Cinevore Studios Presents… Friday Night Fright

A pre-Halloween party for people that are serious about makeup, costumes, and gore.

One of Project Twenty1′s most-memorable and most-demanded venues, the Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum is back again for our Friday Night Party – and it’s going to be bigger than ever! Join some of Philadelphia’s best effects makeup artists and fright-makers in this costume party, held in the hidden jewel of Philadelphia – the Tiberinos’ arts garden. Come dressed as a ghoul, goblin, ghost or other scary sight to win tons of cool prizes (and to mess with the “normals”).

Just a 10-minute walk from the International House Theater, we’ll be leading people to the party directly after the Red Showcase screening. Sure, you can always meet us there, too, but you’ll miss the great photo and video opp of a giant horde of people dressed as monsters walking across the city.

Awards: Best Costume, Best Makeup, Most Frightening

$10 at the Door/$5 if in costume, FREE with ALL-ACCESS PASS
