It’s finally here: the month we’ve all been waiting for. Sure, Halloween itself might only be one day, but that doesn’t mean we can’t party like poltergeists all month long. We’ve rounded up Honolulu’s best Halloween events for your guide to a hauntingly good October.
Hitchcocktober at Consolidated Theatres
Nothing says Halloween like rewatching some of Alfred Hitchcock’s most iconic films. (Psycho still makes us nervous in the shower.) Consolidated Theatres will be showing special screenings of North by Northwest, Notorious, Vertigo, Rebecca and Psycho every Tuesday at Kāhala Mall throughout October, with a double screening of Psycho at Kāhala and ‘Ōlino Theatres on Halloween. Talk about a fright night.
Kāhala: 4211 Wai‘alae Ave.; ‘Ōlino: 91-5431 Kapolei Parkway, #600, Kapolei (Kapolei on Halloween night only); $10, Tuesdays at 7 p.m., consolidatedtheatres.com/oahu
Ghouls ’N’ Gamblin’
Feelin’ lucky? Come in character to the Elite Parking Foundation’s casino night for your chance to win $500 in the costume contest, a trip for two to Las Vegas in the prize drawing and more. This year, proceeds from entrance tickets, casino and alcohol sales will benefit the Special Olympics of Hawai‘i and the Boys & Girls Club of Hawai‘i.
Pōmaika‘i Ballrooms, 735 ‘Iwilei Road, $25 presale, $35 at the door, 6–11 p.m., eventbrite.com
Tim Burton Film Festival

Tim Burton’s films don’t all take place around Halloween, but they’re still creepy enough to get you in the spooky mood. Here’s your chance to see Beetlejuice, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Edward Scissorhands and Corpse Bride on the big screen in a (supposedly) haunted theater.
Hawai‘i Theatre, $7–$12, hawaiitheatre.com
The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Hosted by Tita Tisling and Cast
Let’s do the time-warp again! Instead of watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show at home for the billionth time, experience the cult classic on a monster-size movie screen. This fully interactive show is accompanied by a full cast of characters and gives you the chance to shout and dance in your seats (and even dress up as your favorite characters. Dibs on Frank N. Furter!). Doors open an hour before start time for cocktails, movie snacks, props and more.
The Arts at Marks Garage, 1159 Nu‘uanu Ave., Oct. 26 and 27 at 8 p.m., Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. and midnight, October 31 at 8 p.m., $20 advance tickets, $25 at the door, eventbrite.com
Art After Dark: Kings & Queens
Calling all scream queens and kings of horror: Come spend the evening with Halloween royalty at the Halloween edition of Honolulu Museum of Art’s Art After Dark. Get down to spooky sounds from King DJ Revise and Queen DJ Tittahbyte, sip on frightfully good cocktails at the iichiko bar and enter the costume contest for your chance to be officially crowned king or queen of the Halloween ball.
Honolulu Museum of Art, 900 S. Beretania St., free for museum members, $25 general admission, 6–9 p.m., honolulumuseum.org/events/art_after_dark/16501-kings_queens
