Beyond Fest 2013

October 10 - 26 - Egyptian Theatre

It’s October which means Fall, but more important it means Halloween and costumes, trick-or-treating, candy and scary movies. and starting this Thursday, the Egyptian theater becomes a very scary place.  

Beyond Fest is a month-long series of horror movies on the big screen - complete with special guests, Q&As, costume contests, premieres - including the director’s cut of a movie fans have been clamoring for years to see - as well as 3 live concerts (which are all sold out, and it happened almost immediately upon the tickets being made available).
