Alamo Drafthouse: David Cronenberg's grosstastic feature, THE FLY, will show at 7 p.m.

Tuesday, October 21st
Alamo Drafthouse: The horror classic, THE EXORCIST, will show at 7 p.m. hopefully with a pea soup special.  If mullets are more your thing, The Action Pack will feature THE LOST BOYS at 7:30 p.m.

Wednesday, October 22nd

Alamo Drafthouse: Another chance to sing-a-long with your favorite talking plant in THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at 7:00 p.m. But if an epic horror movie is more your speed, then THE SHINING will be playing at  8:00 p.m.

Granada Theater: Free film plus whiskey specials! On the rooftop at Sundown at the Granada at 8:30 p.m. a presentation of GROUNDHOG DAY will happen. There's no excuse because it's almost perfect weather to watch a film outside. 

Angelika Dallas: For a bit of something different, you can check out the stage version of Frankenstein directed by Danny Boyle and starring british darling, Benedict Cumberbatch. Curtains up at 2 p.m.

Thursday, October 23rd

Alamo Drafthouse: In another fantastic movie/beer pairing, Community Beer will be on hand for a special presentation of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET at 7 p.m.. It's a little bit more expensive of a ticket, but it also gets you five-beer flight in conjunction with the film. Or you can rock out to your favorite '80s jams with the TOTALLY 80s SINGALONG DANCE PARTY at 8:30 p.m., leg warmers not included. 

Angelika Dallas: Another movie for Hitchcocktober, REAR WINDOW at 8 p.m.

Angelika Dallas: They're heeeeeere! Late night showing of POLTERGEIST will show at 11:30 p.m.

The Texas Theatre: Cinewild presents a presentation of BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN at 9:15. A perfect movie for this venue. 

Saturday, October 25th

Alamo Drafthouse: For an ultimate movie fan, the DFW Alamo is putting on their first ever Dismember the Alamo event. Four horror films showing back-to-back and you won't know what's coming up next. Dismembering begins at noon. If you think you're up on your Ghostbusters trivia, Geeks Who Drink will have a special trivia event at 8 p.m. You must have a ticket for this event. 

Sunday, October 26th

Alamo Drafthouse: As part of their honoring Universal monsters during the month of October, THE MUMMY will show at 12:30 p.m.

The Texas Theatre: For my pick of the week, I'm choosing this awesome movie event. There's something fun and nostalgic-esque about drive-in theatres, and The Texas Theatre is putting on a shown the Dallas Design District. THE BIG LEBOWSKI will show at 7:30, but you must have tickets to go to the event because seating is limited.
