Ghostlight, a new film by Seattle’s Jeff Ferrell, screens at Clinton Street Theater for two nights October 24 and 25, as part of CST’s October Surprise. Ghostlight was made in Washington and the director and cast members will be in attendance for a Q&A at both screenings.

In the story, Andrew wins a radio contest to spend one night alone in a haunted theater on the 80th anniversary of the bloody murder/suicide that occurred there. His prize will be $50,000 if he can spend 12 hours alone inside. The theater has been plagued by a series of mysterious deaths in the years since. Andrew has no qualms about being there, but his wife Mira has been haunted by psychic premonitions about the place, www.ghostlightfilm.com .
