells the local Fox News channel, "I love the Midway, I love the fact that they're saving drive-in movies. Like many young men of the Boomer generation, I think that's where I lost my virginity."

Englund charged fans at Flashback Weekend to get their photos taken with iconic boogeyman Freddy Krueger and all proceeds benefited the cinema.
