Chapeltown Picture House is back – and just in time for Halloween. After temporarily closing up shop following a stint at Track’s converted-warehouse taproom behind Piccadilly, their team have taken up residency at Grub’s recently-revamped Redback Project home and put together a weekend of spooky halloween classics for audiences to enjoy in a safe and socially-distanced environment.
Debuting on Thursday 3o October, visitors will be able to experience the visceral Nicolas Cage epic Mandy on opening night, followed by 1974’s Italian science fiction horror The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue and John Carpenter’s indestructible classic The Thing on Halloween night, followed by Wes Craven’s stabby-meta-horror Scream on Sunday 1 November. Tickets will be priced £7.50 and are available now from the Chapletown Picturehouse website.
Beyond this weekend’s horror-themed fun, the Chapeltown team hope to welcome pop-culture fans to a range of events hosted at the top floor of their new Grub home – from video game nights using their state-of-the-art equipment, live podcast recordings, comedy evenings and more. In order to keep everyone safe during their visit, they’ve also implemented a one-way system, air purifiers and socially-distanced seating so you can enjoy your popcorn and rest easy knowing you’re in good hands.
Fri 30 Oct - Sun 1 Nov, Chapeltown Picture House, 50 Red Bank, Manchester, M4 4HF., £7.50
