Scary Movies Playing Near You

By: Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers | October 13, 2017

Halloween is only one day in October, but it certainly doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it all month. From haunted locations, attractions, and even hayrides, everything seems to be haunted during the month of October. Seeing that today is Friday the 13th, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight local theaters showing some the scariest movies of all-time. So grab a large tub of popcorn to hide behind and enjoy these horror classics on the big screen.

Michigan Theater

The classic Michigan Theater in downtown Ann Arbor is having not one, but two Halloween inspired movie series throughout October. The theater will be running a Classic Monster series along with a Stranger and Stranger series throughout the whole month. The Classic Monster series will include movies like “The Mummy” on October 16, “The Wolfman” on October 23, and “The Monster Squad” on October 30. The Stranger and Stranger series, which is also a celebration of the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” will include “The Mist” on October 19 and “Polergeist” on October 26.

Penn Theatre

The Penn Theatre is a small old-school theater in Plymouth, and every year they are known for their Shock-tober Classics series. The series might be halfway over, but it’s not too late to enjoy some early cinema scares as the theater will be showing “War of the Worlds” on October 19 and “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” on October 26.

Adults can catch two of the greatest horror movies of all-time with “Psycho” on October 27 and 28 and “Halloween” on October 28.
