DRIVE-IN FILM: As we mentioned last week, the Steve Allen Theatre has teamed up with Hollywood MobMov to screen drive-in scary movies every Friday until Halloween. The screenings begin at 9 p.m. in the parking lot and in the theatre in case of overflow cars/crowds. Tonight’s movie is Demon Seed. “A self-obsessed scientist (is there any other kind?) creates a machine with a destructive libido.” The lot opens at 8:30 pm.
