Little Shop of Horrors in 35mm 

From the event description:

Musicals are often at their best when they take on unexpected subject matter. Sure, we’ve all seen musicals about couples who meet cute and fall in love. But how many musicals have we seen about alien bloodsucking plants that require their owners to find victims they can chop up and feed limb by limb to said plant which also happens to have a dynamite singing voice?

When: Friday, Sept. 20, 11:59 p.m.- Saturday, Sept. 21, 2 a.m.
Where: Vista Theatre, 4473 Sunset Drive
Price: $12.75 - $36.75

The Silent Treatment Film Series: Greed (1924)

From the event description:

Considered one of the greatest silent films ever made, Von Stroheim's eight-hour long masterpiece was cut substantially by the studio against his wishes. With its story of murder, passion and lust for gold, the morality tale at the heart of "Greed" captures the dehumanizing impact of money. 

When: Saturday, Sept. 21, 2-4 p.m.
Where: Autry Museum of the American West, 4700 Western Heritage Way
Price: Free - $14

'The Nightmare Before Christmas' in 3-D With 4-D Sensory Effects

From the event description:

No October would be complete without settling in with a bag of popcorn to watch Tim Burton's stop-motion feature film "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Pumpkin King Jack Skellington longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere. Jack's adventures pop off the screen in Disney Digital 3-D, as Halloween Town comes alive with the help of special 4-D sensory effects, including lights, fog and scents, "plus" more wind and snow than ever before!
