Sept. 29

Dead and loving it

October starts on Sunday, but get an early start on the month of horror with a midnight screening of “Army of Darkness,” the quotable, campy capstone to the “Evil Dead” trilogy, featuring zombies, evil twins, a time-travelling department store employee with a boomstick, and an evil book of spells. Hail to the king, baby!

11:55 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. at S. First Street in Williamsburg, (718) 782–3468], $12.


Sept. 30

Doctor’s orders

Nerd and “Dr. Who”–themed bar owner Andy Heidel launches his new drink guide “The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy,” a collection of science-fiction and fantasy–themed adult beverages with a party this afternoon.

Water colors

Lunar tunes

8 pm at Roulette [509 Atlantic Ave. at Third Avenue in Boerum Hill,]. $25 ($20 in advance).
