Pershing Square celebrates Halloween throughout October with free outdoor screenings of classic horror films at "Friday Night Fright Flicks," beginning tomorrow at 8pm with "Carrie."

Guests are invited to bring a blanket and snacks, but note that as this is a city operated park, smoking and alcoholic beverages are not permitted. Underground parking is available.

  • October 1: "Carrie" - The Stephen King classic about a picked-on teen girl who uses her powers of telekineses to exact revenge at the prom.
  • October 8: "Psycho" - Gus Van Sant based his 1998 horror classic on this rarely seen Alfred Hitchcock gem, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
  • October 15: "Shaun of the Dead" - A British romantic comedy. With zombies. 'Nuff said.
  • October 22: "House of Usher" - No October is complete without a dose of Edgar Allen Poe or Vincent Price. This Roger Corman classic fulfills both requirements.
  • October 29: "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane" - It's Bette Davis vs. Joan Crawford in this psychological thriller about two sisters, both washed up actresses, exacting revenge against each other.
