Horror Movie Madness Series Returns to the Logan Theatre
The Shining is just one of the many highlights of the “Horror Movie Madness” series at the Logan Theatre in October.

The Logan Theatre in Chicago brings back its “Horror Movie Madness” film series for the 7th year in a row. The venue's regular late night series tends to have horror and cult screenings throughout the year, but straight horror is guaranteed each night in October!

Horror Movie Madness 2018 runs October 2nd-31st, screening classic Halloween-themed movies and horror while bartenders whip up creepy cocktails in the lounge as fans gaze upon the horror posters around them. The theater itself will also be decorated with frightful delights.

Tickets are currently available for $9 each. Classics like Psycho, Young Frankenstein, Night of the Living Dead, The Shining, and more will be shown. A special screening of Nosferatu (1922) with talented organist Jay Warren will be $12.
