By Mahoning Drive-in Theater (other events)

2 Dates Through Oct 21, 2023

On Friday and Saturday, October 20-21, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater invites you and your family to a Nightmare Party, with three frolickingly frightening family classics on the giant outdoor screen, and Trunk or Treat for the tykes before showtime! Dress to impress each night for a chance to win "Best Costume" prize packs!

On Friday night, the monsters ghoulishly gather and throw a MAD MONSTER PARTY? (1967)  From Rankin-Bass, who brought seasonal joy to generations with Rudoph, Frosty, and Santa Claus stop-motion classics, comes their singular big-screen spooktacular, starring the voices of Boris Karloff and Phyliis Diller, in an animated kooky convention of creepers!  Music, laughs and chills await all who accept the invitation!

Once the party is cleaned up and you think you can relax, it’s time for THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993) on 35mm, the Tim Burton written and designed holiday horror classic in which the king of Halloween Town, Jack Skellington, decided to bring a little Christmas cheer to his creepy kingdom, resulting in a musical classic beloved by generations.

Saurday night’s frights begin when a young girl moves into an old house and finds a portal to another reality filled with fun, she thinks she’s hit the jackpot, until CORALINE (2009) discovers that all is not what it seems, and behind the smiles of her new friends live a sinister purpose…  Based on the book by Neil Gaiman and directed by Henry Selick (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS), this candy-colored creeper sure to send chills up the spines of all ages.

We follow that with…THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS on 35mm, making it a Henry Selick double feature!

Gates open early at 5pm for our annual Family Trunk or Treat!  Showtime at Sundown (7:30p)

Arrive early for themed eats and raffles, a live DJ set, and more Halloweeny hijinks!
