    Looking to get your October suspense/thriller movie fix? Make your way over to the Reel to see A Quiet Place for just $2 with a student ID. You definitely can't beat those prices (and who doesn't love John Krasinski!?).

    Oct 11-14

    Terror Behind the Walls

    If you're a big fan of being thoroughly spooked, Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary is your next stop. Here, you'll walk through the halls of the former prison which housed famous inmates such as Al Capone. Make sure to go with some trusted friends because this glorified haunted house experience is not for the faint of heart.

    Also make sure to bring student ID for discount prices!
