Something Witchy: In partnership with Indy Film Fest's Roving Cinema, the IMA hosts two screenings of Blair Witch Project in 100 Acres. The second 10 p.m. show is already sold out, but (as of press time) a smattering of tickets remains for the 7:30 p.m. screening.
Cost: $10 + processing fee, tickets available online.

Saturday, Oct. 25

See Sammy Terry: The Historic Irvington Halloween Festival's street fair features entertainment, food, vendors and the Black Acre Beer Garden on E. Washington Street. from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. This year's special Master of Ceremonies is Sammy Terry. Well, not the original, but the just-as-terrifying sequel -- his son Mark Carter, who's taken over the cape and cowl since his father's 2013 passing. Did you really think a little thing like death would keep Sammy Terry from haunting your Halloween?
Cost: free to attend.

Bonus event: The Circle City Derby Girls host a coed doubleheader bout at Ellenberger Park at 5 p.m. It's a battle of Good vs. Evil -- all in costumes.
Cost: $10 per ticket, kids under 7 get in free. Tickets available online.

Dine at the BOO-fet: The Children's Museum of Indianapolis' haunted house is a Circle City October tradition for families, but you can take that experience one step further by attending a "Friendly Feast with the Witches" event. In addition to a buffet and a lights-on experience in the Creepy Carnival haunted house, parents and kids will be entertained by Ruditoonz.
Cost: $20 per person, $2 discount for members, tickets available online.

Monday, Oct. 27

Past the Little Ones' Bedtimes: Fans of cult classic American Movie know a lot about the making of Coven -- that's what the 1997 documentary is all about. But most haven't seen the 35-minute thriller. General Public Collective aims to address the situation with a 9 p.m. screening of the definitely DIY flick.
Cost: Free
