Philip Slein Gallery
On Oct. 21, the Philip Slein Gallery presents an opening reception for their exhibition of the work of artist Vaughn Davis.

4/ “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”
The Tivoli Theatre
Continuing a long-standing tradition, the Tivoli Theatre hosts two midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Oct. 21 and Oct. 22.

Tickets are available for either night at $10 each.
