Event Details

Spirited Ghost Tour - Oct 10th

  • October 10, 2022 - 6:00pm
  • Doors open at 5:30pm
  • Coronado Performing Arts Center

Two hour-long, guided Spirited Ghost Tours will include haunting historical accounts of Rockford’s Coronado Theatre

Spirits abound as guides recount supernatural tales collected from theatre staff and contractors over the years. You will experience the Grande Barton Organ, see a short skit with our resident Dracula on the stage, and hear actual accounts of many strange happenings within the theater walls while being taken on a nooks and cranny tour of the theater. LOLTOS, the theater Archivist have captured these stories over the years to share with believers and non-believers alike.

Over the years, several of the staff and more than a few visitors have claimed to smell the cigar aroma of Coronado’s visionary and owner Willard Van Matre, witnessed a shadowy figure float by, or heard a dog barking without cause. Will you?

General Admission tickets are $24, plus applicable fees, and are available for purchase here by calling 815-968-5222. The Ghost Tours are not recommended for children under the age of 10; children under six are not permitted.

All proceeds benefit the preservation of the Coronado's original Grand Barton Organ!
