Street Food Cinema Halloween Screenings Information
As its name suggests, Street Food Cinema screens movies outdoors. Their year-round programming includes some genre titles, but things definitely take a turn toward terror every October, with horror films screened in several locations around town: Victory Park in Pasadena, Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades, etc.
For Halloween 2019, Street Food Cinema introduced a new Halloween Cinema Event, Cinema Phantasmagoria, a sort of immersive experience inside the Million Dollar Theatre, with costumed actors transporting guests back into the 1920s (reviewed here). Unfortunately, the 2020 pandemic lockdown prevented a follow-up event that year. Street Cinema resurrected the basic approach in 2022, offering two installments of Slasher Cinema, also at the Million Dollar Theatre.
