Macabre Cinema (1222 West 12th Street, 816-471-2250) places two demands on its visitors: knowledge of horror-film lore and how to pronounce the word macabre (helpful homophone: McCobb). Guests step through a vintage theater's flickering screen into scenes from A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, Frankenstein and other popular horror films in an open layout reminiscent of the Beast and the Edge of Hell.
