Event description

Description

By popular demand, we return to Sunnyside Cemetery one more time this October, as we bring John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN to this historic outdoor landmark Halloween night!

SpectiCast, in association with Compass International Pictures, is distributing a RESTORED and REMASTERED digital version of the groundbreaking 1978 chiller, supervised by cinematographer Dean Cundey - and the good folks at CIP have agreed to allow us an outdoor screening! And where better to experience Halloween than at Sunnyside Cemetery!

John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN reigned for decades as the most successful independent film of all time, premiering on October 25th, 1978 in Kansas City, where word-of-mouth saw it expend to Chicago, and New York where it became a steady box office sensation. Over 35 years later, the movie has made its money back more than 200 times over - it is now the third most successful independent film of all time, often imitated, never surpassed.

WHERE IS SUNNYSIDE, AND WHERE DO I PARK?

Sunnyside Cemetery is located at 1095 E. Willow Street, Long Beach CA 90806. Click here for map and directions! Limited parking is available on site on a first-come, first-served basis – please carpool. In the likely event of a full lot, there is additional ample street parking in front of, and west of, Sunnyside Cemetery. IF YOU PLAN ON LEAVING THE EVENT EARLY, OR IF YOU ARE DROPPED OFF/TAKE AN UBER OR LYFT, DO NOT PARK ON SITE OR ENTER GATE - parking at Sunnyside is STACKED, meaning once you're in, you're stuck through the evening (though why would you want to leave early?). If you plan to leave early, please park on the side streets, cross carefully across Willow Street, and enter by foot through the gate!

WHAT'S "HALLOWEEN" ABOUT?

In one of horror cinema's most iconic opening scenes, six-year-old Michael Myers puts on a mask and inexplicably murders his sister Judith on a cold Halloween night in 1963. He is sentenced and institutionalized under the study of psychiatrist Sam Loomis, who ultimately reaches the conclusion that his patient is not just unreachable and untreatable, but literally pure "evil on two legs." Fifteen years later, while being transferred for a court date, Myers escapes, returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois to terrorize the otherwise quiet community on Halloween night.

WHO DO WE THANK FOR THIS EXPERIENCE?

Screenings at Sunnyside Cemetery are made possible by the staff and volunteers of Sunnyside Cemetery and The Frida Cinema, the talented musicians and artists who contribute to our events, and YOU, our audience who keep the events going, but none of it would be possible without the generous support of Lola's Mexican Cuisine. Now located at two locations - 2030 E. 4th Street in Retro Row, and 4140 Altantic Ave. in Bixby Knolls - Lola's is far more than a celebrated destination for foodies looking for a mind-blowing culinary experience. The owners of Lola's are passionate about Long Beach, and are celebrated philanthropists and partners who have supported artists, entrepreneurs, cultural initiatives, and non-profit institutions ranging from The Frida Cinema and Sunnyside Cemetery to the Museum of Latin American Art, the Gay & Lesbian Center of Long Beach, and countless other institutions and programs. We thank Lola's for their continued love and support, and for all their efforts in making magic happen, both in and out of our bellies!
