The Birmingham 8 Powered by Emagine, long time rumored to be haunted, was constructed in 1927 as a playhouse prior to its remodel as a movie theatre in the 1980s. Guests have reported encounters with apparitions, hearing sounds of disembodied voices and footsteps, as well as experiencing other unexplained paranormal activity like lights flickering, doors opening and closing by themselves, and objects being moved by an unseen entity. Employees working at the old theatre late at night additionally report feeling a strange presence and experiencing unexplained feelings of paranoia and fear in certain areas of the building.

The theatre will not be showing movies during the month of October and will be completely transformed back to Victorian era times for this immersive haunted theatre attraction. The bloodcurdling haunt is designed by Bluewater’s professional set designers and will transform 11 different chilling areas of the theatre, including many spaces in this old historic building never before seen by the public. Each area of the haunt will be uniquely themed and staffed by professional actors trained in the art of terror.

The haunted attraction chronicles the experience of theatre proprietor Mr. Baldwin, an old caretaker who has worked in the theatre for over 50 years, and a harrowing tale of murder and the mayhem that followed. This is not for the faint of heart…this will scare you to death, just like what happened to Mr. Baldwin’s family, friends, and many patrons of his theatre! These “Ghosts on the Balcony” still haunt the building today!

The “Ghosts on the Balcony” will run daily October 1 – 30, and will feature a weekend family friendly haunt (ages 5-12) Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00pm – 5:00pm, and a bloodcurdling adult haunt (ages 13 and over) Sunday thru Thursday from 7:00pm -10:00pm, and Friday and Saturday from 7:00pm to 1:00am. Guests will also have the ability to purchase food and beverages from the concession stand along with adult (21+) beverages at various stops throughout the experience.

To round out the experience, guests are also invited to Emagine Palladium (located a short walk away) after the haunts to enjoy an after party for crafted brews and spirits, food and dancing. The “Ghosts on the Balcony” will become an absolute must do for those who want to enjoy the scariest time of the year!

Hours of Operation: Family Friendly haunt (ages 5-12) Saturdays, and Sundays from 2:00pm – 5:00pm Adult haunt (ages 13 and over) Sunday thru Thursday from 7:00pm -10:00pm, and Friday and Saturday from 7:00pm to 1:00am

  • Email Verified meh

    The "hour-long" tour took all of 28 minutes - and that's including my getting lost in the maze twice and being the last member of our group to come out. One bit i really liked (minor spoiler alert) was the guy chasing us with a chainsaw screaming "get out quick" - in hindsight it was more prophetic than scary.

  • Different kind of haunted house

    Starting off sitting in an old theater was really cool! I never knew what to expect around each corner. The special effects were great and felt real at times!

    Lame old storyline about a deranged doctor. No point, no thrills, no scare! Not at All as advertised. People exiting were perplexed about what they had just wasted their money on. Beware! Don't Go!
