Sponsors / Huntsman

Celebrate Halloween at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion with a movie night under the stars!

Families are encouraged to come in costume for a screening of Shrek on the venue’s large LED screens. Mezzanine and lawn seating are FREE. Tickets for GA orchestra seating are $10 each and include unlimited popcorn. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for the event sponsored by Woodforest National Bank. Please note popcorn is not included with lawn and mezzanine seating; however, lawn chairs will be provided for free.

Everyone is encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costume for a chance to walk on stage during the concert. The first 100 boys and girls to check in at Hocus Pocus Central in the North Plaza, fully costumed, get the chance to march in the Goblin Parade. Wristbands are required to participate in the Goblin Parade.

Pre-movie activities start at 5:30 p.m. and include making a swamp monster at The Pavilion Partners Arts & Crafts booth, photo opportunities with costumed characters and a variety of spooktacular games in the North Plaza. Guests will also get the opportunity to decorate and take home a pumpkin (while supplies last) courtesy of H-E-B.

Through offering events such as movie night, The Pavilion is able to fulfill its mission of being a catalyst for new audiences and enhancing appreciation for the arts. In the movie, Shrek shares his own thoughts on ogres and compares them to onions because they have layers, or depths of emotion, that are revealed over time. The performing arts encourage children to explore their own layers of complex emotions, further expanding their imagination and helping them develop an individual voice. The unique connection between the critically-acclaimed movie and the power of the performing arts makes it an ideal opportunity for The Pavilion to achieve its mission in a family-friendly and fun way.
