The highlight of this event will be viewing the classic scary movie adapted from Ray Bradbury’s 1953 hit sci-fi story “It Came from Outer Space.” The Heritage Square Museum will again partner with 3-D SPACE to showcase this film in 3-D. 3-D glasses will be available for all guests. Popcorn, soft drinks as well as snacks will be available for sale. The admission fee is $10, but members will gain admission for free. Gates will open at 6:30 PM, with the movie showing at 7:00.

Heritage Square Museum is a well-known Southern California “living history” museum. Built at the height of the Victorian era, it was preserved when leading personalities of the day wished to leave a lasting heritage of the wondrous architecture of that period for posterity. The architecture of the museum has been highly acclaimed for integrating gable roofs with complex and extremely detailed woodwork and windowed turrets.

Over a span of 40 years, the Heritage Square Museum has being privileged to purchase and initiate restoration work on a grand total of eight different buildings. All of these are of significant historical importance to Southern California. Some of the most prominent of these restorations include the Longfellow – Hastings Octagon House, which was highly renowned for its unparalleled simplicity, and the William Perry Mansion, known for its unmatched extravagance and elegance. Through these high profile building restoration projects, the Heritage Square Museum has provided the general public with a glimpse of the perspective of that era.

Other upcoming events at the Heritage Square Museum include their annual Halloween and Mourning Tours on October 28-29, and the Holiday Lamplight Celebration held December 2-3. The museum is open 11:30 am to 4:30 pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday and federal holiday Mondays. Guided tours are available departing from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
