Screen Notorious Hotel Horror Flicks in a Hotel Setting this Halloween Season
with Madhouse Movie Weekend at Hotel Erwin
Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining on Friday, Oct. 20
Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho on Saturday, Oct. 21
Bates Motel… Overlook Hotel… Hotel Erw– whoa, easy there! Two of the most infamous psychological horror films of all time are checking in at Hotel Erwin this Halloween season as the Venice Beach hotel introduces Madhouse Movie Weekend. Twisting the plot of popular public screenings, the landmark hotel is doubling down on two legendary (and completely fictional) hotel happenings gone horribly wrong. The two-part ticketed series is free to attend and begins Friday, Oct. 20 with a showing of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, then goes all in on Saturday, Oct. 21 with Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. It’s an insane hotel pairing – one that only Hotel Erwin is crazy enough to pull off.
These cinematic scenes of questionable sanity will consume Larry’s Loft – Hotel Erwin’s 5th floor event space featuring dramatic artwork by local icon Larry Bell. Viewers can comfortably settle into lounge seating and enjoy a theatrically-themed cocktail menu and snacks from the loft’s bar. Doors open at 7:00pm with the screenings beginning at 8:00pm, with limited tickets available via Eventbrite. Dinner at the hotel’s Barlo Kitchen + Cocktails makes for a strategic stop beforehand with happy hour from 5 – 7pm. After the film, move it on up to High Rooftop Lounge for a rooftop cocktail encore.
Tall ceilings, abundant natural light and flexible room layouts make Larry’s Loft ideal for not only for scary films, but also cocktail parties, big boardroom meetings and movie screenings. The space comes in at 1,100 square feet and includes access to three step-out balconies.
