[Cheap Thrills]

DILLINGER DO: The Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress St. guns it up with its celebration of the 1934 hotel fire and capture of the infamous John Dillinger Gang. The hotel lobby is the stage for stunts, chases, gunfire and lots of good-looking gangsters with two shows at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. Saturday, January 21. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for kids. Keep in mind those loud gunshots may scare the littlest of gangsters, though.

ORGAN DONORS: Get organized on your lunch hour every Wednesday. From 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. go over to the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 160 S. Scott Ave., and catch the only concert in town done on a pre-World War II pipe organ. Janet Miller will play on Wednesday, January 25, and if you can leave a donation, it will be used to continue restoration of this historical instrument.

WILD AND UNTAMED: Enjoy 100 minutes of horror spoofism when Janet and Brad encounter those Transylvanians in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

See it at midnight this Saturday, January 21. Adult tickets are $5.50, students and seniors get in for $3.50. For more information call 795-7777.

COMPOST IT: Take a ride up to the Oracle Center for Environmental Education from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, January 21, to learn how to build a bin, compost at the office and turn garbage into something great. The park entrance fee is $3 per person. Call 896-2425 for directions.
