Looking for a thriller of a Halloween? Morehead’s got you covered.

On Thursday, catch the newest Chapel Hill Halloween tradition — “Scare-o-lina Skies,” Morehead’s Halloween take on the classic “Carolina Skies” planetarium show. Explore the hidden stories of mayhem, murder and madness in the constellations! Regular ticket prices apply, just $6 for adults, with shows at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 29, 2009.

And now Morehead’s added “Scare-o-lina Skies: Family Edition” so you can bring your school-age kids to join the fun. Catch the family-friendly version on Sunday, Nov. 1, at 3:30 p.m. Kids’ tickets are just $5.

How about the one-of-a-kind “Laser Halloween” experience that combines Halloween-themed music with an amazing light show? It’s perfect for the family, and you can only catch “Laser Halloween” on Halloween Day itself, Oct. 31. Treat yourself to “Laser Halloween” at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. (These replace the regular planetarium shows on the schedule, just for this one day.) Laser shows are premium shows, so special ticket prices apply: $9.50 for adults, $7.50 for students and Morehead members. Sorry, no coupons or passes for premium shows.

Of course, Halloween is a major event on Franklin Street, when monsters and maniacs take over downtown! Morehead closes at 2:30 p.m. on Halloween Day. The university parking lot adjacent to Morehead closes at 3 p.m. and becomes a staging area for public safety vehicles throughout the evening, so if you visit Morehead for “Laser Halloween,” be sure to move your car by 3 p.m.
