The Rocky Picture Horror Show will be screened at the Paramount Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 30, at 6:30 p.m. Be prepared to withstand a blizzard of rice and toast.

A series of Halloween flicks is on its way to the Paramount Theatre, organized by the Drunk in a Graveyard podcast crew and the Kamloops Film Society.

On Friday, Oct. 22, the classic 1978 John Carpenter film Halloween will kick off the series with a showing at the Paramount at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults.

A week later, on Friday, Oct. 29, at 6:30 p.m., another classic will rise from the dead at the Paramount, with a showing of George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Members of the Kamloops Film Society can also see this one for free. For everyone else, tickets are $5.

If you’re looking to get a little more involved in what appears on the big screen, The Rocky Horror Picture Show will play at the Paramount on Saturday, Oct. 30, with full audience participation — including singing, dancing, props and costumes. That show begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $12.

The spookiest day of the year will feature a pair of family-friendly showings. Casper and Goosebumps will show at 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., respectively, on Sunday, Oct. 31. Tickets are free for society members and $5 for non-members. Prizes will also be awarded for costumes and treats provided for younger viewers.
