‘TIS THE SEASON 2 GET SP00KY, Y’ALL! Covid has complicated this most wonderful time of the year, but that just means we have to get a little more creative in our occult celebrations, yeah?

Here are some upcoming movie screenings that are happening safely outdoors the next few weeks in DC and Baltimore:

Addams Family

I genuinely can’t decide if I like Addams Family or Addams Family Values best, but either way, a real quality series to get in the Halloween spirit!

Showing at:

  • Cross Street Market (Baltimore) on Friday, October 9th (Socially-distanced seating is first-come, first-served, so arrive early to grab a table.)

Beetlejuice 

I don’t think I fully appreciated Beetlejuice until the last couple of years, but MY GOD, it is just so good! Truly an unmissable seasonal classic, which makes it all the greater that it’s screening multiple times this month.

Showing at:

  • Songbyrd on Friday, October 9th (Seating is very limited, and RSVP doesn’t guarantee entry, so keep that in mind! Two people maximum per table, and $25 minimum spend per table.)
  • The Charles Theater (Baltimore) on Saturday, October 24th (Bring a lawn chair and set up socially distanced style in the lot across from The Charles; tickets are $10 each.)
  • The Wharf on Thursday, October 29th and Friday, October 30th (Groups of 2-6 must reserve cabanas, which have a $20 minimum per person; this includes the $10 reservation fee. All guests must be 21+.)

(SO COME ON DOWN, I’LL CHEW ON A DOG!)
