Thrill-seekers of all ages are invited to experience Halloween come to life at Millennium Point’s Giant Screen later this month.
On Friday 31st October, families will be able to get crafty in the Create-a-Creature workshop from 11am – 1.30pm. Hosted by Birmingham-based monster makers Curious Oddities, children will get the chance to name, customise and take away their very own creature creation. Families can then sit back, relax and enjoy an afternoon screening of Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie at 2.30pm.
Later that day, Millennium Point will be taking guests back to the 80s with a double bill of Ghostbusters, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The only cinema screen in the UK to offer ultra-high definition, The Giant Screen will be presenting the re-mastered 4K anniversary edition featuring Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2.
Visitors will also be joined by The UK Ghostbusters, a costuming group who will be strapping on their proton packs and collecting cash for charity, Vasculitis UK.
For those of us who can handle a bit more scare, A Fright to Remember will showcase a triple bill of horror features from 6.45pm until midnight on Saturday 1st November. Selected by The Giant Screen, Zombie Walk Birmingham and DIE DAS DER, films will include Zombieland, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Shining. If that wasn’t enough, there will also be live performances from Ghost of Dead Airplanes and Anima in the Atrium Bar.
Neil Anderson, director of marketing, communications and events at Millennium Point, said: “We’ve always prided ourselves on hosting events that cater to a wide audience and our Halloween activity is no different.
“Whether you’re a family, a hard-core horror fan, or just fancy indulging in a bit of nostalgia this Halloween, Millennium Point has it covered!”
