(Oct. 31) Mostly a treat

Happy Halloween! If you're looking to celebrate, but tired of the typical tricks and treats there's a different kind of creepy experience at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring. The cinema closes out its Halloween on Screen series with The Tingler tonight at 7. The tongue-in-cheek interactive film stars Vincent Price as a scientist who discovers a deadly creature growing on the spines of terrified humans. The Tingler is released live in the theater to roam around and make a mockery of your personal space.

(Nov. 2-Dec.11) The Golden Dragon
