If you missed out on watching The Exorcist in a haunted gaol last month, we’ve got some news for you. Haus of Horror is back, this time with a screening of Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice and they’ve upped the ante in terms of location. Set to take place in an actual cemetery, the evening promises a true immersive experience complete with a photo booth with Beetlejuice himself, a Betelspritz Bar serving themed cocktails and even a cemetery tour prior to the screening. Sign us up!
Beetlejuice screening by Haus of Horror
It’s all happening at Camperdown Cemetery in Newtown this Saturday, March 25. Founded in 1848, it’s one of the oldest surviving cemeteries in Sydney so if you’re looking for a close encounter with the supernatural, this might be your best bet.
Hosted under the stars, the event kicks off at 6pm with a tour that will take you around the spooky nooks and crannies of the cemetery. While you wander the grounds, a DJ will be on-site spinning tunes along with food vendors serving up bites and drinks. Don’t forget to stop by the ‘Betelspritz Bar‘ which will be serving up themed non-alcoholic cocktails including The Ghost With The Most with black tea sweet syrup, lemonade, grenadine, green apple sweet syrup, topped with fresh strawberries.
Equal times whacky, fun and creepy, the movie follows a recently deceased couple who seek the help of bio-exorcist Betelgeuse to scare away a family that has moved into their old home. Starring Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis, the movie has become a cult classic since its release in 1988.
If you prefer to BYO, just pack a picnic with your choice of food and drink (no glass or hard liquor is allowed) and carry blankets and pillows along to make it extra cosy. Grab your tickets here.
