Street Food Cinema offers indoor horror for Halloween

Hollywood Gothique’s favorite cinematic event of 2019 was Street Food Cinema’s Cinema Phantasmagoria, which transformed the Million Dollar Theatre into a sort of Halloween spook show, with costumed characters and a sinister walk-through tour revealing the behind-the-scenes history of the haunting. The 2020 pandemic lockdown prevent any similar event from taking place that year, and 2021 was also a no-go, but Halloween 2022 sees company offering another immersive cinematic experience, this one titled Slasher Cinema.

Slasher Cinema will take place on two nights, October 22 and 29. This first, titled “Totally ’80s,” will screen A Nightmare on Elm Street. A week later, “That’s So ’90s” will feature Scream. As with their 2019 presentation, the lobby will be decked out for the season, with photo ops, music, games, and a full bar. Guests are encouraged to wear costumes themed to the event.

Both nights will feature two screenings. For the first, doors open at 5pm, and the film starts at 6:30pm. Doors open at 8:30pm for the second show, with the film starting at 9:30pm.

Advance tickets cost $32 for general admission and $42 for the Reserved Section in front of the screen. Prices at the door will be $5 higher.

In addition to Slasher Cinema, Street Food Cinema will offer a handful of outdoor horror movie screenings in venues around Los Angeles. Titles include Hocus Pocus, Twilight, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Psycho. For information about start times, locations, and ticket prices, visit Street Food Cinema’s schedule.
