Nancy Boy: Denver FilmCenter's Keith Garcia gets A Nightmare On Elm Street tattoo

When we chatted with Keith Garcia, Denver FilmCenter's Programming Manager, prior to last week's showing of I Am Nancy, he told us a secret: Garcia promised that in honor of the film's star, Heather Langenkamp -- who came out to Denver for the screening to talk about her role as Nancy Thompson in the Nightmare On Elm Street series -- he was going to get a tattoo. Of her face. Garcia delivered on the promise, and we caught up with him to talk about the new ink on his arm in homage to Freddy's final girl.
