Any time of year is a good time for a story, but Halloween is a great time, especially for a ghost story.
So, just in time for Halloween season, Storytelling Arts is hosting their popular Ghost Stories Event with the added bonus of two drive-in movie screenings!
On today’s Indy Style, Tracy chatted with the Co-founder of Storytelling Arts Indiana, Bob Sander.
There will be two films shown after the live, ghost stories “The Addams Family” and “The Ring.” Guests can stay until 1:00 a.m. to watch them if they want. So, for $50 a carload, this is quite a deal.
Storytelling Arts of Indiana has redesigned its popular Ghost Stories event for fans to enjoy safely in the age of COVID-19. Relocating from Crown Hill Cemetery to Tibbs Drive-In allows guests to remain in their cars or socially distanced in lawn chairs for the ultimate, outdoor, fall tailgating experience on Friday, October 23, 2020.
Hoosier storytellers Celestine Bloomfield, David Matlack, Sally Perkins and Bob Sander will spin spine-tingling tales for all to enjoy, followed by a family-friendly scary movie on the big screen. When it ends, we’ll show one for the adults. Decorate your car and plan to wear a costume!
WHEN: Friday, October 23, 2020
WHERE: Tibbs Drive-In, 480 S Tibbs Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46241
Schedule of events:
8:00 p.m. – Ghost Stories

11:00 p.m. – “The Ring” (2002 film)
