Horror has come to Hope in a big way this Halloween.

The newly reopened Hope Cinema is featuring a full weekend of horror film classics, and Antlers has hit the big screen at other select theatres.

Antlers is a full feature film that was filmed in Hope in 2018 and stars Keri Russell. After much waiting, it opens in theatres tonight (Oct. 29).

Hope Cinema’s Halloween Film Festival is family friendly – at least in part. They’ll be showing Corpse Bride and Beetlejuice in the afternoon on Friday, Saturday and Sunday before kicking it up a notch for the horror fans out there.

Evening offerings on Oct. 29 are The Nun (7 p.m.), Curse of La Llorona (9 p.m.) and Lights Out (10:45 p.m.).

On Oct. 30, they’ll be showing The Lost Boys (5 p.m.), the original Nightmare on Elm Street (7 p.m.), and Exorcist, Uncut (9 p.m.).

And then on Halloween, there is a haunted house trick or treat at 3 p.m. with free candy for the kids.

Evening shows are It (7 p.m.) and It Chapter 2 (9 p.m.).

All movies are $10 each per person, while a full weekend pass is $50.
