*Please note this guide on based on having the Puzzle difficulty setting on Hard*

The entirety of this quest happens in the Theatre in Chastain Heights, you will be able to see the Theatre marked on your map in the centre top. You cannot do this quest until after the cut scene where you leave the Centennial Building. However we are going to need an item from the hardware store in order to complete this side quest.

To get to the hardware store, you need to go through the alleyway that's south of the theatre, veer right and you will find a road that curves to the left and up a slight hill, to the end of the road you will find a door with a light above it, this is the hardware store. Go to the corner of the counter where the till is and you will find the replacement bulb required for the Theatre quest. There is also a shotgun here.

Return to the theatre and enter. We need to collect 4 film reels; 3 film reels and a spliced reel.

Film Reel 1: The House on the Lake - As you enter the theatre, go behind the stand on the left, through the room at the back and this reel is there.

Film Reel 2: The Silent Children - Go through into the screening area. Face the chairs, and on the second to last row on the left side, is this reel.

Film Reel 3: The Secret of the Attic - Still facing the chairs, go up the stairs to the right and enter the room. Walk past the projector and into the room behind it. This reel is in there.

Spliced Film Reel - Turn around, leave the room and to the left of the projector there's a room with a keypad. * You CAN go through all three films separately to find the code you need for the keypad, but if you don't fancy that the code is 9241*

Once you've entered the code and gone into the room, you will then be able to splice all the films together, to make one long one called The Secret of the Child at the Lake.

Remember the light bulb we collected from the hardware store? Time for it to do it's thing! Put the light bulb in the projector to "fix" it. Put in the newly spliced film and return to the screening area. Go up to the screen, and you can enter the film and into a whole new area.


Enter the house and through the door on the left into a Living Room. There's a crank on the window sill that you'll need, so pick it up. Leave the room and go through the door at the very back of the hall. Once you've entered you will see a Jack-In-The-Box. Use the crank on it and it'll open to reveal a key, which you'll need to pick up. Go back to the door you entered the room from but don't go through it. From there go left until you reach the corner where there is a ladder. Go up that and you'll be in the loft. There's only one path you can follow up here so just walk until you find a chest. Use the key you found in the Jack-In-The Box to open it. Inside is a golden gun! (Bit of a cute James Bond reference there) You will also get two boxes of pistol ammo.
Screamers will now spawn, which of course you'll need to dispatch.

Once you leave the house you will be met by more enemies which you can either kill or run from, and you leave the cinema scene. Job done.
