Kick Off Halloween Week With a Movie at the Loft Friday

Posted By on Thu, Oct 23, 2014 at 11:00 AM





If you're getting psyched for Halloween (AND WHO ISN'T?), the world of Tucson film has plenty to offer you this week. First off, I'm not sure how anyone could possibly pass up the opportunity to see Jim Henson's "Labyrinth," starring David Bowie and a magnificent leather jumpsuit/codpiece combo, as part of their on-going Late Night Cult Classics series. Sure, you've probably seen the creepy tale of a 15 year old who wishes her little brother away and heads off on a quest to retrieve him, but how much better will it be on the big screen? The 1986 film shows three times over the weekend: Friday, Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 25 at 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets are $6.




If you've been waiting for an opportunity to share the joy of cinema with your dog (sure, ok), Friday, Oct. 24 is the night you've been waiting for as the Loft is screening Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie" outside. The evening kicks off with a doggie costume contest at 5:30 p.m. then the movie at 6:30 p.m., with food trucks supplying food for the humans in attendance and free dog treats for the canines. Tickets are $6, although I think the dogs are free, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Pets Are Worth Saving.



More info on those films and the wide variety of other on-screen options this week (including "The Internet Cat Video Festival 2014") at loftcinema.com.
