About this Screening

One of the greatest horror films ever made. John Carpenter's Halloween shook audiences upon release in 1978, with our first introduction to the now legendary Mike Myers.

Halloween carved a lasting impact in cinema, with Mike Myers becoming one of the best-known horror characters of all-time. Carpenter's creation was a pioneer in popularising the slasher genre, with the original being followed by several sequels and spin-offs. But as is the way with so many, nothing compares to the original. The tension and suspense still hold viewers captive to this day, in a thriller that set the standard for modern horror films!

The Broadway Halloween Film Festival is the first of many special themed events to compliment our regular Roadshow programme! Our temporary home at Prestwick Academy is bringing the latest cinema releases, all-time classics, and the true magic of film back to South Ayrshire! All proceeds go towards the Broadway's restoration and bringing cinema back to our communities for the foreseeable future. General admission tickets are priced at £7, with an exclusive 25% discount available to all official Broadway members, and the chance to add a donation to the cost of your purchase.

Our ever-changing and expanding concessions menu offers a variety of sweets, popcorn and ice cream at affordable prices for all. The Academy's 300+ seated capacity auditorium, paired with state-of-the-art projection equipment and The Broadway Stereophonic Sound System (and quintessential Broadway showmanship), brings an authentic and professional cinema experience back to Prestwick for the first time in almost half a century. The venue is also fully accessible, with accessible seating able to reserve at no extra cost.

Please note that for The Broadway Halloween Film Festival strict ID checks for age-restricted films will be in operation. Halloween is rated 18, and therefore no one under the age of 18 will be permitted to attend. For additional information please refer to our Admissions Policy.

We also highly encourage costume-wearing and dressing up for the occasion!

With the help of our new partners Indy Cinema Group, and with your incredible support, the greatest Halloween films of all-time are back on the big screen!

Let's get spooky and keep making history together!
