Halloween Update: Haunted Caverns, Dracula and Costumed Dim Sum

Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater 

Oct 17th-Nov 24th 

Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 8-10pm

 Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater is a project by Chris Weisbart that turns the street level of our space into a haunted cave. In the basement, we built an 18-seat Victorian opera house that is accessed via a hidden staircase behind a stalagmite in the cave. We are commissioning a wide range of artists and performers to develop works around hauntings, the uncanny, and the mysterious to take place in the space.

Some Favorite Writers | Dracula!
Oct 29 7:30PM
Hammer Museum

"Perfusing music, theater, cinema, and visual arts, Dracula is perhaps best known for inspiring some of the most chilling and erotic imagery in literature. Experts and enthusiasts Jonathan Grossman, Leslie Klinger, Elizabeth Miller, and David Skal join Mona Simpson to present selected vampire writings and speculate on society’s eternal fan(g)dom for this shape-shifting, undead archvillain. Costumes welcome.

This series of readings is organized by Mona Simpson, author of My Hollywood, Anywhere But Here, and Off Keck Road. Readings are followed by discussions with Simpson."

Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6PM.

Deep within the bowels of HELL lies the cursed scriptures of the UNDEAD. On this unhallowed eve, the living shall BEG for MERCY as scripture removes it's dust, DEMONS rise from slumber, and EVIL comes to dance on earth…. Also, some dick jokes.
