GHOULA has many great things planned for the upcoming year.

But first, let’s take a last look back at 2011.

SPIRITS with SPIRITS continued its monthly meetings, visiting 11 new haunted restaurants/bars (and one gallery) in the Los Angeles area. Our October meet-up was at the world famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip with unprecedented access to the infamous haunted basement. Also in October, the LA Weekly declared (in their “Best of LA” issue) SPIRITS with SPIRITS and GHOULA was “The best weirdo tour of LA.” (To revisit the 2011 “SPIRITS with SPIRITS” locations see below)

Last Year, GHOULA continued its “REAL GHOSTS with REEL GHOSTS.” As a way to celebrate “Tinsel Town’s” film history and Hollywood’s haunted history, anytime a movie about ghosts was shown in a haunted local theater, the details were posted on this site.

We also brought back our “Haunted Films in Haunted Places” film series in October. In a partnership with the Echo Park Film Center’s Filmmobile, for a second year, we screened different movies with “haunted” in their titles in actual haunted locations that corresponded thematically with that film.

And speaking of movie events, GHOULA sponsored the “EMERGO” for a screening of “House on Haunted Hill” at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica. “EMERGO” was a 1950’s gimmick that promised an actual ghost leaping of the screen and into the Auditorium (to see pictures of our EMERGO…)
We also celebrated the visual arts in February with a GHOULA sponsored art show featuring paintings of haunted places. The exhibition was held at the Studio for SOCAL History.

2011 was a great year for GHOULA, and judging from the surprises that are in the works, 2012 will be even better (at least until the world ends in December).
