Scream Scenes

It’s fright night, so prepare for an evening of spooky and silly stories backdropped by matching cinema projections. Dress up in your scariest horror garb, mingle with fellow ghouls, and listen to a lineup of readings sure to make your hair stand on end. Want to turn the evening into a DIY double-feature? Grab a ticket to Thornbury Picture House’s 6PM screening for a specially selected horror film to set the tone.
