“13 Nights of Fright is a new event for us but horror movies are not,” explains Nancy Crane, vice president of Operations for West Wind Drive-Ins and Public Markets. “In keeping with the spirit of Halloween, we decided to bring back nearly 100 horror films to celebrate the season. We’ll have serious recent films like the ‘Saw’ series and “It” along with kids films like ‘Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’ and ‘Coco.’

Highlights include an Alfred Hitchcock doubleheader (“Psycho,” “The Birds”) on Oct. 22; a double shot of Stephen King (“It,” “It Chapter Two”) on Oct. 26; and an old-school monster-movie tripleheader (“Dracula,” “The Mummy,” “Wolf Man”) on Oct. 27 at all three of the company’s Northern California locations.
