Halloween/Horror Trivia Night at The Station – Thursday, October 21st

Head to The Station (in costume if you dare!!) from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for a night of spoooooky trivia about things Halloween-related, and likely many, many horror film questions!

As always we will have 40 questions filled with pictures, video clips, songs, and traditional style questions. It will probably lean pretty heavily into horror films given the season of Halloween.

Wicked Awesome Food Truck will be in tow with delicious treats and a spookily themed menu to keep you warm!

Family Movie Night – Hotel Transylvania – Tuesday, October 26th 

Families will have a frightfully good time during a special showing of Hotel Transylvania at the Davie County Public Library on Tuesday, October 26th, beginning at 6:00 p.m. 

More than a century ago, a grieving Dracula decided to build a human-proof castle called HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, where monsters could stay and — more importantly — he could raise his half-vampire, half-human daughter Mavis without exposing her to the danger of humans. Fast forward to the present day, and Mavis is turning 118 (but looks 18), and “Drac” has planned a huge birthday celebration. As the hotel fills with Mavis’ many monster aunties and uncles — like werewolf Wayne Frankenstein, Mummy Griffin, and the Invisible Man — an unexpected visitor arrives in the form of 21-year-old Jonathan, a solo backpacker who somehow stumbles across the supposedly untraceable castle. Not wanting to alarm his guests, Drac puts Jonathan in costume and forces him to pretend that he’s Frankenstein’s younger cousin. What Dracula doesn’t count on is Mavis and Jonathan falling for each other. Rated PG
