For the first time since the filming of the horror classic, The Silence of the Lambs actor Brooke Smith, who infamously played the unforgettable role of Catherine Martin, will return to visit Buffalo Bill’s House, the real location where the climax to the film was shot!
Brooke last stepped foot inside “Buffalo Bill’s House” over thirty years ago during the scene where she is rescued from the infamous ‘well’ in which she is held captive by the serial killer Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs. In that scene, Brooke is led out of the house and through its doors into the arms of her mother, Senator Ruth Martin (played by Diane Baker).
Fans are now able to purchase a ticket for a meet and greet with Brooke Smith during the weekend of September 22-24 (multiple time slots are available).
All guests will receive a full guided tour of Buffalo Bill’s House and the opportunity to meet actress Brooke Smith, who will be signing 8×10 autographs & memorabilia and taking pictures with tour guests (for an additional fee). There will even be a special VIP Experience add-on that will allow fans to get inside the well with Brooke dressed as her character Catherine Martin!
Tours will be personally conducted by Buffalo Bill’s House owner, Chris Rowan. During the exclusive tours, intimate groups of guests will be able to visit the home in its entirety as well as the sprawling property. Tours will last approximately 90 minutes in length.
