This fall, JFI Productions explores what creeps in the darkness of your mind. At night. While you sleep. Everyone dreams. You have to. They say if you don’t dream, you die. Or is it – if you die in your dreams, you die in real life? Everyone’s has a bad dream they just can’t shake – or a dream that’s so real it feels like you’re AWAKE. What happens if your nightmares keep repeating, night after night? And what happens if you’re too afraid to close your eyes at night… afraid of what’s inside your mind?
Audiences in LA will enter the deep twisted darkness of nightmares. And if you get too scared, just remember: It’s all a dream. Right?

The Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol was a Paris playhouse formed in the turn of the century that ran for nearly 70 years and featured nearly all of society’s taboos.
At Theatre Macabre you will return to the darkest chapter of theater’s past while simultaneously experiencing the most cutting-edge breakthroughs of today’s immersive entertainment leaders.
Hilarious, shocking and electrifying vignettes await at every turn but so do the purveyors of these dark arts and they may, or may not, have your best interest in mind. Ever increasingly, the line between what is real and what is simply unsettling entertainment will become more and more divided as the night wears on.

Spade Cooley is jack of all trades. He first made it big in the 1930’s as a bootlegger. When prohibition ended he creeped his way into Los Angeles. Along the road from Chicago he assembled a group of loyal misfits and psychopath’s and a trail of carnage followed in their path. In the wake of the L.A zoot suit riots he set up shop in an old abandoned warehouse outside of Los Angeles and Ace of Spades Transport and Storage was born. Soon after on the morning of January 15 1947 in a vacant lot on the west side of South Norton , the body of an aspiring young actress was found severed in two pieces. The severely mutilated body was completely severed at the waist and drained entirely of blood, leaving its skin a pallid white. Her face had been slashed from the corners of her mouth to her ears, creating a twisted smile. The L.A newspapers tagged it the Black Dahlia murder and the city was changed forever. The murder has never solved. Spade had left his mark on Los Angeles and it greased the wheels of decades of unsolved murders and disappearances across the country. The Cleveland Torso murders and the Chicago Lip Stick murders to name a few. Fear is power and nobody does it better than Spade. But, nothing lasts forever or does it? Because of his sins Spade was forever cast out to wonder among us in search of his next big gig. Today he serves up a new kind of Fear as master of ceremonies at the Fear Addiction Haunted House. When Spade digs under your skin he stays there. Fear is his business and business is good.

Amidst some of the oldest gravesites since Long Beach was established rest the colorful, sometimes sordid stories of the past, of pioneers, speculators and others just along for the ride. We’ve been waking them up for a few hours these past 23 years, inviting them to share our richly diverse history from their resting places in the crusty, parched old cemeteries of slumping headstones we know as Sunnyside and Long Beach Municipal.
The tour features graveside presentations by actors who relate the life and demise of the person lying in rest. Each year’s program features a number of stories – some are individuals who helped shape the city’s political past, others are ordinary people whose tales remind us that rich or poor, famed or nearly forgotten, everyone has a story to tell.
Dates: Oct 27
Time: 9am-3pm (Last performances start at 2:40)
Price: Adults $20, Children 5-18 $8, Children 4 and under $1
