Haven’t yet solidified your Halloween plans and want your kids to have a Hallowscream?
Here are three fun options over the next few days:
DiMenna Creepy History Museum’s Haunted Halloween Party
(170 Central Park West – at Richard Gilder Way, 77th Street)
Described by NYMetro Parents as: “A Halloween celebration with a side of history”, at the museum’s event:
“Kids and their families summon the spirits of the past through historical fortune-telling, ghost stories with acclaimed storyteller April Armstrong, photos with a spirit, creepy crafts, and of course…candy!”
For teens (and adults), this is the perfect place to watch (or rewatch) the terrifying classic, “Carrie”.
“It’s prom night at The Museum of Modern Art! PopRally is hosting a HallowSCREENing of Brian DePalma’s Carrie (1976), plus an exclusive viewing of the Louise Bourgeois prints and spider sculptures in the Museum’s Marron Atrium. Polish your tiara, break out your spookiest prom attire, and join us for drinks, candy, dancing, and the obligatory awkward prom photo before enjoying one of the most unforgettable prom scenes in movie history.”
Gravesend Inn: A Haunted Hotel
(at New York City College of Technology’s / City Tech in Brooklyn)
Called a “theme-park-quality Halloween attraction”, this annual house (since 2000) is produced by Theatreworks, City Tech’s resident theatrical troupe, with design, construction and operating support provided by students and faculty of the College’s nationally unique Entertainment Technology Department. Which will probably produce high-level screams in you!
Plus, afterwards, you get to watch a video of your terror on the big screen!
Have a thrilling weekend!
