Flix Brewhouse (3236 La Orilla Road NW) ) is celebrating the release of the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody this Thursday night, Nov. 1. Ticketed guests receive a limited edition poster and other “surprise goodies” (while supplies last). Come early and grab a pint of Rhapsody Bohemian Pilsner, brewed just for the occasion. You can pair that with—prepare yourself for this one—the “I’m Just a Po’ Boy Steak Sandwich.” It’s available only to those attending the Bohemian Rhapsody screenings. To secure tickets in advance, go to www.flixbrewhouse.com/albuquerque/film-info/bohemian-rhapsody.
On Thursday, Nov. 1 (also known as All Saints Day) the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) celebrates Día de los Muertos with its final screening of the Disney/Pixar film Coco. The 2017 computer-animated hit tells the story of a young Mexican boy, forbidden by family tradition from becoming a musician. In order to unlock the mystery of why, young Miguel takes an extraordinary journey into the Land of the Dead to uncover his family’s long-lost secrets. Coco screens in Spanish with English subtitles. The event starts at 7pm inside the NHCC’s Bank of America Theater. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Tickets can be picked up at the theater box office starting one hour before showtime.

The Albuquerque Film & Music Experience is kicking off its annual fundraising efforts with the Spooktacular Night“mare” at the Museum. What makes it a Night“mare” and not a “Nightmare” or even a plain old Nightmare? Guess you’ll have to go and figure that out yourself. On Saturday, Nov. 3 the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science is hosting a 30th anniversary screening of Tim Burton’s 1988 horror comedy Beetlejuice at its DynaTheater from 7 to 9pm. Tickets are $10. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite dead film or music celebrities (no dead authors, evidently). The top three costumes will win pairs of passes to AFME 2019. Following the screening is the Night”mare” at the Museum After Party. Music comes courtesy of DJ Picazzo Stevens. A cash bar is located in the museum lobby, and CNM’s Street Food Institute truck will be parked outside. Dragon’s House of Horrors provides the seasonally appropriate decorations. If you are unable to attend the movie, after party tickets can be purchased separately for $15 ($20 day of show). The New Mexico Museum of Natural History is located at 1801 Mountain Road NW.
