Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday): The Beyond, Tarantino Weekend, San Jose Super Toy Show

There's surprisingly little horror screening in the bay area this weekend, but there are still a good handful of classics. The Balboa Theatre will be showing Quentin Tarantino's films all weekend, the Clay Theatre will be showing Aliens as their Midnight Madness movie tonight and tomorrow, and the Alamo Drafthouse will be starting the weekend off with a screening of The Beyond, accompanied by a live score! And if you're looking for a way to spend the day, might I suggest the San Jose Super Toy Show? Special guests can be found below, so keep scrolling.
