Penn Cinema Hosts Halloween Movie and Beer Fest this Weekend

Don’t miss the three-day film fest at the Wilmington theatre that kicks off Thursday, Oct. 18.


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.
