An immersive drive-in Halloween cinema experience is coming to Manchester this October


This October, a brand-new, immersive Halloween experience is coming to Manchester’s EventCity.

Starting on the 12th October, Park N Party, the team behind a series of sell-out drive-in cinema and theatre performances throughout summer, are bringing a jam-packed schedule filled with Halloween classics for both adult and child audiences.

But that’s not all. Viewers can expect an immersive experience as ScareCity will deliver live, socially distanced entertainment safely to guests in their own car.

Before guests are immersed in the full horror experience, visitors will drive through a chilling scare tunnel which sees live actors and unexpected surprises throughout for a truly hair-raising experience.

There’s also a haunted graveyard complete with headstones and a blood-spattered Winnebago for spooky photo opportunities, as well as the opportunity to step inside a haunted house.

The film line-up includes classic Halloween favourites such as The Hills Have Eyes, The Blair Witch Project, The Exorcist, The Conjuring, and The Ring.

More recent hits include Get Out, Us, Crawl, Annabelle Comes Home, It, The Lighthouse, and The Nun.

There’s also a selection of spooky hits for kids including Coraline, Hocus Pocus and Coco, and the midday screenings on Saturdays and Sundays are all child friendly.

Films will be displayed across several large screens, with live actors lurking in the shadows. 

And food and drink will also be available to purchase on-site.

The event is fully compliant with COVID-19 safety guidelines, with a number of precautions in place should you wish to leave your car for a bathroom break. Organisers say there will be plenty of toilets on-site, all of which will only allow one person at a time and will be regularly cleaned down. 

Hand sanitiser will be readily available throughout the location, including within the toilets.

ScareCity will be taking over EventCity, Manchester from 12th October to 1st November 2020. Tickets cost £35 per vehicle.
