It’s the first weekend in October, so you know what that means: people everywhere are starting to watch horror movies non-stop. No admittedly there are a number of people who already do this on a daily basis (most of us here fall into that set), but now is when the average lookie-loos get in on the act too. Thankfully, if you live in the Kansas City area (where we are based), there are a few places that can help you out! Take a look below at some wonderful offerings at a couple of the best specialty theaters in the area.
Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet
