As you may have noticed on social media for the past month or so, residents of – and visitors to – Los Angeles have been having a ridiculous amount of fun exploring the I Like Scary Movies art installation; and if you somehow haven’t found the time to visit it yet, then you’re in luck as it’s being extended through Sunday, July 14th!
I Like Scary Movies is the experience that all scary movie fans have been dreaming of – a groundbreaking participatory art installation that is a true celebration of some of the most beloved horror films. There are five multi-room exhibits, and their themes are as follows: The Shining, Beetlejuice, Stephen King’s It, The Lost Boys, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. For an in-depth look at the Brainwaves crew’s experience at the exhibit, click here for Uncle Creepy’s recap.
WAIT… there’s even more good news! VERY exclusive, VERY limited items have been added to the gift shop. Custom lunchbox purses straight from the Netherworld along with everyone’s favorite son of a 100 maniacs, an absolute must-have for fans of Beetlejuice and Freddy Krueger! What better place to store your Zagnuts and bladed gloves? There are also limited edition Funko Pops of Jack Torrance! These little guys move faster than an axe through a bathroom door so don’t wait too long to visit!
Get your tickets here! It is worth your time; your money; and, if need be, your travel time.
I Like Scary Movies is brought to life by Maximillian, the experiential artist behind many Hollywood studio activations over the years. “Our goal was to create an experience where fans could take their time to engage with the fantastical worlds of scary movies that have shaped their fandom,” says Maximillian. “We want them to be able to take a deep creative dive into some of their favorite movies in a way that is fun, engaging, artistic, and memorable, allowing them to really explore and enjoy the thrill of it all. The Warner Bros. Consumer Products team has been incredibly supportive of our vision, and we can’t wait for fans to experience it.”
