Our first ever HALLOWEEN PARTY is taking place within Matthew Gatto’s Parlor of Horrors, on exhibit at our Belmont gallery! Christopher Hays will be spinning spooky tunes for you to dance to all evening long! Champion Brewery’s “Lichen Bite Imperial Red Ale” (specially made for the Parlor of Horrors) will be flowing (included w/ticket)! The classic cinema dungeon environment of the Parlor of Horrors is the perfect environment for what will surely be the Halloween party of the year!
Costumes are by no means mandatory… but… you know.
If you come unprepared and without costume, we’ll have party-favor mask for you, handmade by Charlottesville based artist Jeremy Taylor! (while supplies last!)

MORE ABOUT THE PARLOR OF HORRORS
Parlor of Horrors will transform The Bridge’s Belmont gallery into a dungeon of classic cinema horror this October! The Parlor of Horrors is local artist and collector Matthew Gatto’s tribute to the golden age of Hollywood horror films and other cinema monster classics. This exhibit is a carefully curated collection of hand-crafted monster masks, life-size terrors, vintage movie posters & other ephemera focused on the all-familiar Universal Studios creatures (with some of the modern classics as well). This month-long monstrous mini-museum will include horror film screenings, spooky live music, and an absolutely frightful Halloween Party. Beware!
Matthew, a self-taught sculptor & mask-maker has added to his collection a number of original works inspired and influenced by the horror genre and the great mask-makers of the past and present. Through his own artistic process, Matthew highlights the skill and artistry present in the production of classic horror films, especially their titular characters. The Parlor of Horrors at the Bridge combines the work of an artist with the collection of a true fan and the result is an immersive experience evocative of the gothic world of a horror film set brought to life.
