  1. Back in the 1980’s, I worked at Bellaire Theatre. I was advised when I started to not go into the projection room alone. Well, curiosity got me. I only did it once. Late at night after all of the customers had left and we were cleaning up, I saw a little girl in the ladies room. I asked her where her parents were. She giggled and went out the door. I asked my coworkers if they’d seen her and when I described her, was told that was a ghost. She looked pretty darn real to me.

  2. I worked for Artisan Center Theater for three years a few years ago, and had several experiences. Once, while I was alone in the theater, a human-sized black shadow raced past me down a hallway. I wondered if it might have been a shadow from a passing car outside, but the windows were covered by black velvet. Also, another day while I was alone and walking across the stage, a bald man wearing brown overalls jumped out from behind some scenery and grinned at me. l froze, knowing no person was there. He looked full of mischief, and then he just faded into nothing! My heart was pounding. (I told a young actor in the theater, who admitted that he had once also seen the same bald man). My third experience happened when I was preparing light cues for an upcoming production. I was on the stage calling cues while another employee was in the light booth. She became frustrated because the light board was acting up and she couldn’t understand what was happening to it. We all knew the ghost was called “Neil,” and my son had nicknamed him “Neil the Nerd,” so I jokingly called out, “Alright, Neil the Nerd, we’ll be done in a minute and you can play with the technology.” At that, all the lights blacked out except for the ones aimed directly on me, which began flashing off and on! My co-worker in the light booth swore she wasn’t touching anything, and she was really scared! I never felt afraid while working there, and disagree about the Neil spirit not being nice. I think he is just a harmless prankster.

  3. I worked here in the mid ninetys… I never experienced anything weird. Us employees wpuld even turn out the lights at the end of the night and have a friendly game if hide ans seek.
