Halloween Fun starts with a downtown Ghost Tour preceding the showing of Phantom of the Opera at the Bob Hope Theatre, on Sunday, Oct. 30.

Downtown historic walking tour group takes in the lobby of the Hotel Stockton at a previous walking tour.

The Ghost Tour, which is free, begins at Noon in front of the Hotel Stockton, on Weber Avenue. The tour will include ghost stories and also a talk  about Stockton’s ghosts that are said to inhabit some of Stockton’s lost buildings (like the old Yosemite Theatre and historic Courthouse that was demolished in 1960). The tour will include historic footnotes as well as ghost stories, as told by the Downtown Stockton Alliance’s Manuel Laguna and the Friends of the Fox’s Kelly Howard.

The tour returns to the Bob Hope Theatre around 1:15 PM (organ concert at 1:30; the movie begins at 2 PM); after the movie Howard will give a free Ghost Tour of the Theatre itself. The Noon Ghost Tour is free; cost for the movie is $8 for adults, and $4 for students.  If more than 10 people on the tour, Howard can offer tickets for the movie at $6 apiece. For more info on the tour, contact Howard at (510) 882-1707.
