The movies start off tonight with Evil Dead at my new favorite theatre, The Redford Theatre. Not only do you get to see the Sam Raimi classic at the original theatre it opened at, but the makeup and special effects artist for the movie, Tom Sullivan, will be there to answer questions and introduce the movie. You can't go wrong with it since it only costs $5!
The Redford continues the classics on Saturday with a Buster Keaton double feature. They will be showing the short "Haunted House" and then "The Cat and the Canary." These silent films should be a good mix of spooky and funny. Saturday night will be $12 for both movies and will start at 8 p.m. with the awesome organ music. Trust me, he plays some good stuff!
I've been waiting for the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak to play The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and they are finally doing it this weekend. They will have midnight showings tonight and Saturday night for $7. If you've never been to a theatre to see Rocky Horror Picture Show, you're missing out on SO much. So brush up your Time Warp dancing skills and get your butts over there this weekend. Oh, and dress up while you're in the mood. Halloween is the perfect excuse to finally bust out that corset you've had stowed away. If Tim Curry can do it, so can you!
Just to get you in the mood:
