The Light House Cinema Are Screening the Most Halloweeny Film You Can Think Of!
Now a Halloween event a little closer to your student accommodation, you can catch some spine-chilling scenes just down the street at The Light House Cinema in Smithfield! Starting on the 19th of October, they will be showing the Spooktacular screening of “Halloween” (2018), every day and night, and its really something you don’t want to miss, especially since its so close you can just run up the road and hide under your sheets right after!
This sequel to its 1978 predecessor shows Jamie Lee Curtis (you might remember her from Freaky Friday or Christmas with the Kranks, its more your era!!) reprising her role as Laurie Strode once again, which means this really is the only movie you NEED to see right now… unless you haven’t seen the original, then we suggest you watch that first!!
