7 p.m. to 10 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)
Indiana Landmarks Center Grand Hall

At Not-So Silent Halloween, you get scary movies, scary music, scary lighting, a costume contest with cash prizes, and adult beverages in the Grand Hall at Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue in Indianapolis, a restored and repurposed nineteenth-century church.

Doors and cash bar open at 6:30 p.m. You’ll experience classic organ scary music beginning at 7:00 p.m. and spooky special lighting effects that make the Grand Hall an eerie pre-Halloween destination. Frightful Sammy Terry emcees the evening, with stage presentations, lots of audience participation activities, and photo ops.

The 1955 cult classic Bride of the Monster, starring Bela Lugosi and directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr., sets the tone for an evening of campy horror fun. Along with the main feature, concert organist Mark Herman will conjure up dramatic musical scores to accompany a selection of early silent shorts.

Bride of the Monster still

To compete for a cash prize in our Halloween costume contest, dress as your favorite classic movie monster. We’ll award prizes to the best classic monster, the best original monster and the best creepy couple (think Frankenstein’s monster and his bride, Morticia and Gomez, King Kong and Ann Darrow, Janet and Brad). Work on presentation because you’ll parade yourself across the stage in style for crowd reaction and judges’ view.

The show begins at 7 p.m. and the event ends around 10:00 p.m.—plenty of time to head to a club, bar or another party in your Halloween disguise.

Tickets to Not-So Silent Halloween cost $18/general public, $15/Indiana Landmarks member, and may be purchased using the form below, online at, at the door, or by calling 317-639-4534.
