  Halloween Kills will stream on Peacock the same day of its theatrical release The night Michael Myers came home (to Peacock)That might seem a strange move, considering Candyman is currently performing well at the box office, and Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has smashed Labor Day weekend records.

Over the decades, film crews have headed to the city and beyond to shoot their latest projects, featuring some of our historic streets, iconic buildings and known tourist attractions.
