Cinema

HÄXAN w/ Bob Mitchell on the organ (1922) AT The Silent Movie Theater

Join us for an evening of transcendent strangeness as we present Danish director Benjamin Christensen's alternately horrific and hilarious 1922 pseudo-documentary about the history of witchcraft. Somewhere between a live-action Hieronymous Bosch painting and a painfully awkward session of Show-and-Tell, the vignette-style film features Christensen himself in the role of Satan. What begins as a dry instructional doc soon veers into mondo territory as Christensen catalogs ancient occult sordidness: nuns flip out, monks torture monks, flamenco-dancing witches make out with the devil. Häxan is acknowledged by most as the strangest silent film ever made. To be preceded by a shorts program and featuring live accompaniment on the organ. 611 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, (213) 480-3232 8pm

WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL
Walt Disney Hall Concert Hall holds its annual Halloween event tonight. Organist Clark Wilson will be playing the soundtrack for silent film classic "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" on the hall's pipe organ at 8pm.

IMAX

BATBOY: THE MUSICAL
Glendale Community College Auditorium Studio Theatre
1500 N. Verdugo Rd. , Glendale , 91208 818-240-1000 Ext 5618
Batboy the Musical is finally back!!! Who isn't obsessed with Batboy? "The musical differs in a few of its plot details from the Weekly World News portrayal of Bat Boy. In the musical, Bat Boy learns to speak from his adoptive family, yearns for acceptance and tries to join society, only to face hatred and violence from a town that fears him and jealous rage from his foster father. Although full of blood, violence, incest and interspecies sex, Bat Boy: The Musical has won several awards and rave reviews. John Lahr of The New Yorker observed that "this is the only play in the history of the theatre whose hero ends Act I with a rabbit in his mouth, and who moves on in Act II to an entire cow's head." October 19, 20th, at 8pm and the 21st at 2:00pm (Plus additional dates
