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 Empire RecordsThe Strangers, and Twilight 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!

Cape May, New Jersey • The Inn of Cape May



Join On Set Cinema in beautiful Cape May, New Jersey (aka Avalon Bay) for a special one-night only celebration event of The Prowler at the historic Inn of Cape May. This is the incredible building where the graduation dances took place and where the interior of the dorms were filmed. I will be showing the movie inside the Inn in the exact location where the dances took place - there will be balloons, party streamers, music, punch (possibly spiked), cake and a screening of the movie on Saturday night! I highly recommend reserving a room and staying overnight at The Inn - On Set Cinema tickets holders will be emailed a discount code for Saturday night lodging.

I’m extremely excited to announce that actress Vicky Dawson (final girl Pam MacDonald) will be a special guest at this event! Vicky will be flying across the country to take part in this celebration with us - she will be doing an autograph signing and Q&A at the Inn of Cape May before the screening. Fans will also have the opportunity to get a photo with her at the Southern Mansion on Saturday next to Rosemary's fireplace (more details coming soon).

You can bring your own item to get signed or purchase an exclusive event poster created by Quiltface Studios. Vicky Dawson: $20 per autograph (your item or ours), which includes a free picture with Vicky at the signing table (your camera). $10 for photo op with Vicky at the Southern Mansion next to Rosemary's fireplace (your camera). No autographs or photo ops will be sold in advance - everything will be available the day of the event. Event schedule coming soon. Don't miss this amazing opportunity! This is going to be the ultimate PROWLER event and a great weekend to hang out with fellow fans at incredible locations.

*** Joy Glaccum unexpectedly passed away on September 30th. I had a long phone conversation with her earlier this year and she was so excited to meet the fans. She seemed like such a genuinely sweet lady. You can read her obituary

All work and no play makes you a dull boy. Come and play with us forever …and ever …and ever on Sunday, December 1st, 2019 at a very special ON SET CINEMA screening of THE SHINING! I will be showing the film at the National Historic Timberline Lodge …aka The Overlook Hotel in beautiful Mount Hood, Oregon. The Timberline Lodge sits high on the shoulder of one of the most iconic mountain peaks in the Pacific Northwest and served as the filming location for the exterior establishing shots of the infamous Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying novel, The Shining!

This is an extremely rare public screening of the movie at Timberline and seating is limited. Fans will have access to the hotel grounds for the day, as well as the interior of the lodge (the Cascade dining room, Ram’s Head Bar & Restaurant, Wy’East Café, Y’Bar, history exhibit, gift shop, game room & more). I highly recommend staying overnight - On Set Cinema tickets holders will be emailed a discount code for Sunday night lodging. Just to give you an idea of the discount:

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!
