Late Night Drive-In brings horror to West Hollywood

The Late Night Drive-In at the Andaz Hotel on the Sunset Strip will put horror films in heavy rotation this October, featuring such titles as A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and Suspiria.

Running since August, Late Night Drive-In is relatively upscale in terms of drive-in experiences, offering wine, champagne, and fine food from the hotel’s kitchen (no outside food allowed). The programming tends to be old-school art house, loaded with classics and critical faves. Along those lines, the Halloween schedule emphasizes classic and cult titles from 1970s and ’80s.

The schedule so far is listed below. More titles may be added.

  • October 2: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
  • October 3: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
  • October 23: The Hills Have Eyes (1977)
  • October 24: Halloween (1978)
  • October 29: Suspiria (1977)
  • October 30: An American Werewolf in London (1982)
  • October 31: Young Frankenstein (1974) & Braindead (a.k.a. Dead Alive, 1992)

Late Night Drive-In will be screening non-horror films during October as well, including Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell To Earth, starring David Bowie, on October 10.

Screenings start at 8pm; admission begins at 6:30pm.

Tickets cost $56.25 plus tax, which grants admission for one car and all occupants; food is extra.

The address for the Andaz Hotel is 8401 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. Get more information here.
