The Historic Howell Theater is known as one of the most haunted locations in Southeast Michigan with unexplainable activity happening frequently within the walls of the cinema. The experience of a hunt that is never the same twice leads countless guests to return each year to investigate potential paranormal activity. The hunts are a fundraiser for the continued restoration and operation of this golden age of cinema movie house.
As part of the two-hour hunt, guests will have the opportunity to interact in various ‘experiments’ to encourage interaction with the spirit world. (The Portal Paranormal Society) PPS uses some of the latest technology as well as some older techniques to capture any interactions and unexplained energy.
All are welcome to attend, but parents are advised to use their discretion on age of children in attendance. While the hunts themselves are rated “G” no one can know or control what any spirits may say through the equipment. This is an indoor, walkable event and attendees who have investigative equipment are welcome to bring and use it as long as it doesn’t interfere with the hunt.
