As the hot Oklahoma City summer slowly transitions to humid fall, it’s finally time to get in the spooky spirit, take out our best freaky costumes and carve some creepy pumpkins. There’s many reasons to love Halloween, whether it’s for the fun and scary costumes, trick or treating or the fun parties. There’s no denying that October is a special time of year, where we connect with our dark side and embrace horror and mystery. This season, you can add a new plan to your spooky traditions and celebrate Halloween at an enchanting yet unsettling Candlelight concert, dedicated to all things scary.
Candlelight is bringing the haunting melodies of The Addams Family, Psycho, Halloween and Ghostbusters to the former Old Hollywood movie theater, Yale Theater. As you sit in a beautiful vintage venue, illuminated only by flickering candles, you’ll fall under the spell of magical renditions of these classics and more. It will be an evening you won’t want to miss.
The popular Candlelight series invites you to spend the spookiest time of year in Oklahoma City listening to iconic Halloween songs that have become synonymous with the holiday. Whether it’s soundtracks from some of the most popular horror movies or spine-tingling songs and compositions, these haunting tunes send shivers down your spine.
For instance, the screeching violins of the Psycho theme composed by Bernard Herrmann, or the chilling piano notes from John Carpenter’s Halloween theme, these Halloween classics possess an eerie power that have haunted our nightmares since their release. Played masterfully by Listeso String Quartet, you’ll revisit some of your darkest thoughts and most terrifying movie scenes as you’re enveloped in the warm glow of candlelight at Yale Theater.
You can share this unique Candlelight concert with a loved one or your friends, or you can even go on your own, that is, if you dare. This Halloween, there are two performances taking place on each evening, at 6:00pm and 8:30pm. The concerts last 60 minutes and the doors open 60 minutes prior to the start of the show.
