Some of Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema’s most iconic scary movies will serve as the inspiration for a new multi-sensory art installation coming to Los Angeles beginning April 4.
The “I Like Scary Movies” experience features immersive artistic reinterpretations of It: Chapter One, The Shining, Beetlejuice, The Lost Boys and A Nightmare on Elm Street, and will take place at The Desmond, 5514 Wilshire Blvd.
Fans will have the chance to interact and enjoy the films in a new way with a variety of photo opportunities. Fans will go back to The Shining and “sink” into the infamous carpet from the Overlook hotel, before wandering through Beetlejuice’s graveyard on their way to the Netherworld Waiting Room. They can enter Freddy’s boiler room from A Nightmare on Elm Street and then revisit The Lost Boys on their way to Pennywise’s lair.
The exhibit is brought to life by Maximillian, the experiential artist behind many Hollywood studio activations over the years.
“Our goal was to create an experience where fans could take their time to engage with the fantastical worlds of scary movies that have shaped their fandom,” Maximillian said. “We want them to be able to take a deep creative dive into some of their favorite movies in a way that is fun, engaging, artistic, and memorable, allowing them to really explore and enjoy the thrill of it all. The Warner Bros. Consumer Products team has been incredibly supportive of our vision and we can’t wait for fans to experience it.”
Maximillian has recently orchestrated a wide range of national activations on behalf of his clientele, including the La La Land Aerial Dancers at City Hall, the drone lightshow at Dodger Stadium for Wonder Woman, and the Hollywood Bowl’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory live-to-film performance.
Tickets to the “I Like Scary Movies” are $39 and available at Ilikescarymoviesexperience.com.
