Scott House Social Cinema: Halloween Edition
Wednesday 30th October
Halloween doesn’t have to be about ghosts, ghouls and nightmarish nights. Scott House Social Cinema are hosting an especially spooky showing at The Old Crown of cult classic Rosemary’s Baby. Roman Polanski’s defining film will be shown outdoors in the dark of the night to really set the scene for this psychological thriller. Take a seat, bring a blanket and get yourself one of The Crown’s deliciously devilish Bloody Mary's because things are about to get scary. The night will be themed around ghoulish eek chic and 60’s psychedelia, so it’s all free love and freak out for the eve of Halloween. Plus with table service, music before and after the show all only £7, Scott House Social Cinema have provided you with the perfect haunted hideaway to get your Halloween going.
