“Jeepers Creepers,” this is grounds for a good “Scream” because Full Moon Cineplex’s screening calendar is stacked full of cult classic scary movies this October.
🔦 The “friendly house of horrors”
We couldn’t dish the movie + dinner features without first talking about what makes Full Moon Cineplex unique. After all, where else could you catch a flick, fill up your stomach, get some fresh ink, and run through a haunted house all under one roof?
That’s right, a trifecta of businesses call the space (3445 Lebanon Pk. Ste. 3, Hermitage) home. Some Nashvillians may know the building as the former location of Courtyard Cinemas, which operated from 1988 until its closing in 2001. The theater sat for sale for 13 years before husband + wife duo Ben and Stacey Dixon purchased it in 2014.
Now, Slaughterhouse — coined Nashville’s “longest-running haunted attraction” — takes over six of the eight auditoriums seasonally. Lone Wolf Tattoo occupies another and dinner booths + traditional theater seating fill the remainder of the space. Full Moon Cineplex brings movie buffs together year-round for cinema classics and, our personal favorite, the month-long showings of horror film flicks.
🎟️ What to expect
Choose from different ticket packages that combine movies with dinner, a haunt, or all three, or stick to the basics with general admission. General admission tickets start at $7 and packages combining all three offerings ring in at $52. Pro tip: Buy your tickets in advance, some showings are already selling out.
