"Fright Night Theatre" was a hosted horror movie show with Adam Keefe as the host, dressed like a vampire screening movies on Friday nights on WKBW-TV, Channel 7, Buffalo, New York between 1963 till 1969. Keefe was infamous for either showing a old Universal Movie or showing one of the many Mexican wrestlers versus monster movies. The character name is not known.

After the show ceased, WKBW-TV continued with a non-hosted horror movie show "Fright Night Late Show".
