Stay in your car. We'll Bring the Horror to You
The Shining Light Drive-In is hosting a special Halloween screening of the best bad horror movies of all time. But, a series of questionable decisions sabotage the event, throwing the management, employees, and audience into the middle of a supernaturally charged horror show filled with murder, masked killers, and classic horror film tropes.
Murder at the Drive-in is an original horror-comedy is designed to bring pandemic-proof fun to Halloween in Denver. Audience members will remain in their cars while the story unfolds over the radio, on the movie screen, and with socially-distanced, masked performers killing and being killed all around them.
Audience members can even choose to park in “murder spots” where their cars will finish the night thoroughly decorated with (washable) blood.
Presented in partnership with Edgewater Public Market, this Denver Halloween Event invites audience members to arrive early, wear your costumes, go shopping, and get refreshments from your choice of over a dozen local vendors in the Food Hall.
Murder at the Drive-In is an opportunity to enjoy Denver Halloween 2020, while supporting small, local businesses most impacted by the pandemic.
The show runs about one hour. Audience members are asked to stay in their cars for the duration of the performance. Masks are required inside Edgewater Public Market, and when interacting with “drive-in staff.” Performers will wear masks throughout the event.
This show is a humorous homage to classic horror films, and as such, it will incorporate simulated violence and gore. Many haunted house elements will be used, including blood, jump scares, and some flashing lights. Recommended for ages 13 & up.
