HAPPY NEW YEAR!
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)
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.
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).
