You're cordially invited to a spine-tingling evening of horror as we continue our decades-old tradition screening "The Exorcist" on Copley Lawn! Since the eerie days when "The Exorcist" was filmed on campus in 1972, Georgetown has celebrated Halloween Eve in a truly haunting style. We invite you to immerse yourself in the spirit of the season and be part of this chilling cinematic event. We have it all–from the nighttime Farmers Market to the "The Exorcist" film screening...all leading up to Healy Howl in the Jesuit Cemetery when the clock strikes midnight.
