Here’s a guide to where in Nashville you can catch a movie on Halloween.
There are a number of Regal theatres in the city, where you will find a wide selection of movies and high quality facilities. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $7 for matinee (before 3pm), $6.25 for children and seniors, and $8 for students and military. Horror films worth looking out for would be Saw IV, Zombieland, Sorority Row and Cirque De Freak: the Vampire’s Assistant, all of which would keep to the theme of the night.

For a more traditional Nashville movie experience I’d recommend trying The Belcourt Theatre. It is an independently owned and operated movie theatre, yet is very unpretentious when it comes to indie cinemas and an important part of the community. Every Halloween they show the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a musical of dramatic proportions. You should also consider dressing up as one of the characters for the occasion, which indeed adds something special to the atmosphere. Tickets are $10 and for over-18s only, with showings on 30th October and 31st October at Midnight.

Another option is to head to Vanderbilt University, where International Lens Film Series will be presenting Nosferatu in the Saratt Cinema. This is a classic German vampire film made in 1922, and is based on a rather horrific vampire incarnation called Graf Orlok. It is a silent film, yet “An original musical score will be performed LIVE by the Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra”. Entrance is free to everyone and it opens up at 7pm on 31st October.

‘Of course, a fun alternative would be to host your own movie night in Nashville. Perhaps you could rent out an old disused cinema, and project a classic horror movie for people to gather and enjoy. I hope it’s an exciting night for you all either way.
