CGV Cinema offers Haunted Halloween Experience

For Halloween 2017, CGV Cinemas Buena Park 8 is morphing into a haunted movie theatre, featuring seasonal decor, live (or is that dead?) zombies, and theatrical engagements of Happy Death Day, Leatherface, and Jigsaw.

The official press release promises “a Halloween wonderland, complete with creepy decorations, spooky noises, a delicious Halloween-themed concessions menu and – on the weekends – live wandering zombies just dying to take photos with guests. Specialty food items include Batty Pizza, Franken Finger Hot Dogs, and Halloween themed popcorn in a variety of colors, all of which pairs perfectly with soju cocktails such as The Witches Brew and The Candy Corn. Attendees can also get a ticket to Knott’s Scary Farm, where they can continue the Halloween fun.”

The schedule of films is:

  • Happy Death Day (Universal Studios) – 10/13
  • Leatherface (Lionsgate Films) – 10/20
  • Jigsaw (Lionsgate Films)  – 10/27

You can find details on the films, including trailers, in our calendar listing of events at the Buena Park 8.

The Haunted Theatre Experience takes place from October 13 through 31, with zombies appearing on the weekend after 7pm.  CGV Cinemas Buena Park 8 is located at 6988 Beach Blvd, Buena Park, CA 90621. The official website is here.
