Ghost tour opens on the silver screen Oct. 22

The fifth annual Ghost Tour and History Walk movie will be shown at Star Cinema in Stayton on Oct. 22.

The movie is a re-release of 2021’s film by Pixie Forest Films. Based on a concept by Trisha McCain and written by Julia Bochsler, the spooky historical drama follows ghosts around Historic Downtown Stayton to tell the story of the city’s founding in 1872 thru the business and building entrepreneurs of the 1910s and into the fires and WPA project of the 1930s.

Local actors portraying a few of Stayton’s most interesting characters will delight viewers with some of Stayton’s rich early history. 

Old photographs, maps and a narration lead the viewer through the good times and the not so good times of the town. 

While this is mostly a historical piece, some poetic license has been taken for entertainment value.

This year’s Premier showing of the movie will be at Stayton’s Star Cinema in downtown Stayton on Saturday, at 1  p.m. Cost is $5 per person. Tickets are available on the theater’s website,

Beginning Sunday, Oct. 23, the motion picture will be available at or to watch online through Nov. 5. The cost is $5 for a 24-hour time period.

The show is presented by Revitalize Downtown Stayton and Santiam Heritage Foundation.
