A Cinemark Private Watch Party offers the opportunity to rent an entire auditorium for up to 20 guests to watch a film of their choice with the group of their choice. Standard pricing for a Private Watch Party begins at $99 with no minimum concession purchase. To bring big screams to the big screen, Cinemark announced last week that it would be giving away 1,000 of these special screenings for Halloween. After running out almost immediately, the exhibitor will be releasing an additional 1,000 free Private Watch Parties to allow as many fans as possible to get in on the fun.

The first 1,000 individuals to check out with a Halloween Private Watch Party will do so for free.
For the occasion, Cinemark is bringing back all-time favorite Halloween movies that will provide everything from ghostly giggles to hair-raising horror. Family friendly films include including Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Addams Family (2019), among others.
