Reservations are highly suggested.
#4 February 9, 10, 14: “Love is Blind” Dark Hour Haunted House
The “Love is Blind” Haunted House event is only for the bravest of the brave (or someone who really wants to hold their partner’s hand). As DFW’s premier haunted house, Dark Hour is equipped with Broadway show levels of set spectacularity, professional actors, and a creepy story that’ll make your skin crawl.

#5 On Valentine’s Day: My Bloody Valentine
Calling all film junkies! The rare 35 mm showing of My Bloody Valentine (1981) at Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson) is a killer conclusion to your V-Day! In addition to viewing a cult classic, there will also be a LIVE Q&A, meet-and-greet, and autograph signing from star Peter Cowper. A portion of the proceeds from the screening will benefit Stop The Stigma – a Texas non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating the stigma placed on mental illnesses.
