Looking for a spook this week, Victoria?
The most haunted time of the year has arrived and so has the return of the Monsters Haunted House!
After a couple year hiatus, the Monsters Haunted House returned at a brand new location, taking over the old University “Frights” Movie Theater in Saanich.
The monsters have taken over the old Landmark University Heights Movie theatre, and if you’re looking for a spine-tingling scare this week, you’re in luck.
After a successful return on October 9th, organizers have added additional days so horror fans across Greater Victoria can be spooked at a once bustling movie theatre now transformed by Monsters Haunted House to this year’s eerie ‘University Frights Theatre’.
The LandMark University Heights movie theatre closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A few months later, in July 2020, it was announced the theatre’s closure would be permanent. Other movie theatres have filled this space in the mall since 1987.
With the theatre closed and space abandoned… it’s the perfect place for some spooky fun!
From now until October 31st, Monsters Haunted House will be open from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., ghosts and ghouls will be ready to meet you at every turn.
Tickets for University Freights Theatre are available online or if a night is not sold out, “walk-ups” will be available by cash only.
Tickets will be limited to comply with provincial health guidelines and groups will be spaced out to encourage physical distancing.
The event reminds all attendees that weapons and costume masks are not permitted.
