Experience Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Live

Note: This post has been updated with new information since tickets went on sale on July 3.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice reaches screens on September 6, but you need not wait that long to rub shoulders with the infamous bio-exorcist, because Beetlejuice Beetlejuice: The Afterlife Experience is coming to Los Angeles in August. Inspired by the upcoming movie, the live event provides an immersive excursion into the Afterlife, where visitors can explore the world of the recently deceased, enjoy interactive entertainment, take photos on recreations of the movie sets, enjoy themed food and drink, and purchase merchandise in the Afterlife Souvenir Shop.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is being released by Warner Bros, which also presented live promotional events in Hollywood before IT and IT: Chapter Two hit theatres. Those were relatively short efforts offered free of charge in order to promote the films. This time the studio is charging admission, so hopefully we’re going to see something much bigger than before.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice: The Afterlife Experience runs on weekends and select weeknights from August 23 through October 6. Adult price starts at $25 for the 70-minute show, which is open to all ages. The venue is the Ovation Hollywood, Suite 201 at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood. Get more information here, or read the press release below…

LOS ANGELES (June 26, 2024) — In a ghoulish collaboration, Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and Fever are bringing the strange and unusual world of Tim Burton’s “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” to life. Fans will soon have the chance to step into BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE: The Afterlife Experience, opening Friday, August 23 at Los Angeles’s Ovation Hollywood (6801 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood). The one-of-a-kind 11,000-square-foot experience will open in anticipation of “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice,” the hugely anticipated sequel to the original film, which will open exclusively in theaters on September 6, 2024.

BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE: The Afterlife Experience will take guests on a journey into the iconic universe of everyone’s favorite bio-exorcist through over 11,000 square feet of all new and movie-packed touchpoints. Featuring recreated sets, live entertainment and various photo ops, fans will be immersed in the world of the recently deceased. Inside the experience, guests will knock three times to reveal a portal  and cross the threshold into the Afterlife, where the one and only Beetlejuice awaits alongside a cast of eclectic ghosts. Grab an exclusive passport and take a seat in the Waiting Room next to a pair of ghosts; take your place on the cover of the Handbook for the Recently Deceased; come face to face with a legendary sandworm; and so much more. Themed food and beverage offerings will also be available for purchase at the Afterlife Diner.

BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE: The Afterlife Experience will also feature a selection of limited-edition merchandise and collectibles inspired by the film’s distinctive imagery at the Afterlife Souvenir Shop, open to both ticketed and non-ticketed guests.
