    The movies are free and will begin as soon as darkness falls (Muah-ha-ha).

    Grab a costume and get ready to scream! 

    Every Monday in October, you can catch an outdoor screening of a classic horror movie in Crystal City. The series began Oct. 5 with "Pet Semetary."

    The movies are free and will begin as soon as darkness falls (muah-ha-ha). Just grab a blanket and head down to the courtyard on S. Bell Street between 18th and 20th streets in Arlington.

    In between screams, snap a picture of your costume and tag #CrystalScream on Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win $20 to the Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Crystal City. You'll need some chocolate to comfort you after watching these creepy flicks. 

    The movie schedule is below:

    • Oct. 5 - "Pet Semetary"
    • Oct. 12 - "Scream"
    • Oct. 19 - "Poltergeist"
    • Oct. 26 - "Exorcist"

    The series is a partnership between the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) and Vornado/Charles E. Smith.

    "The cooler fall temperatures and earlier sunsets combined with Halloween make for the perfect opportunity for a scary experience," said Crystal City BID CEO/President Angela Fox.
