Five Must-See Movies in October

Courtesy of Disney and AMC
The way films come and go, in and out of theaters, usually it's easier to miss a movie than catch it. That makes planning ahead a must when it comes to moviegoing in the Valley. That's also why we've handpicked five must-see flicks screening this month to add to the ol' planner.

Monster Mash Up in 3-D @ AMC Mesa Grand 24
Halloween's a-brewing, and we're already ready to binge on candy and dress up. Thankfully, we can get into the spooky spirit a little early with a double feature of Tim Burton flicks Frankenweenie (think Frankenstein-meets-puppies and in black-and-white stop-motion) and The Nightmare Before Christmas (of which, in all unashamed honesty, we own a deluxe, box-set version that we watch on both Halloween and Christmas) in 3-D on Thursday, October 4.

Nightmare begins at 10:30 p.m. and Frankenweenie premières at midnight at AMC Mesa Grand 24. Tickets are $15 and include a limited edition lanyard.
