How would you like to watch Candyman at the University of Illinois Chicago? Let's take it a step further with the actual classroom where Trevor (Xander Berkeley) lectures on modern urban folklore. Kenny Caperton's ongoing film series, On Set Cinema, immerses fans in moviegoing experiences like no other. From Halloween at Michael Myer's house to The Shining at The Overlook, and The Faculty at the high school where the whole alien invasion went down, Caperton has been delivering wonderfully unique experiences. On Set Cinema's latest endeavor is sure to be equally as unique as Bernard Rose's 1992 modern horror classic screens on the university campus.

This could be you sitting in this lecture hall!

Chicago, Illinois • University of Illinois Chicago Lecture Hall (aka Trevor's Classroom)

I am the writing on the wall, the whisper in the classroom. Without these things, I am nothing. Come with me... join ON SET CINEMA and become immortal on Saturday, December 9th at the University of Illinois Chicago for a very special screening of one of the most frightening horror films of all time ...CANDYMAN (1992)!

I’ll be showing the movie inside the actual classroom where Trevor (Xander Berkeley) gives his lecture on modern urban folklore and Helen (Virginia Madsen) isn't happy about it. The soundtrack will be playing, everyone attending will get free candy as they enter the lecture hall and just before the movie plays, I'll hold up a mirror and we'll all say together... “Candyman,” “Candyman,” “Candyman,” “Candyman” ...”CANDYMAN”!

Location: University of Illinois Chicago - 1200 W Harrison St, Chicago, IL 60607
• Date / Time: Saturday, December 9, 2023 / 7:00pm (movie starts at 8:00pm)
• Admission: $30.00

And in case you need a little refresher on the synopsis:

Skeptical graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) befriends Anne-Marie McCoy (Vanessa Williams) while researching superstitions in a housing project on Chicago's Near North Side. From Anne-Marie, Helen learns about the Candyman (Tony Todd), a knife-wielding figure of urban legend that some of her neighbors believe to be responsible for a recent murder. After a mysterious man matching the Candyman's description begins stalking her, Helen comes to fear that the legend may be all too real.
