All Halloween Night - A Show, Bands and Booze!


Terror strikes the legendary El Cid on Halloween Night with the Feast of Terror Spook Show,a mixture of a horror–themed variety show and a spook show from the 50's, featuring live, multi-media performances of classic horror comic book stories. Live music, spooky acts, spine-chilling tales, sultry singing and prizes are thrown in for a night of thrilling entertainment that will also feature a monstrous séance and other elements of a vintage spook show. We’ll even raffle off a dead body!


Special guests will join the mayhem, including a “ghastly” appearance by the surf band The Noble Gasses! After the show, stay and keep the party going while enjoying bands, food and drinks!


El Cid is the perfect place for such a chilling production. Revel in the venue’s moody 100 year-plus history while enjoying a brand new tapas menu and superb cocktails. Get there early to grab a good seat and excellent food, or get there near curtain and start drinking!




Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is what would happen if Garrison Keilor, John Waters and Stan Lee all hooked up after a night of hard partying. We combine the art, drama and comedy of a vintage radio program with the live entertainment of a variety show. Shows are built around performances of vintage pop culture gems, usually giving old comic books a modern voice, along with live sound fx, and live music


Creepy LAis the premier blog that lets the City of Angeles know what to do during the Halloween season. With thousands of readers, Creepy LA is the first and last place to get the skinny on Halloween.


This year’s  Halloween show is part of our Fall 2012 mini-season that included last month’s hit, The Saturday Morning Cartoons Live Show. For the past few years, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater has been performing around Los Angeles at a number of venues, including the Alexandria Hotel, i/O West, The Bootleg, the Velaslavasay Panorama and the Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics.


Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is a group dedicated to producing high-quality live, filmed and recorded entertainment; bred in Chicago, but in LA to stay. We never fail to entertain! Here’s a little of what “they” are saying:


"Park your time machine on Sunset and join these retro revivalists for a unique variety show that's sure to impress funny book fans of every era."
