Man, why does Los Angeles get all the cool things?
This Spring, The Desmond will be the home to a one-of-a-kind experience in LA that will feature artistic reinterpretations of worlds of the first chapter in the IT saga, The Shining, Beetlejuice, The Lost Boys, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Dubbed I Like Scary Movies, the multi-sensory installation will be a groundbreaking immersive art installation that is a true celebration of some of the most beloved horror films.
“Come play with us as we take you back to The Shining, where you can “sink” into the infamous carpet from the Overlook hotel, before wandering through Beetlejuice’s graveyard on your way to the Netherworld Waiting Room. Feel the fear as you enter Freddy’s boiler room from A Nightmare on Elm St. and then revisit The Lost Boys on your way to Pennywise’s lair. After all, we all float down here.“
Maximillian, the experiential artist behind many Hollywood studio activations over the years, and creator of I Like Scary Movies, states “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. 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.”

The installation opens April 4 and tickets are only $39. You can pre-order yours today through their website.
