Cinemark to screen ‘Amityville 4’

Cinemark Hollywood 16 & XD, 9100 Canyon Drive, will host a special screening of “Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes” in time for the Halloween season.

The showing is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26.

There’s still evil up there at the old Amityville house. A group of priests gathers to quell the demon that has long plagued this lovely five-bed, four-bath Dutch Colonial full of old-world charm and lots of curb appeal.

BUT – the evil escapes! Which should have been made obvious by the movie’s title. And how does it escape? Like all evil does: by possessing a tacky floor lamp, getting sold at a garage sale and shipped to Los Angeles, where most evil household décor eventually finds a home.

Tickets for this special screening are $12.45 and available for purchase in advance online at

Cinemark to show double feature of ‘Invisible Man,’ ‘The Wolf Man’

Cinemark Hollywood 16 & XD, 9100 Canyon Drive, will host a 90th anniversary special Halloween weekend showing of Universal Monsters Anniversary Screenings “The Invisible Man and The Wolf Man Double Feature,” at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30.

The signature adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “The Invisible Man stars” Claude Rains as a mysterious scientist who discovers a serum that makes him invisible. Covered by bandages and dark glasses, the scientist arrives at a small English village and attempts to hide his amazing discovery. He soon realizes, however, that the same drug which renders him invisible is slowly driving him insane and capable of committing unspeakable acts of terror. 

In 1941, The Wolf Man introduced the world to a new Universal movie monster and the mythology of the werewolf was redefined forever. Featuring a heartbreaking performance by Lon Chaney Jr. and groundbreaking make-up by Jack Pierce, this story of a cursed man who transforms into a deadly werewolf when the moon is full has not only become a masterpiece of the horror genre, but of all time.

Tickets for this special screening are $12.45 and may be purchased online in advance at

CMA presents ‘That’s Not Tango!’

Chamber Music Amarillo presents “That’s Not Tango! Astor Piazzolla, a Life in Music,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6 at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts, 500 S. Buchanan St.

Astor Piazzolla – the man who revolutionized 20th century music with his Nuevo Tango – was as complex and unforgettable as his melodies. He took Tango out of the back rooms and brought it to the concert halls of the world. In “That’s Not Tango!” Piazzolla finds himself alone in a place resembling purgatory, haunted by his music as he struggles to reconcile the choices of his past.

Fresh from performances at Lincoln Center, this stellar group of performers presents the raw intimacy of Piazzolla’s music, combined with a sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, always surprising dramatic narrative that takes you deep into the soul of this legendary artist.

Featured musicians will be: Brandt Fredriksen, piano; Nick Danielson, violin; Julien Labro, bandoneon; Pablo Aslan, bass; Lesley Karsten, actor; and Sarah Meyers, director.

General admission tickets for this production are $40 and available for purchase online at

The Nazis killed her entire family. But she risked everything to share the love of Christ with them. Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years is the story of how God’s love transformed a hedonistic atheist into an inspiring example of Christ’s forgiveness. Sabina and Richard Wurmbrand sacrificed their own comfort and safety to serve those persecuted by enemies of the gospel and to boldly advance God’s kingdom—at great cost. Be inspired by their witness for Christ, and discover this powerful truth: Forgiveness is the heart of the gospel.

Tickets for this special screening are $12.45 and available for purchase online in advance at

ALT to present ‘Defying Gravity’

Amarillo Little Theatre presents “Defying Gravity” scheduled for Nov. 11-21.

This free structured look at the 1986 Challenger disaster places the teacher who died with six others as they hurtled into space at the center of an exploration of our need to reach beyond ourselves and dare the universe.

“Defying Gravity” artfully interweaves the past with the present and the lives of participants and bystanders, drawing parallels among painter Claude Monet’s artistic quest, the zest of the teacher selected to be the first civilian astronaut, the perspectives of her grieving daughter, the aspirations of elderly tourists who drive their Winnebago to Florida to watch the space shot and dream of hotels in space, the guilt felt by a NASA mechanic, and his girlfriend’s fear of heights.

Tickets for this production are not yet on sale. For more information, visit the ALT website at
