Bluewater together with Glenlore Immersive Entertainment will partner with Emagine Entertanment to transform a nearly 100-year old Michigan theatre into a haunted attraction for Halloween. The experience will take place at the Birmingham 8, located at 211 South Old Woodward Avenue in Birmingham.

The historic building originally built in 1927 is the perfect venue for this haunted experience. The theatre has a history of paranormal activity including reports of unexplained encounters and mysterious sounds of voices and footsteps. Bluewater will transform 11 different areas of the theater, including many spaces of the historic building which have never before been seen by the public.

“The history of this building and the vision of the Emagine team to create such a memorable experience, is the perfect canvas for our team to create a haunted destination that will play with your mind and have you seeing things that may or may not be there,” said Scott Schoeneberger, Managing Partner of Bluewater. “We’re excited at the potential for future seasonal experiences in this space as well.”
