LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - "Halloween Kills" opens at Marcus La Crosse Cinema on Thursday night after a year-long delay kept the 43-year-old franchise from theaters.
"Halloween Kills" is the 12th movie in the "Halloween" franchise. The newest installment is a direct sequel to "Halloween," which premiered in 2018. The film returns the iconic villain, Michael Myers, to the big screen as he and many other characters were absent over the last year.
"We've definitely had a backup of movies that are starting to come out as you see," said James Bryan, General Manager of Marcus La Crosse Cinema. "We have a great slate of movies coming out. I know 'Dune' comes out at the end of this month and then, next month, we have 'Ghostbusters' coming out as well. So that's really exciting."
"Dune" and "Ghostbusters" were both delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Halloween Kills" opens Thursday night at Marcus La Crosse Cinema, with the first showing at 7 p.m.
"Halloween Kills" is intended for a mature audience. However, Marcus La Crosse Cinema offers more features to celebrate the spooky season.
"We also have a family movie, 'Addams Family 2', that's out," continued Bryan, "We're also offering Boo Bingo, so there's an opportunity to win a Boo Soda, and some other fun activities."
