If, just like us, you’ve been anxiously waiting for those weekly episodes of Only Murders in the Building — carefully inspecting clues to solve the mystery — you’ll be glad to know an entire weekend of drama awaits at the iconic United Palace… the real-life location of the Goosebury Theater! On September 23 – 24, comedy and murder mystery fans alike can delight in solving the crime of Ben Glenroy by stepping into the Emmy®-nominated show IRL.
As you’re waiting for all episodes of season 3 to be released, why not embody your beloved characters? This season’s tagline is “murder can be a real showstopper,” but we have faith you’ll help solve the mystery before the final curtain call.
As you step inside the theater, you’ll be briefed by Detective Williams’ team to get a head-start on your investigation of the murder of Ben Glenroy. Just like in the show, hidden messages are lurking in the shadows so keep an eye out for the most improbable clues: examine costumes, props… anything that can lead you to help solve the mystery of Glenroy’s murderer in this active crime scene. And remember: the show must go on!
This thrilling experience is also the perfect opportunity to dive a bit deeper into the show. Quirky memorabilia and activities will make you feel as part of the crew, including a quick “touch up” from Rare Beauty and a visit to the White Room before you step out on the main stage. You’ll get to snap a photo with Gideon Goosebury’s ghost light, visit the towering Pickwick Lighthouse, and pin your whodunnit theory on Mabel’s Murder Board.
Only Murders in the Building’s third season premiere “drew 719 million minutes of watch time for the week of Aug. 7-13”, an increase of 24% from season 2’s beloved finale (Nielsen rankings). It’s clearly that show, and if you haven’t found time to indulge in the latest season, just know Hulu named it “the wildest season yet.” We won’t spoil it for you, but the biggest question remains: can the team find Ben’s killer while saving their play?
There’s no sure way to find out just now (until all episodes are released, hang on tight). In the meantime, we’ll be at United Palace on September 23 – 24 to uncover our very own mystery. Spaces are limited and subject to availability, with admission on a first come, first served basis — so we suggest you run to secure your spot as soon as you can. Oh, and did we mention you can embark on the exciting adventure for free?
