Egyptian Theatre: 135 N.2nd Street - DeKalb, IL

Amenti is Taking a Break

The Amenti Haunted House started in 2006 and has been housed inside the historic Egyptian Theatre. The event is produced by the Egyptian Theatre as a fundraiser for the non-profit owned and operated historic Theatre. Because of the tremendous growth this event has seen it is no longer feasible to continue the event inside the Egyptian Theatre.

We have made the tough decision to not do the haunted house this year (2015) in order to provide us with the time needed to evaluate the event and make plans for the future. This decision was not made easily but is the best decision for this event to have the opportunity to expand.

The Amenti Haunted House has always been located in the historic Egyptian Theatre which has always provided many challenges logistically in producing this event inside the historic building. The scale of Amenti has increased so much that we have to find a new location to continue the high level of production that our fans have come to expect.

We plan to take this next year to evaluate all of our options in relocating Amenti to a new location. Initial discussions are already underway to review other buildings and partnerships in the area that could provide a successful future for this event.

We are all disappointed that Amenti will not be coming to life this year but it will provide the exciting opportunity to thoroughly explore the future of this event.
