Celebrate Halloween by watching classic horror flicks at the Harbor Theater

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Muskegon, MI - The Harbor Theater is known for showing cutting-edge films that otherwise wouldn’t have an opportunity to be shown in West Michigan, and for showing movies "on a budget" to the community for as little as $1.00 per admission ticket. Halloween is no exception this year, and the Harbor Theater is pleased to announce two films that will get everyone into the Halloween spirit for only $3.00 per ticket.

The classic (1973) film Exorcist is a story about a teenager who is possessed by a mysterious entity, and whose mother seeks help from two priests. See the extended directors cut with restored picture and remastered sound on October 8th and 9th at 9:30PM.

The classic (1960) film Psycho, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, is a story about a young woman who, after stealing a large sum of money, encounters a young man too long under his mother’s domination.
