First off, if you’re looking for haunted houses or less terrifying ongoing Halloween fun, here’s our guide to all that.

Hurry if you want to get tickets to this Halloween classic: an interactive showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the Esquire Theatre, 590 Downing St.

And, heads up, it’s not the usual midnight event. It’ll start at 10 p.m. Tickets are $9.50.


Another ticket you’ll want to jump on right now: a free Tim Burton double feature at The Studio Loft at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 1400 Curtis St.

They’ll be showing “Beetlejuice” and “Sleepy Hollow.” Doors are at 5 p.m., trivia will start at 5:15 p.m., “Beetlejuice” will show at 6:15 p.m. and “Sleepy Hollow” will show at 8 p.m. Register here.


If you’ve got a killer costume for your dog or just want to ogle and pet other people’s dogs, you’ll want to be at Denver Beer Co., 1695 Platte St. They’re having a dog costume contest from 5 to 8 p.m. 

The categories are best solo pup costume, best human-pup costume and best pup-pup costume. Prizes are $25 gift cards.

Of course, they’ll be serving pumpkin beer and treats for humans and doggos.


And if Halloween isn’t really your thing, you can hide out at the Bluebird Theater, 3317 E. Colfax Ave., where Alvvays is playing.

The show starts at 8 p.m. with Jay Som. Tickets are $20 and doors are at 7 p.m.
