There’s plenty to do this Halloween Weekend. Along with our Halloween Guide, our Weekend Music Picks and the last weekend of the season for the Hester Street Fair, here are a few more special events you might want to check out:
- Stop by the Midnight Movie at the Sunshine for some classic horror on the big screen. Director Tobe Hooper (the original Texas Chainsaw Masacre) and co-producer/writer Steven Spielberg’s Poltergeist is showing this weekend. “They’re here.” $9.99 // Fri. and Sat. at midnight // 143 E.
