  • Oct. 26: Last year's hit Pixar film Coco will return to big screens for a limited run at Hollywood 16. It'll screen at least through Nov. 1.
  • Oct. 26: Halloween favorite The Nightmare Before Christmas will return to big screens for a limited run through Oct. 31 at Amarillo Star 14.
  • Oct. 27 and 31: The Met: Live in HD series continues with Puccini's Wild West drama La Fanciulla del West, starring Eva-Maria Westbroek and Jonas Kaufmann. It'll screen live at 11:55 a.m. Oct. 27 and encore at 1 and 6:30 p.m. Oct. 31 at Hollywood 16.
  • Oct. 28 to 30: The Studio Ghibli Fest 2018 continues with the all-time classic Spirited Away at both Amarillo Star 14 and Hollywood 16. An English-dubbed version will screen at 12:55 p.m. Oct. 28 and 7 p.m. Oct. 30, with a subtitled version screening at 7 p.m. Oct. 29.
  • Oct. 29: The National Theatre production of Frankenstein starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller will return to theaters. The actors famously swapped roles throughout the production, and the 7 p.m. Oct. 22 screening will feature Cumberbatch as the Creature, with the 7 p.m. Oct. 29 screening featuring Miller as the Creature. Both screenings will take place at Amarillo Star 14, 8275 W. Amarillo Blvd. (I've now seen both, and I think I prefer the one with Miller as the Creature overall. Cumberbatch gives a phenomenal performance as the Creature, but his Victor Frankenstein is equally compelling; Miller's Victor wasn't quite as strong.)
  • Oct. 30: Christian singer Russ Taff's battle with alcoholism is charted in the documentary I Still Believe, screening at 7 p.m. Oct. 30 at both Amarillo Star 14 and Hollywood 16.
