Penn Cinema Hosts Halloween Movie and Beer Fest this Weekend



Nothing can stir up Halloween enthusiasm and excitement quite like a few spooky movies.

Luckily, you can catch a whole host of them this week, courtesy of the first annual Movies on Tap: Monsters & Malts Movie Fest. Similar to the Movies on Tap event, which features a local brewery paired with a classic film all for a good cause, this event is three days and includes seven movies, seven breweries and seven charities.

Tickets are on sale for individual movies, and tickets for all seven are available with a Festival Pass (limited quantity available). 100 percent of ticket sales go to charity.
