This weekend, Phoenix does  horror-comedy theater, a Mass Effect film, Nintendo rock, and more.

It’s a pretty crazy mix of things to get out and do, which tends to happen in October.

Thursday, Oct 4th

Sneak Preview of Red Sand [Phoenix]

Friday, Oct 5th

Cult Classics: Beetlejuice! [Tempe]
  • If you love striped everything, 80’s special effects, and Harry Belafonte, you’re in luck!
  • This classic Tim Burton film is back on the big screen with Cult Classics.
  • Starts at 9:30pm at the Pollack Theater.
  • (Anyone else remember the Beetlejuice cartoon?)
Rapture Horror Expo [Mesa]
  • Three days of horror to start your October with.
  • Guests, a zombie ball, and probably a few nightmares.
  • All weekend at the Mesa Convention Center.
  • Here’s their site, but bewaaaaaare… it automatically plays music.

Saturday, Oct 6th

MiniBosses’ 250th Celebration Show  [Tempe]
Monsters, Mutants, & Other Tales of Love [Phoenix]
  • Five short plays boasting “zombies, mutants, cyborgs, blood, guts, and lots of laughs.”
  • I don’t know much more than that, but I’m picturing Borg: The Musical.
  • The madness begins at 8pm at Space 55.
  • (Shows actually run Thurs and Fri nights as well.)

Have a great weekend, everyone! Share anything I missed, and be sure to stalk me on Facebook & Twitter.
