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 Beetlejuice, CarrieIt 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 the Summer Camp where Jason Voorhees knocks off a bunch of camp counselors in Jason Lives, ON SET CINEMA takes you there!

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT! NO MORE TICKETS WILL BE ADDED AND THERE IS NOT A WAITLIST.

Join ON SET CINEMA in Oak Park, Illinois on Friday, December 9, 2022 for a very special holiday screening of one of the most beloved movies of all time, HOME ALONE. I'll be showing the film inside historic Grace Episcopal Church (built in 1901) ...the actual church where Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) runs into Old Man Marley (Roberts Blossom) just before the final house showdown. This is the location where one of the most heartfelt scenes in the film takes place - Kevin is confronted by Marley and discovers that he's not such a scary guy and they both offer each other helpful advice during the holiday season.

I would like to thank pastor Rev. Dr. John G. Rumple and everyone at Grace Episcopal for opening up their beautiful church for this event. The church will be decorated for Christmas, the Home Alone soundtrack will be playing and just like in the movie there will be a holiday songs performance by the church choir. This is going to be an incredible experience for Home Alone fans! ...Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!!

*** Just the interior church scenes were filmed at this location.

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT! NO MORE TICKETS WILL BE ADDED AND THERE IS NOT A WAITLIST.
 

Good evening ladies and gentlemen! ...why so serious? Put on your finest outfit and join ON SET CINEMA this December inside Bruce Wayne's penthouse in downtown Gotham (aka downtown Chicago) for a very special screening of The Dark Knight. I'll be showing the film exactly where Joker (Heath Ledger) and his goons crash Harvey Dent's (Aaron Eckhart) fundraiser party and face-off with Batman (Christian Bale) in a fight, then Joker pushes Rachel (Maggie Gyllenhaal) out of a window!

This is one of the most captivating scenes in the entire Dark Knight Trilogy. The building where this scene was shot is located in downtown Chicago on Wacker Dr and has since been turned into the Chicago Architecture Center. The scene was actually filmed on the first floor of the building - the production used green-screens to digitally fill in the Gotham skyline in post-production.

There will be free drinks, free popcorn and a filming location tour of the scene! Fans are encouraged to dress up in costume or in formal wear just like in the movie, but of course it's not required to attend. This is going to be an unforgettable experience for fans and a wonderful way to celebrate Heath Ledger's incredible work creating the iconic Dark Knight Joker character ...you'll leave with a permanent smile on your face :)

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!
