It’s the first Halloween at L.A.’s recently opened downtown branch of the Ace Hotel, and naturally it’s gonna be killer. (Old-school horror host cackle goes here.) Hollywood Forever outdoor-screeners Cinespia will bring the haunted, old-school, fall-of-Babylon vibes, and FYF will bring the over-the-top dance party, which kicks off with sets by Animal Collective member Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks and Beat Junkie–slash-DJ legend J Rocc. There’s also a showing of a restored print of John Carpenter’s nasty classic Halloween, which should really come to life in the spectacular Ace environs, and then wave after wave of relentless DJs take over the rooftop bar. Costumes are mandatory, but of course you were coming in costume anyway, right? You’re not some kind of anti-Halloween monster, are you?
