The second annual event follows on last year’s major hit, which featured frightening creatures, stunt combat scenes, and more (story). All proceeds from the already sold-out shows are donated to children’s charities, and the 2005 event raised $20,000 for BC Children’s Hospital.
The event involves hundreds of volunteers, and promises to be bigger and better this year.
“The Halloween Haunt showcases the talents of many professionals in our industry and gives the public a unique opportunity for a close up look at what we do,” John Smith, executive producer of Stargate SG-1, said. “We all feel strongly about supporting our community and are very pleased to be donating all proceeds to children’s charities.”
“Last year’s three-day event was completely sold out weeks in advance, clearly telling us that we have created an event that is a new ‘must-do’ in Vancouver for the Halloween season,” said Ron Hrynuik, Bridge Studios General Manager and event Co-Producer.
Public events will run October 27 to 29, with special school events for students on October 30 and 31. Learn more at FilmHaunt.com!
