Pittsburgh has an array of charming activities to participate in during the fall season — like pumpkin-themed tours and the perfect cool weather for fall concerts. But for Halloween enthusiasts looking for something a little more horrifying, Hundred Acres Manor has something that’ll be sure to frighten anyone.
From 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 26., Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum will partner with Hundred Acres Manor to produce a replica of the cage from the Academy Award-winning horror film “Silence of the Lambs.” A cast of actors will recreate the cage scene in the same room the scene was originally shot. W. Stephen Coleman, who played Sgt. Pembry in the 1991 film, will attend the recreation to mingle with guests.
Alongside the main act, storyteller and Duquesne University professor Thomas White will narrate spooky military-themed stories. A tarot card reader and psychic medium will also be on hand so guests are able to uncover any ghostly secrets of their own.
In case you want to document the ominous evening, illustrator Howard Bender will be on scene to draw guests as their favorite Halloween character for $10-$20. The exhibit will have a full cash bar, so guests must be 21 or older to attend — but guests are also encouraged to embrace their inner kid by wearing Halloween costumes.
Tickets are $10 in advance online or $15 at the door. To find out more about the Silence of the Lambs Special Exhibit at Soldiers and Sailors Hall or to purchase tickets, visit their website.
