Drive-In movies coming to Cultura Beer Garden just in time for Halloween

However, local nonprofit Laredo Film Society is doing all it can to keep the love of cinema alive in Laredo.

In partnership with Cultura Beer Garden, the organization is hosting a series of drive-in movies designed to give locals a safe, movie-going experience amid restrictions in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

In celebration of the Halloween season, the movies selected for the series are all designed to get Laredoans in a spooky mood.

On Halloween night, the group will screen cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”.  The 1975 musical comedy horror film stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick and is a musical tribute to the campy horror and science fiction B movies that populated theaters from the 30s to the 60s. The film’s plot centers around a young couple whose car breaks down, leading them to the wild world of Dr. Frank-n-Furter and company.

In addition to the film screening, Cultura’s food trucks will be in full operation, with many of the trucks offering special movie snacks for the locals in attendance. Note though, that outside food and drinks will be prohibited.

Tickets start at $10 for al fresco seating and are available to purchase at laredofilm.org/tickets. Tickets for the Halloween night screening will go on sale at

The B-movie maestro William Castle lards “House on Haunted Hill” with one high-concept hook after another: A millionaire (Vincent Price) offers a $10,000 prize for anyone who can survive his “haunted house” party, complete with loaded pistols issued to guests in miniature coffins, and a burbling vat of acid on site. Part chiller, part whodunit, the film is like witnessing a deliciously macabre parlor game.

Four people are summoned to a creepy mansion for a paranormal investigation, but the house itself is the star — all creaky floorboards, pulsating walls and a doorknob turning back and forth.

There are haunted house movies of greater psychological complexity and invention, but “The Haunting” remains the gold standard.

Fresh from a stay in a mental institution, Jessica (Zohra Lampert) seeks refuge at an old Connecticut farmhouse, which happens to be the site where a woman drowned on her wedding day in 1880. As she, her husband, their friend, and a mysterious drifter settle into the place, the bizarre events that follow — and the sinister whispers and tension between the conspiratorial townspeople (all wearing bandages) and these hippie interlocutors — loosen Jessica’s tenuous grip on her sanity.

“The Belasco House” was named after an unspeakably perverse, six-foot-five millionaire who indulged in every vice imaginable, running the gamut from alcoholism and heroin addiction to incest, necrophilia, bestiality and cannibalism. “Bad vibes”
