Lovers of Halloween and all things weird gathered at PhilaMOCA on Friday for the Mausoleum Rooftop Spooktacular, an outdoor film screening featuring family-friendly Halloween TV specials, commercials, and shorts from the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s. The Callowhill-based theater and art space is known for their unconventional events.
Attendees enjoyed complimentary s’mores station in addition to nighttime views of the Center City skyline from the corner of 12th and Spring Garden streets. PhilaMOCA director and curator Eric Bresler was the mind behind the screening.
“We’ve done a lot of compilation programs in the past and we did one other rooftop screening last summer and that went really well,” Bresler said. “The goal of this was to try to capture that feeling of Halloween that we all had as youths.”
