Last year the folks over at Blumhouse Productions created The Blumhouse Of Horrors. It was an amalgam of the companies films all wrapped up into one scary as hell live event. This year they plan on raising the bar with The Purge: Fear The Night. Read on for the details and how to check it out!
Blumhouse Productions, the multi-media production company behind highly successful movies like the Paranormal Activity franchise, Sinister, Insidious and The Purge, announced today that they’ll once again takes over the historic Variety Arts Theater in downtown Los Angeles this Halloween season, introducing an all-new, immersive live experience.
This year, starting Sept. 27, Blumhouse invites horror fans to experience The Purge: Fear the Night, inspired by the backstory to the feature film.
In this new type of horror-theater, guests become “delegates” to the annual convention of the New Founding Fathers, the dystopian governing party of a near-future America, in which all crime is legal once a year for 12 hours.
“We’re building on what we learned and taking it to the next level,” Blum said. “This experience goes way beyond theater or movies or even haunted houses – it’s a full night of entertainment that lets people explore all six floors of this incredible building on their own, and suffer the consequences of their decisions.”
To create The Purge: Fear the Night, Blum has teamed with directors Josh Randall and Kristjan Thor, founders and creators of the phenomenally successful Blackout haunted house in New York and L.A.
Once delegates are inside, their experience begins in the grand theater of the New Founding Fathers Headquarters. There, they will participate in the annual Founder’s Convention – which is held each year on Purge Night. But delegates will quickly discover that not all Americans believe in the Purge, and that the intense opposition can have frightening, even deadly, consequences.
As they explore, delegates may find themselves complicit in the shocking acts undertaken by a warped government … directly threatened by hostile dissenters … or intrigued by the mysterious lives of elected officials. Politicians, patriots, dissidents and traitors will directly engage delegates, who will be encouraged to interact with their surroundings and take their own time discovering the long-hidden, carefully guarded secrets of Purge Night and the New Founding Fathers of America.
Tickets to the six-week exclusive run of The Purge: Fear the Night are limited in supply to preserve the guest experience. The length of a visit is up to each guest, but is expected to last between 90 minutes and 2½ hours.
Admission to The Purge: Fear the Night starts at $65, and is open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Tickets will be distributed on a timed-entry basis, and are available beginning today at www.purgelive.com. Tickets will also be available at the box office of the 89-year-old Variety Arts Theater, located at 940 S. Figueroa St., on a space-available basis.
