2012 Halloween Horror Screenings at the American Cinematheque

DRACULA 1931 Bela Lugosi and Helen Chandler
DRACULA with Bela Lugosi - one of the classic horror films screening in October

This October, the American Cinematheque will be screening a month’s worth of horror films in celebration of the Halloween season, providing a great way for Los Angeles fright fans to enjoy some visceral thrills without walking through a haunted house attraction. ┬áIf you prefer your screams on screen, and if you prefer shuddery spooks to grizzly gore, you should head on down to Hollywood this Halloween. Highlights include a double bill of THE CAT PEOPLE (1942) and I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (1943), a double bill of PSYCHO (1960) and DRESSED TO KILL (1980), and a double bill of DRACULA (1931) and HORROR OF DRACULA (1958). On the lighter side, there will be two 70mm screenings of GHOSTBUSTERS (1984), a digital 3-D screening of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954), and the 7th Annual Dusk-to-Dawn Horrorthon.

Films will screen at either of the Cinematheque’s two theatres:

  • The Egyptian Theatre: 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA
  • The Aero Theatre: 1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90403
