LOGAN THEATRE HORROR MOVIES – Each year, The Logan Theatre has always celebrated the season with a great lineup of scary movies. This Halloween night, catch THE SHINING, HALLOWEEN (’78), HALLOWEEN KILLS, and, for good measure, check out DUNE. 2646 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, IL 60647.

Please check your local listings for other horror films playing at nearby theatres! Keep an eye out for Antlers, Titane, Lamb, Last Night in Soho, and Halloween Kills. Wear a mask, bring your vax cards, have fun, and be safe!

Hope you are all enjoying the spooky season and are having a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with all of my cake pans shaped like things such as a large bat, Frankenstein, 3D skulls (you can use it for pizza skullzones, cakes, chocolate, or ice) and mini brains!
