The Los Angeles LGBT Center is encouraging the community to stay at home tonight with two screenings of Elvira’s Haunted Hills Movie on the Eve of Halloween.
The Center and Scream Factory dare you to join the spooky fun for a special late-night ‘movie screaming’ of Elvira’s Haunted Hills starting tonight, Friday, October 30. There will be two screenings. One will take place at 7 p.m. (PDT) / 10 p.m. (EDT) and
9 p.m. (PDT) / 12 a.m. (EDT). The shows will stream live at lalgbtcenter.org/hauntedhills
The Mistress of the Dark herself will join the free virtual screening of this 2001 cult classic film, complete with a costume contest and exciting prizes signed by Elvira herself.
Set in 1851 in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, Elvira and her maidservant get kicked out of an inn for a slight monetary discrepancy during their journey to a can-can revue in Paris. They are rescued by Dr. Bradley Bradley, who takes them to stay at Castle Hellsubus in the hills high above the village. While there, Elvira meets the residents and discovers that she happens to resemble the deceased former wife of his Lordship the Count Vladimere Hellsubus.
Submit photos of your gourd-geous costume here to participate in the costume contest. Photos will be featured in a virtual costume parade during the screening. Deadline to submit photos is October 28 and winners will be announced during the screening on October 30.
With an eerie goal of raising $6,666 in honor of Halloween, all donations will directly fund the Center’s life-saving programs and services. Donations can be made here or directly through the RSVP page.
