Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday): E.T., The Neon Demon, Free Sacramento Horror Film Fest

Just a couple more hours and then it's the weekend again! And there are some pretty cool events going on. First and foremost, we're getting a new horror movie in theatres today, and it's a good one in my opinion. Black and white Kubrick movies are still playing at the Yerba Buena Theatre, and there is a free screening of The Goonies happening in the east bay. And if you're up for a bit of a drive, there is a free horror film festival going on all weekend in Sacramento. It sounds like the road trip will be very worth it, as they have a ton of stuff going on! Click the link at the bottom of the article to find out more. But first, check out this weekend's lineup!
