ON SET CINEMA

ON SET CINEMA is an ongoing film series that takes fandom a step further with rare movie screenings of cult favorites and horror classics at their actual filming locations. Created by Kenny Caperton, who lives in a life-size replica of Michael Myers’ house from John Carpenter’s original Halloween.

We all know there's only so close you can get to a movie when you're watching it at home from the couch …but what if you could step into the screen for a moment? Watch movies like BeetlejuiceIt Follows, The Blob and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre at the actual spots where a lot of the action takes place - whether that’s inside a small town department store where Sarah Michelle Gellar ran for her life in I Know What You Did Last Summer or at a California mansion where Sidney Prescott and Billy Loomis face off during the climax of Scream, ON SET CINEMA takes you there!

Kingsland, Texas • Grand Central Café (aka The Texas Chain Saw Massacre House)

Who will survive On Set Cinema: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and what will be left of them? Join us at one of the most iconic horror movie locations of all time …The Texas Chain Saw Massacre house! Some of the most memorable and horrifying scenes in horror film history took place inside this house - on Sunday, December 6 and Monday, December 7, 2020, a limited number of fans (ONLY 10 TOTAL EACH NIGHT) will get to not only hang out and watch Texas Chain Saw inside the house, but will also get to stay all night inside this iconic location! This is the first time fans have ever been presented with this opportunity!!

OSC will be clearing out Grand Central Café for the coolest horror slumber party ever! I will be setting up a TV inside the room where the infamous dining room scene took place and we’ll have a Texas Chain Saw-a-thon all night long! …we can watch the original on repeat, or the entire series from start to finish …OR just skip everything and watch The Next Generation over and over again. Fans will be able to hang out and sleep wherever they want inside the house …in the hallway where we first see Leatherface emerge from the doorway and smash Kirk in the head with the sledgehammer, or in the room that was filled with bones and chicken feathers discovered by Pam just before she gets snatched up and hung on the hook, or even upstairs where Sally finds Grandpa in the rocking chair. There will also be games (horror games, board games, video games, etc) and of course a BBQ dinner with headcheese on the side! So fill up your chainsaws and get ready to join the family!

SATURDAY, JULY 17, 2021: CHILDREN OF THE CORN

Whiting, Iowa • The Town of Gatlin

ON SET CINEMA heads to the Midwest to the small town of Gatlin (aka Whiting, Iowa) on July 17, 2021 to join He Who Walks Behind The Rows for a very special screening of Stephen King’s CHILDREN OF THE CORN. The town of Whiting will be blocking off the streets and we will be showing the movie outside in front of the infamous flagpole, which is still standing after all these years! The flagpole is located in the heart of Gatlin, where a bunch of scenes from the movie took place - this is where Burt (Peter Horton) and Vicky (Linda Hamilton) pull into the ghost town in front of Hansen’s Café, where all the adults were murdered by the children in the beginning of the movie. This is also where a ton of chase scenes throughout the movie take place. Also, you can't forget the scene where Malachai holds Vicky in front of the flagpole and yells “Outlander! Outlander! We have your woman!” It’s sure to be an incredible experience for any Children of the Corn fan! Just remember, Isaac will be watching from the corn and any unbelievers or profaners of the holy will be sacrificed unto Him …HE WHO WALKS BEHIND THE ROWS SEETH ALL!

We’re also excited to announce that Children of the Corn historian John Sullivan from ChildrenoftheCornMovie.com will be attending the event! He will be doing a Children of the Corn downtown Whiting filming locations walking tour for ticket holders - fans can see exactly where the action took place and get some insight into the behind-the-scenes making of the movie. John will also be giving a brief history of the movie before the screening.

Make a weekend out of it and stay with us at the motel featured in the movie! The motel is now the Rodeway Inn and located in Sergeant Bluff, IA, just 25 minutes north of Whiting. Ticket holders will be emailed a discount code for 15% off any room (1 bed will be $44 plus tax and 2 beds will be $52.00 plus tax). We also encourage everyone to enjoy lunch or dinner at Goodtime Charlie's Restaurant & Malt Shop in downtown Whiting. The restaurant is located directly across the street from where Hansen’s Café from the movie once stood - they will be giving all event ticket holders 10% off their entire order for the day!

ON SET CINEMA: ABOUT

ON SET CINEMA is the brainchild of Kenny Caperton. Growing up in the 80s & 90s, like most kids at the time, he spent Friday nights wandering the aisles of local video stores with friends or at home eating junk food while watching late night cable television. Caperton has always been fascinated by movies, but his love runs much deeper than the average person. He has assimilated his passion for cinema into real life - for almost 20 years Caperton has been taking "vacation" trips all over the US & Canada to visit filming locations from his favorite movies and TV shows: The Shining, Empire Records, It Follows, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Goonies, Scream, Dawson's Creek, Scott Pilgrim VS The World, Stranger Things ...the list goes on and on. He even made a full length feature film that got worldwide distribution without taking a single filmmaking class. Caperton took everything to an entirely new level in 2008 when he decided to build and live in a life-size replica of the infamous Michael Myers' house from his favorite movie of all time - John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic, Halloween.

Kenny truly understands what it means to immerse oneself in something they love and has integrated this into his daily life. Now he wants to share that experience with other fans through On Set Cinema!
