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]
- Mark Meer (Commander Shepard) stars in this locally made Mass Effect prequel film.
- They’re showing the final product to anyone who wants a sneak peek!
- Swing by the University of Advancing Technology at 7pm to check it out.

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.

Rapture Horror Expo [Mesa]
- Three days of horror to start your October with.
- Guests, a zombie ball, and probably a few nightmares.

MiniBosses’ 250th Celebration Show [Tempe]

Monsters, Mutants, & Other Tales of Love [Phoenix]
