For One Night Only: Halloween Cemetery Screening of The Shining

— by Caroline on Crack

One of my most favorite horror movies evuh is screening at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Halloween night: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The Overlook Hotel. “Come play with us, Danny!” Twins! What a creepy way to celebrate a night of ghouls and ghosts, whilst sitting on graves! Muuhahahahahaha!

Cinespia’s popular summer to-do is back for one special night only. You thought it was crazy crowded during the summer screenings, it’ll probably be more of the same this night as refugees from costume parties and slaves to the work week will opt for the cemetery screening with their friends than a late Wednesday night out. I, myself, was debating between the Hollywood Halloween parties and another quiet scary movies night at home. This sounds like a nice cross between the two.

Grab a bunch of your friends and dress up like Night of the Living Dead zombies, spread out some blankets and feast on a nice picnic of…spaghetti and meatballs. Heh. Or even better, I always thought a cool couples costume would be dressing up like Jack and Wendy. Him with his ax and crazed expression and her with her huge kitchen knife, scraggly hair and bathrobe.

The gates open at 5:30 so get there EARLY. Tickets are $10 at the gate. And remember: No tall chairs or your neighbors will wanna decapitate you.

PS: The Shining reenactment by bunnies can be enjoyed right here.
