Since recovering from the 2020 pandemic, American Cinematheque has resumed screenings at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica and Los Feliz in Los Angeles but not the Egyptian in Hollywood. The American Cinematheque does not offer a Halloween film festival per se, but for two weeks in September and October it does present the annual Beyond Fest, which includes horror and exploitation titles both new and old, including premiers and guest appearances. They also have an annual all-night Horrorthon at The Aero Theatre.
Note: The American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood is undergoing a renovation, which was scheduled to be completed sometime in 2022.
