A Nightmare on Franklin Street 2019
Tampa’s most historic – and most haunted – movie palace presents 14 nights of petrifying programming on Oct. 18-31 for everyone from hard-core horror fans to the gentlest ghosts & goblins, including classic horror movies, family-friendly films, ghost tours, eerie live events and some spooky special guests!
A Nightmare on Franklin Street 2019 is presented by Voodo Ranger and J.J. Taylor Distributing Florida, Inc. Promotional consideration is provided by Spooky Empire.
With more than two dozen spooky classics being screened in less than two weeks, A Nightmare on Franklin Street – now in its 7th year – remains the premiere Halloween film and event series in the Tampa Bay area. No matter how you like to get scared, we have movies on the schedule for you: cult classics, family favorites, big-budget blow-outs, no-budget B-movie disasters, special presentations with live guests (**cough** BARRY BOSTWICK **cough**), and everything in between!
GHOST TOURS & PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIVE EXPERIENCE
Who was the man in seat 308? Where did Robert Lanier tear his final ticket? Why does Fink Finley continue to roam the balcony? And what has led to Tampa Theatre being known as one of the most haunted buildings in town? Learn the Theatre’s secrets and stories with a “balcony to backstage” tour that will focus on the historic movie palace’s ghostly guests, preternatural patrons and eternal employees. NEW THIS YEAR, Go beyond the stories and spend some time investigating these supernatural claims for yourself with the new Paranormal Investigation Experience add-on!
Seeing spirits on the silver screen and facing filmed frights is nice and all, but what if you’re in the mood for something a little more… corporeal? This year, A Nightmare on Franklin Street brings you – for the first time ever – two LIVE spine-chilling shows, a special evening of scary stories, and several opportunities to stop by for drink specials and get to know your fellow ghouls with PAUSE-O-Ween Happy Hours!
