Organise a corporate event themed around Halloween
Kinepolis for the room hire and the atmosphere
An Irish tradition that became a big thing in the United States, before spreading to the rest of the world, Halloween is an opportunity to create a close rapport with your teams – through playful presenter-led activities and an atmosphere totally unlike the one that prevails in the office. To organise a corporate event with Halloween as its theme, you need to find a room hire option suited to the task, like the ones offered by Kinepolis, and take special care over the décor…
Room hire: why not opt for a Kinepolis cinema?
The spooky ambience, with its zombies, scarecrows and ghoulish carved pumpkins is indelibly associated with Halloween: the choice of room hire is essential when it comes to making your corporate soirée a success.
In conventional spaces, such as town halls and function rooms, you’ll have to put in twice as much effort over the decorations, if you’re to create a sufficiently spooky ambience. By contrast, with a more unusual room hire option, some elements may already be there, in situ… At a cinema, for instance…
The dark auditoriums at Kinepolis lend themselves perfectly to a corporate event centred around Halloween. To say nothing of the fact that it is easy to adapt them to suit the scale of the event: the adjustable capacity of our spaces enables us to make the most suitable selection. Here, the emphasis has to be put on inter-mingling and on darkness: if you hire a room that’s too big, these effects can easily be ruined.
The details of a corporate soirée on the theme of Halloween
At Kinepolis, we can help you put in place the décor and the entertainment for your corporate event: the room booked for you can be adorned with cobwebs, masks featuring the faces of terrifying monsters and scary pumpkins.
You can also invite your teams to come in fancy dress on the theme of Halloween: the countless characters that the genre incorporates could throw up a few pleasant surprises. And for those lacking a bit of inspiration, a make-up stand could be set up at the entrance to remedy the situation, together with some accessories and props.
To mark the occasion, Kinepolis’s caterer can lay on some little culinary delights, such as skull-shaped cupcakes, skeleton biscuits, stuffed pumpkins… As for the drinks, how about some smoking cocktails to guarantee that Halloween vibe!
Finally, the corporate event can end with a private screening of a horror film: the iconic The Shining, the irresistible The Exorcist, the enigmatic Psycho or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, dripping with gore. Be careful though: it’s important to respect everyone’s feelings: since not everyone likes this genre of films, you’ll need to give your colleagues some advance notice and choose a film on which opinions are least divided.
The team at Kinepolis is used to organising this type of corporate event: it will steer you towards the most suitable room to hire and will be full of good suggestions about the theme of Halloween – whether it’s in terms of entertainment, breaks for drinks or snacks, or film screenings.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss the event and request a quote for all of these services.
