BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Still in search of how to celebrate Halloween 2020? What if you could have your own private, spooky watch party at Cinemark Perkins Rowe, or another Cinemark location near you? On Oct. 9 only, movie buffs will get the chance during a special giveaway.
“Private watch parties have quickly become a moviegoer favorite, offering customers an exclusively immersive cinematic experience with a group they trust,” said chief marketing officer Wanda Gierhart-Fearing.
The Halloween giveaway is no trick. You may want to park yourself in front of your desktop or download the Cinemark app in advance. The giveaway begins at 10:31 a.m. CT and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Moviegoers hoping to grab the ‘monster of a deal’ must go to their individual theatre page on the Cinemark website or app, and select any ‘Private Watch Party’ showtime for the day of Oct. 31. The first 1,000 individuals to check out with a Halloween Private Watch Party will do so for free.
For the special Oct. 31 promotion, contest entrants may choose from a list of popular Halloween flicks including: Beetlejuice, Hocus Pocus, Coco, Nightmare Before Christmas, Halloween (2018), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), The Addams Family (2019) and The Exorcist: The Version You’ve Never Seen Before (2000).
Winning families are encouraged to come dressed in their Halloween costumes on Oct. 31, while adhering to all local Covid-19 safety regulations. Moviegoers can also treat themselves to scary good pricing on their favorite concessions including $5 large popcorn, $3.50 large fountain drink or ICEE and $2.50 candy.
From Oct. 29 through Nov. 1, all candy will be buy-one-get-one free at the $2.50 price. Cinemark Movie Club members can save even more with their standard 20 percent discount on concessions.
At any time, movie lovers can choose to rent an entire auditorium for up to 20 personal guests to watch a film of their choice. Standard pricing begins at $99 with no minimum concession purchase.
