An annual Late Night at the Logan Series
Tues-Thurs night screenings | Fri-Mon night screenings 
Tickets are $12 unless noted



Scary season is upon us this October with The Logan Theatre's annual Horror Movie Madness festivities. This month-long series features a set of classic horror films, a one-night screening of Nosferatu with live accompaniment, The Logan's annual costume party, and a free family matinee double feature. Pipeworks Brewing Co. is featured at the bar all month, and we're throwing a mutant baby shower at The Logan with Bucket o' Blood Books & Records on the 21st, before a screening of It's Alive. We'll close out the month with a run of Beetlejuice and John Carpenter's Halloween.


Showtimes range from 10:30 pm to 11 pm, with earlier screenings in the week leading up to the holiday. Costumes are welcome during designated festivities, especially on October 28th before the opening of Beetlejuice, at our annual Halloween Party.

Join us early and hang out at our bar or in the Lounge. Partake in a cryptic cocktail from our drink menu or enjoy any of your favorites from our fully stocked bar.
