A Bewitching Horror Drive-In Is Creeping Into Town This Halloween & It’s Set To Be A Real Fright Fest

Secret Manchester Secret Manchester


An epic scare-fest is creeping into town!

Horror fans rejoice! Because an incredibly spooky al fresco cinema experience is set to creep into town, and it’s set to be a real fright. Screening from October 1st, Park N Party is opening up the gates to the ScareCity Horror Drive-In at SecretCity, an immersive, open-air experience featuring performances from live actors and some of the most terrifying films. The organisers have transformed Soccerdome in Trafford and have a jam-packed schedule filled with scary classics for audiences to enjoy… or have you on the edge of your seat.

But, beware, as this is no ordinary cinema experience. As you head towards the screens to watch your favourite horror film, you will face a whole lotta horror before the film has even begun, as you are led into a chilling scare tunnel. Prepare to be scared as you see live actors creep towards you, as well as lots of unexpected surprises that are bound to have you jumping out of your skin.

But the unexpected may not end after that truly hair-raising experience at SecretCity. Sit back, chill out (if you dare!) and watch a spooky film from the comfort of your seat, or behind it. You can choose from cult favourites including The Nun and Get Out alongside newer hits such as A Quiet Place Part II – which will all be displayed across several large screens with live actors lurking in the shadows.

Once you’ve recovered from your voluntary fright, you can kick back and relax with a refreshing drink at SecretCity’s incredible new bar – which boasts ample al fresco seating, cold beers (among other tasty drinks) and tasty food such as burgers and loaded fries.

Boasting a witchy theme this year, guests will be spooked and startled by the freaky atmosphere cast on the drive-in, with a brand new look in store for fans who got the chance to experience ScareCity last Halloween. If that wasn’t all, there’ll also be plenty of photo-opps to show off the spooky vibes on the ‘gram, including the drive-in tunnel, the scare zone, a ritual area, an abandoned gas station, and even an eery graveyard.

The first screenings at ScareCity begin on October 1st and will run right until Halloween on October 31st. The launch weekend has some fantastic films in store for us, too, including The Wretched, Paranorman and A Quiet Place. Better bring something (or someone) to hide behind!
