Underground Atlanta, September 16 – November 6
After a wildly successful run in Marietta, Into the Film is psyched to bring back “Save the Video Store,” an immersive theatrical experience, but this time reimagined as a Y2K-era Horror Experience, just in time for Halloween season.
Created and directed by Erin Stegeman (Fun Size Horror, Once Upon A Time: The Rock Opera, Shame of Thrones), “Save the Video Store 2.0” is described as a combination of campy nostalgia, interactive theater, and escape room. The 90-minute experience thrusts guests into iconic late 90s-00s scary movies as they engage with the cast of employees, compete for prizes and more! The pop up Moviebuster (that’s the name of the show’s titular video store) also includes a themed bar for guests to enjoy nostalgic drinks before and after the show.
“We’re the haunt experience for those that love comedy and campy fun with their scares, which was archetypal to movies of that era”, says Stegeman
The team at Into the Film is no stranger to the interactive theater experience. In 2017, they produced “A Night at the Opera,” an experience which allowed guests to enter the world of 1880s Paris to become part of one of the most famous stories of all time: The Phantom of the Opera.
“We are all massive cinephiles who have been hungry for a new way to experience film, bringing it to life with immersive theater,” said Into the Film co-founders Erik Mihlsten and Alena Geffner-Mihlsten. “With the massive growth of the film industry in Atlanta over the last several years, we believe it’s the perfect location to thrust an audience right into the action at the intersection of film and theater.”
“Save the Video Store” is set to run from Sept 16 – Nov 6, 2022, at the Underground Atlanta.
