Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday): Get Out, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3, Dark City

Happy Friday!! This always feels like the longest day of my week, but at least there's a nice weekend at the end of it. And on this particular Friday, I'm very happy to recommend a movie to you all... Get Out, which opens today and which most of the Overlook creatures saw last night during the early screening night, was a huge hit! I hope a lot of you see it today and over the weekend, and let us know what you thought! This is also the second to last weekend that The Lure will be playing at the Roxie Theatre. We were finally able to check that out earlier this week, at another sold out show, and it's also worth a watch. Both screenings this weekend are in the bigger theatre, so if you can make it out to the Mission area, I say do it! And the Castro Theatre is bringing out the big names this weekend; they'll be showing a 1987 flashback double feature of Some Kind of Wonderful, followed by Dream Warriors in 35mm!
Read on for dates and time!

Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean.

A loving couple, a few lost monsters and a sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania sing and dance through a campy, sloppy salute to horror movies and sexual liberation. Bring your sense of humor. And some toast.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)

Saturday 25th @ 10:30pm
Art House/ Horror (Rotten Tomatoes)
It's just another night at the morgue for a father (Brian Cox) and son (Emile Hirsch) team of coroners, until an unidentified, highly unusual corpse comes in. Discovered buried in the basement of the home of a brutally murdered family, the young Jane Doe-eerily well preserved and with no visible signs of trauma-is shrouded in mystery. As they work into the night to piece together the cause of her death, the two men begin to uncover the disturbing secrets of her life. Soon, a series of terrifying events make it clear: this Jane Doe may not be dead. The latest from Trollhunter director Andre Ovredal is a scarily unpredictable, supernatural shocker that never lets up.
