Downtowners looking to gasp should be sure to catch the second night of the Million Dollar Spooktacular, taking place at the Million Dollar Theater on Broadway.

While classic horror films in a historic Broadway theater is an easy crowd-pleaser, the star of Friday's opening was George the Giant. Offering a mix of stand-up comedy and impressive stunts, the fire-breathing, glass-walking, sword-swallowing seven-footer isn't an act you're likely to find elsewhere around Downtown.

The event is being put on by the Los Angeles Historic Theater Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting programming in historic theaters around Southern California.

Along with an evening horror bill, featuring the film "The Reanimator" at 8pm, the Spooktacular also offers two Saturday kids' shows. The 11am shorts are in Spanish, with a 3pm time offered in English. Both feature costume contests in conjuction with Grand Central Market.

Million Dollar Spooktacular / Kids' Matinees: 11am and 3pm; Adults $5, Kids $2 / 8pm -- "The Reanimator", tickets $15 / Million Dollar Theater, 3rd and Broadway.
