A group of college students venture into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of James’ sister who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.

BLAIR WITCH opens nationwide on September 16, 2016.

Guests will encounter tense physical and psychological situations and are encouraged to heed all miasma warnings before choosing to participate.  A safety word is provided for those who wish to end their experience for any reason.

Located in the 60657 zip code, the exact location is revealed to guests only twenty four hours before the event with instructions on how to proceed. Miasma is personal, extreme, and not for the faint of heart.

Dark Chicago has received a set of passes to a special advance screening of LIGHTS OUT this Monday (July 18) at 7:00 pm. To claim yours, visit!

This screening is first-come, first-served, so we advise arriving early. Seats are not guaranteed.

From producer James Wan (“The Conjuring”) comes a tale of an unknown terror that lurks in the dark. When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.

Lights Out opens nationwide on July 22, 2016.
