Pagan Art Camp @Beacon Arts
If you're one of the many grown ups who still loves to get crafty, you might want to head to Beacon Arts this afternoon for their Pagan Art Camp "Ghost Stories "workshop, a companion to a current art exhibit there. You'll create work directly with Ghost Stories artists and materials they provide. Explore the relationship of craft and fine art in the mysterious context of Halloween. 1-4PM \ $10 materials fee.
Ghostbusters @The Egyptian
"Who you gonna call?!" This is a rare chance to see the 1984 comedy-horror (okay, mostly comedy) flick Ghostbusters, and via a 70mm print, to boot, at The Egyptian. Directed by Ivan Reitman the film involves Para-hacks Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd starting Ghostbusters, a company trapping ghosts, spirits and poltergeists for money. Before long, the slightly inept Ghostbusters are called on to save the Big Apple from a supernatural fate! 7:30PM. [Tickets]

If that's you, you might want to put on your favorite carrot, banana, or tofu costume and head to Santa Monica to celebrate in the Veggie Pride rally and Parade. Rally is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., which will include vendor booths featuring LA's top veg restaurants, cruelty-free shopping, and nonprofit organizations. Eat, drink, and be merrily educated while enjoying music and entertainment, noted speakers and special guests, and other VPP festivities. The parade runs from 2-4 p.m. @The Victorian (2640 Main Street, Santa Monica)
