Curbed Detroit will dedicate space on the blog once a day from now until 30th of October for Halloween ideas with a Detroit-centered, Curbed'y flair. Curbed will start with today;s suggestion, but we want to hear from you, our readers, so emai your (polite) suggestions to newly appointed Curbed Detroit Editor, Rebecca Golden.
Idea: Attend an (almost) unbearably terrifying movie at the the new location of Cinema Detroit, 4126 Third St. between Willis and Alexandrine. We have Curbed Exclusive photos of the theater's 3rd Street digs. Also, the trailer for a film debuting at Cinema Detroit on Friday, Oct 23. The trailer for Goodnight Mommy, an Austrian horror flick about ten-year-old twins trapped with a strange, bandaged woman they are beginning to doubt is actually their mother. We were to terrified to watch the trailer after hearing on NPR that even the trailer alone was literally (somehow) scary as hell. We're embedding it here, because we know you want to look, but we still sure as hell will not.
