Ghostly Greetings from Southern California! It’s Halloween Time at The James and we’re ready to totally own spooky season in Los Angeles. From terrifying chills to good ole’ Halloween fun – there’s nothing like a Hollywood Halloween!
It’s the creepiest and most creative holiday of the year, so we pulled together our must-try spooky activities in The James community and neighborhood:
Halloween Horror Nights 2021 | Halloween Horror Nights is back with a vengeance at Universal Studios Hollywood on select evenings from September 9-October 31. Face nightmarish creatures in sinister scare zones, indulge in outrageous live entertainment and escape to some of the park’s most exhilarating attractions. You’ll need someone to hide behind, somebody to panic with and a brave pal to watch your back. Just as in horror films where the first to wander off meets a terrible fate, there’s one thing to remember at Halloween Horror Nights: Never Go Alone.
Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas – Live with Danny Elfman | See Danny Elfman reprise his role of Jack Skellington for a live performance and screening of The Nightmare Before Christmas at the Banc of California Stadium on Friday, October 29-Sunday, October 31. The concert-meets-movie event is set to bring a costume contest and trick-or-treating, as well as a slate of special guests that includes Ken Page reprising the role of Oogie Boogie and “Weird Al” Yankovic taking on Lock – expect some more splashy guest appearances to be announced soon!

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride | Within the foothills of Midnight Falls, the Witch of the Woods cast a spell to summon the spirits of the underworld to cross over and assimilate into form. The Hayride leads to a thrilling adventure of horrors afflicting the town. Dazed within the spell cast upon them, the Witch commands her army of crops to seek revenge on the people that have cast her out. The Spirit of Halloween comes to life surrounding helpless victims brave enough to board The Hayride! A chilling experience packed with a scare zone, a trick or treat area, the Midnight Mortuary and the Dead-End Dinner – there’s spooky fun for the whole family!
Beetle House LA | Beetle House is a year-round celebration of Halloween with an artistic, thematic atmosphere inspired by horror culture, magic and the artistic, literary and cinematic works of Tim Burton, Alfred Hitchcock, Bram Stoker, Washington Irving, Edgar Allen Poe and many more. Book your reservation for The Poltergeist Feast – a three-course meal including your choice of an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Pick one from each category for a customized, spooky dining experience. Look here for the menu options and tickets!
There’s nothing like the comfort of home after an evening of chills and thrills. After your fill of Halloween delights, retreat home to The James for an evening at the firepit or a glass of wine in the record playing lounge. Get back to the cozy fall vibes with some amazing Halloween memories that’ll last a lifetime!
