Organized by The Compassion Building charity, the haunted house attraction is divided into a kid-safe feature on two afternoons, and a "frightening" version for an older crowd on two nights.
The theater is located at 112 West Ave.
The Haunted Theater will be open from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27 and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28. Admission is "free" with the donation of a canned food or non-perishable food item. The event is being held to collect food for next month's community Thanksgiving meal for the elderly.
Children are invited to wear a costume to the afternoon events. There will be a costume contest. The group will also be selling hot dog plates for $4.
The Haunted Theater will also be open 9 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Oct. 26 and 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Oct. 27.
Admission is $8 per person for the nighttime attractions. The organizers are advising that this event is not intended for young children.
The charity is promising a frightening experience.
From the press release:
Prepare to be petrified.
If pitch-black, tightly enclosed places make you anxious ... If the sight of gushing blood and mutilated appendages
horrifies you ... If the thought of a freakish monstrosity wrapping its slimy hands around your throat terrifies you,
Because you won't make it through the first room of this Haunted Theater!
