Gaslamp to show classic Halloween cinema through the month of October

For reasons we don’t need to explain anymore, this Halloween season is looking to be a rather dreary season. But restaurant and music venue the Gaslamp is bringing along a bit of seasonal fear with a selection of Halloween-themed movie showings to go along with their outdoor dining experience.

Beginning Friday, Oct. 9 and continuing every Friday until Saturday, Oct. 31, will be a screening of some of Halloween’s most cherished cinema, culminating with the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Halloween night.

Movie tickets cost between $10 and $15 and require booking dinner reservations to enjoy the entertainment. Guests will be seated at socially distanced spaced tables on the outdoor patio area. Dinner and other refreshments are not included in the movie ticket price. Movies will be projected on a large, elevated screen.

Films to be shown this month include:

  • “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Beetlejuice”- Oct. 9
  • “The Shining” – Oct. 16
  • “The Exorcist” – Oct. 23
  • “Rocky Horror Picture Show” – Oct. 31 (Saturday)

Guests are required to follow all COVID-19 safety precautions, including wearing a mask to and from the event as well as stay seated at their designated tables.
