Bar 1919 in the Blue Star Arts Complex is showing double feature horror favorites every Tuesday in the month of October, all leading up to a spook-tacular party at the bar on Halloween.



The terrifying movie line up was created by bartender Corey Farmer. The movies start at 8 p.m. and will show in the private room of the bar. There will be a $7 cocktail that matches the theme of the week, along with 1919's typical shot specials, and, as always, $4 Jameson.

This past week the bar was streaming Shaun of the Dead and 28 Weeks Later, and to go along with it a $7 Zombie Proof cocktail made with over proof rum, house made orgeat, Green Charteruse, and lime juice . The event will continue every week with double features each night. For October 10, the bar will zero in on a mask theme with  the original IT and Halloween. October 17 is set to be a gore fest showing Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Cabin in the Woods. On October 24, Bar 1919 is rounding off with ghoul-centric movies playing The Exorcist and The Ring. The last Tuesday of the month, Halloween itself, Farmer hinted that there would be a party at the basement bar. Stay tuned to their Facebook for more details.

8pm, Tuesday through October 31, 1420 S. Alamo St. (210)227-1420.
