STAMFORD, Conn., -- The Avon Theatre is presenting a pair of movies just in time for Halloween.

The theatre will screen the "Rocky Horror Picture Show," a cult classic, that features an outrageous assemblage of the most stereotyped science fiction movies, Marvel comics, Frankie Avalon / Annette Funicello outings and rock 'n' roll of every vintage.

The movie will be shown at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Also, for those people looking for a scary movie the theatre is currently playing "Goodnight Mommy."

In a lonesome house in the countryside, 9-year-old twin brothers await their mother’s return. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before and the children start to doubt whether this woman is actually who she says she is. What ensues is a terrifying observational struggle with fatal consequences on par with the classic horror movie The Shining.

It is in German with English subtitles.

"Goodnight Mommy" is playing through Thursday at 7:40 p.m.

Ticket prices for both movies are: Carte Blanche Members: Free, Members: $7, Students & Seniors: $9, Nonmembers: $12. Purchase online at www.avontheatre.org

The Avon Theatre Film Center is located at 272 Bedford St. Call the Box Office at 203-967-3660.
