LEVEL and The Montalban
When it's happening: 8pm
Film series Rooftop Cinema Club turns to horror come late October and on Halloween, they're offering not one, but two horror classics. At LEVEL in downtown LA, there'll be a screening of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Adapted from the Stephen King novel of the same name, this iconic horror film takes place in a very haunted Colorado hotel during its winter off-season, pitting the family that signed on as caretakers against the spirits that lurk its halls.
Over at The Montalban in Hollywood, it's John Carpenter's Halloween (1978). The first in the franchise, Halloween introduces us to Michael Myers: the masked, knife-wielding antagonist of Haddonfield, Illinois (or South Pasadena, for those of you who've tracked down the actual filming locations).
Both screenings involve comfortable deckchairs, wireless headphones, and gorgeous views, though LEVEL requires any adult beverages to be preordered in advance, which you may do online when you buy your ticket.
