Lubbock's Alamo Drafthouse (120 W Loop 289 Access Road) is a cultural gem. With a beefy schedule of classic and cult cinema in addition to blockbusters, it truly has not only something for everyone, but absolute favorites.

For those kindred spirits who realize the truth, that October is the best month of the year, the likelihood that there's a screening of your favorite movie is very high. There's spooky straight-up horror and tons of action. And of course, there's also a celebration of the day "he asked me what day it was."

Depending on what your favorite is, the screening may come in the form of a Movie Party, with props, quoting along, and a general party atmosphere. I'm looking at you, Rocky Horror fans. Or your favorite spooky time film may be a brunch with a special menu attached to the screening. There's also Graveyard Shift screenings which are, you guessed it, late at night. Oh, and Mean Girls, too.
