Cary hosts Halloween movie series this week

Posted October 21, 2014

A Reel-ly Scary Cary, the Halloween movie series with a kid-friendly option, is this week at Koka Booth Amphitheater.

The series features a couple of R-rated flicks that are definitely not suited for kids. But, on Friday, the outdoor amphitheater will feature the G-rated "Monsters University." 

WRAL Weather has the forecast as cool, but clear during the series. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to bundle up with some hot chocolate for an outdoor movie.

Koka Booth also will have a haunted house that's best for 13 and up. Tickets to the movie and one trip through the haunted house are $10 for ages 13 and up, and free for ages 12 and under. If visitors want to go through the haunted house more than once, tickets are $2.

Gates open at 6 p.m. The haunted house is open from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. The film starts at 8 p.m. Here's the schedule: 

Thursday, Oct 23: Pet Sematary, rated R
Friday, Oct. 24: Monsters University, rated G
Saturday, Oct. 25: The Conjuring, rated R

Again, perhaps obviously, Thursday's and Saturday's movies are not young kid friendly, but they might be great fun for families with teenagers. 

Picnics are allowed, including beer and wine. Food and beverage stands also will be open. You're also welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets.

    The Town of Cary spends 6 million tax payer dollars for a theater and then goes to Koka Booth Amphitheater to show a Halloween series. Some people have no business sense.
