Caution! Ocean Pines to Host “Dracula” Movie Night

Grab onto someone you love and hold on to the edge of your seat because just when you thought it was safe to watch a “spooktacular” movie, Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department announces its scary Halloween Classic Movie Night.

Guests will be able to watch “Dracula” on a blow-up screen at the Ocean Pines Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines, on Friday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.

“Spooky times call for spooky movies,” said Ocean Pines Marketing and Public Relations Director Denise Sawyer. “The ultimate cure of the Halloween Fever is a movie night with family and friends.”

“Dracula” is a 1931 American vampire-horror classic film directed by Tod Browning and starring Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula.

“Elegant eeriness is how I best describe the Halloween classic movie,” said Sawyer. “There is no better vampire movie than the 1931 ‘Dracula.’ Star actor Bela Lugosi is the creepiest of Casanovas.”

This free event, which is open to the public, will feature spirited fun for all ages. Folks would be able to also enjoy popcorn, snacks and drinks, which will be available for purchase. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own food and nonalcoholic drinks.

Additional Halloween fun has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28.  Residents and guests are invited to have a ghoulish good time at this year’s Halloween/Fall Festival. The festival will take from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at White Horse Park, located at 235 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines.

Don’t be a “scaredy cat.” Come dressed in your favorite Halloween costume and enjoy trick-or-treating, carnival games, face painting, pony rides, moon bounces, a haunted hayride, dog and human costume contests and much more at the free festival. The event is open to all ages.
