"Curse of the Mummy" Parties Will Celebrate Halloween at Sleep No More's McKittrick Hotel
By Carey Purcell
The McKittrick Hotel, which is the home of the long-running, critically acclaimed Sleep No More, will celebrate Halloween with two nights of costumed festivities for the premiere after-parties for the Temple Pictures film "The Curse of the Mummy."
The parties, which will be held at the McKittrick Oct. 30-31, immediately following each evening's performance of Sleep No More, will feature Maximillian Martel and Violet DeWinter, stars of the film who also frequent the hotel on a nightly basis.
"The McKittrick — as it does annually — has conceived an entirely original Halloween celebration, this year an homage to classic Hollywood horror flicks with bottomless libations, live music, surprise guests DJs and specially-crafted entertainment inspired by classic movie monsters, reimagined as only The McKittrick can," press notes state. "The evening will also feature, for guests who so desire, an Egyptian-inspired dining experience by Chef R. L. King."
Guests attending Sleep No More Oct. 30-31 will have the opportunity to tour the hotel in costume prior to attending the festivities after the show.
"How fitting to celebrate Halloween this year with parties in honor of our new film, 'The Curse of the Mummy,'" Maximillian and Violet said in a joint statement. "We must insist that all who attend do so dressed for the occasion — as harem girls, nomads, serpent charmers, sword swallowers, pharaohs, mummies, traders, treasure hunters, archaeologists, and the bizarre of the bazaar... but only if you are 21 or over, since things are bound to turn macabre. It is Halloween, after all."
The creative team includes Felix Barrett (direction and design), Maxine Doyle (direction and choreography), Stephen Dobbie (sound design), Beatrice Minns (design associate) and Livi Vaughan (design associate).
Tickets can be purchased at mckittrickhotel.com/curseofthemummy. Costumes are strictly enforced for all patrons attending Sleep No More and/or the parties.
