Row House of Horrors
After you get in a good scare at ScareHouse this month, pack into Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville for Row House of Horrors, a series of classic horror films, which runs from October 14 through October 31.
“Summer was busy, but people love to see scary movies for Halloween,” says Cara Popovich, Shift Lead at Row House Cinema. “It’s definitely the busiest I’ve seen it.”
Popovich says that the preceding October movie themes have been building to Row House of Horrors, with warm-up programming weeks like Vampire Week and When Animals Attack Week, but now it’s time to get down to some classic scares in time for Halloween. The Row House staff took great care into choosing the best films to show during this spooky time of year.
“The Row House of Horrors decision week was both the easiest and the most opinionated among our staff. We all picked them together, and we decided on the three that would run for the entirety of the program, which are Hocus Pocus, The Exorcist, and Carrie.”
In addition to these films, Row House will also be showing weekly movies, including Hereditary, The Amityville Horror, The Crow, and House (“a popular one, for sure”). Row House also puts on events to coincide with the movies, like a prom event for Carrie on Friday, October 21.
“We’re going to have a background with streamers, like you set up at prom, and people can come in costume and take photos.”
They’re also showing The Crow on Devil’s Night, which is extra eerie since the whole film takes place on Devil’s Night (October 30), and they’re hosting an amazing lineup of silent films for Silent Sunday on Sunday, October 23, with films including Nosferatu, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dante’s Inferno, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and Haxan.
“You can buy a pass for the entire day or come the day of and buy just one ticket for whatever you want.”
And on Wednesday, October 19, if you go to see The Exorcist at 7:10 p.m., you just might see a familiar ScareHouse face.
“A demon possessed girl will be coming,” says Popovich. “To have the interactive aspect of it, people love that with horror.”
Celebrate the most horror-filled time of year and get your fill of scary movies at Row House of Horrors at Row House Cinema now through October 31.
