Supercinema has announced dates for its upcoming film-inspired costume parties, hosted by the McKittrick Hotel, home of the immersive production Sleep No More. Each event will begin at 10:15pm, following the performance of Sleep No More, when the venue will be transformed into the world of that evening’s celebrated film.

First up will be The Guilty Party on September 17, a celebration of the 1985 cult-classic Clue. The mystery comedy, based on the board game of the same name, stars Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, and Lesley Ann Warren.

Next will be Inferno, three nights of Halloween revelry inspired by Classic Hollywood Movie Monsters, taking place on October 28, 29, and 31.

December 3 will be a celebration of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton’s 1993 macabre holiday classic following Jack Skellington's journey from "Halloween Town" to "Christmas Town."

The McKittrick Hotel will then host a Moulin Rouge!-themed New Year's Eve party on December 31. Directed, produced, and cowritten by Baz Luhrmann, the 2001 jukebox musical stars Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman as a young Scottish writer and the cabaret actress he falls in love with.

Supercinema is a one-of-a-kind nightlife experience told through a cinematic lens, inviting guests to a music-and-live-performance-filled dance party inspired by the world of that month’s film or film series. Each party requires guests arrive in costumes inspired by the film. The evening features scenic installations, pop-up theatrical performances, costumes galore, and an all-night open bar with your ticket.
