The historic KiMo Theater in Downtown is hosting its annual Halloween Weekend, starting with a haunted tour. This behind-the-scenes tour will teach audiences about the dark legends and lore of the nearly 90-year-old movie theater and hopefully introduce them to a resident ghost or two. The tour starts at 4pm and 5pm on Saturday, Oct. 29. Tickets are a mere $5, but are limited and tend to sell out every year—so get over to quick to reserve your spot. KiMo is also celebrating the holiday with a trio of scream-worthy Hollywood horror flicks. Halloween’s Greatest Hits starts out with the slasher flick that introduced Jason Voorhees to audiences, 1980’s Friday the 13th. It screens Friday, Oct. 28, at 6 and 9pm. Next up with the serial killer who started it all, Michael Myers, carving his way through 1978’s Halloween. That screens Saturday, Oct. 29, at 2 and 7pm. The scares reach a fever pitch Sunday, Oct. 30, with a showing of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 shocker Psycho, starting at 2pm. Tickets for each individual film are $8 general admission and $6 students/seniors. All tickets are available in advance at The KiMo Theater is located at 423 Central NW.
