There are all kinds of cool old buildings around this area of town. Like right down the street on Mount Vernon, where a number of you probably went trick or treating this year. This film is about a house right around the corner from us, and how the spooky ambiance of an old home can really get to your paranoid side sometimes. Watch it here

An important part of Día de los Muertos is honoring our loved ones who have passed with an altar. Pictures and other memorabilia representing who this person was in life are placed onto the altar in order to guide their spirit to visit us where we are celebrating.
During Ghost Talk, October 31 - November 2, we will have a community ofrenda outside of the theater. This altar will stay up for the entire three days of the event, and all members of our community are free to leave items honoring their loved ones. You just need to provide the frame and your picture can go anywhere on the altar, along with anything else you'd like to leave. Come to Ghost Talk with your items or drop them off early so we can put them up for you. We can also make a color photocopy of your original photos if needed.
