She went to see what was going on and they both told her that there was a man at the top of the stairs (the stairs that led to the balcony). The woman called one of the workers in and he asked the kids what the man looked like. They gave him a very elaborate description. A few days later that same worker was closing up after the shows and was making sure the emergency exits were closed. As he walked out of the hallway to the one exit he looked up to the projection room and saw a man duck his head really quickly.

New Haven – The Tunnel between New Haven High School and New Haven Middle School – There is a small, cramped tunnel that runs under the highway between New Haven High School and New Haven Middle School. Legend says that back in the early 70s, a homeless man was beaten to death by a group of sixth graders returning from a basketball game. For several days he was passed on by students who, not realizing he was dead, kicked and prodded the body with sticks. Some accounts even say that “Fat Mikey”, one of the most notoriously bad seventh graders, urinated on the man’s prone form. Finally, after a weeks time, someone reported the body to authorities. However, when the police arrived, they found nothing but a few scraps of clothe and bone fragments. Some speculate that he had been devoured completely by “The Feral Dogs of Lincoln Highway”. Others believe that he now lives beneath the earth and rises from the dead on the nights when basketball games are played, waiting to prey on unsuspecting children. There are many eerie feelings associated with this tunnel, and a few students claim to have heard voices or even feel a rough hand gripping their shoulder. Whatever the case, you can always smell urine there.
