Halloween Update: Almost Final Plans

We've added as much as we can to the list.  TTDILA's Halloween Guide 2022 has been jam-packed and it's about to burst. Heck, we have run-off into November with Día de Muertos and haunts staying open so everyone can get their scares in. Here's highlights of what's happening this weekend. Grab that pumpkin and enjoy the somewhat last weekend of Halloween, because in LA it kind of stays around.

Olvera Street

For over 35 years, the merchants on Olvera Street have celebrated Dia de los Muertos. The celebration has evolved to incorporate the pre-Columbian, Aztec, Mayan and Catholic rituals surrounding death. Each night, a vibrant and colorful procession sets the stage for our ceremony.

Dia de los Muertos is, in fact, a celebration of life – it is not a time to mourn our loved ones, rather it is a time to remember the lives they lead and the many things they enjoyed during that life. Death is a part of life, and so we honor it. Dia de los Muertos at Olvera Street is the only celebration of its kind in Los Angeles – A nine (9) day festival, with a nightly procession, community altars on display, and entertainment.

The Theatre at Ace Hotel

We're back for our hugely popular annual Halloween mash-up of film and opera at the Theatre at Ace Hotel. This time we’ve got the Boris Karloff shocker on the big screen, complete with mad scientist, bumbling henchman and mob of torch-bearing villagers.

This 1931 masterpiece of horror was originally released without a musical score, which inspired composer Michael Shapiro to fill in the void by creating an original new soundtrack. As the classic film plays on the big screen, he'll conduct his gorgeous and atmospheric score, performed live by the LA Opera Orchestra, making this the ultimate audience experience for a truly iconic film.

 During the transition to sound production, Hollywood studios faced a dilemma: How to export English-language films to lucrative non-English speaking foreign markets. It was easy enough during the silent era—just swap out the title cards—but the spoken word presented a unique challenge. Some studios, such as Universal, chose to make multiple versions of the same film featuring the same story told with different actors speaking their native languages. The most famous example of this approach is the Spanish-language version of Dracula in 1931, not only because it survives intact after being thought lost for decades, but also because it arguably rivals—some would say exceeds—the artistry of its counterpart.
