Preston & the Loaded Pistols and Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray. You can join the party at 8 p.m.

Oct. 31-Nov. 30: The Woman in Black

As the pair delves deeper into the lawyer’s darkest memories, the borders between reality and the imagination begin to blur. You can see this ghostly tale through November 30.
