Gorilla Cinemas Brings 'Dark Magic' Halloween Pop-Up to Over-the-Rhine Bar

By Katherine Barrier,


Something wicked is coming to an Over-the-Rhine bar this Halloween.

Gorilla Cinemas, the creative pop-up and immersive experience masters behind Tiki Tiki Bang Bang, Tokyo Kitty and Cosmic Gorilla, is unleashing sinister forces into their Findlay Market area witches- and wizards-themed bar, Pennifold’s Pub, for spooky season. Halloween pop-up bar “Dark Magic” will bring the abyss of the arcane to every corner of Pennifold’s, with a series of eerie events and themed cocktails and cursed mocktails.

“As you cross the threshold, be prepared to be captivated by an atmosphere steeped in the macabre, and cloaked in the unknown,” Gorilla Cinemas said in a press release.


Dark Magic will take its hold on Pennifold’s from Wednesday, Sept. 27 to Sunday, Nov. 5. The bar will be open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-10 p.m.; Fridays from 4 p.m. to midnight; Saturdays from 1 p.m. to midnight; and Sundays from noon to 8 p.m. Guests of all ages are allowed in the pop-up until 9 p.m., but Gorilla Cinemas warns the theme may be too intense for kids under 8.

Pennifold's Pub, 1834 Race St., Over-the-Rhine. More info: .
