Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Fri., Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m.
,

John S. Robertson's silent film adaptation of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde was produced in 1920, long before the advent of computer-driven special effects. And yet that doesn't preclude the film from being effectively frightening, thanks to the acting technique of star John Barrymore. "The Great Profile" turns in amazing performance without speaking a word, relying on posture and facial expression to play two sides of the same man: one tremendously good, and the other absolutely evil. Barrymore is almost unrecognizable as Hyde, aided by a lank and greasy wig and prosthetics to make his head pointed and his fingers lengthened. Even with its barely 50-minute run-time, the film leaves a lasting impression. The Webster Film Series presents Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde at 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 20, at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Cinematic band the Invincible Czars performs its minimal soundtrack for the film during the screening. Admission is $10. $10

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Starts Oct. 20. Fridays, Saturdays, 11:55 p.m. Continues through Oct. 28
, ,

Just like Christmas trees in December and Uncle Sam/Betsy Ross erotic cosplay in July, you can't celebrate Halloween without indulging in The Rocky Horror Picture Show sometime in October. The film moved past "cult classic" status once it entered the Library of Congress' National Film Registry in 2006, making it officially a bona fide classic. Richard O'Brien's immortal love story tells the tale of decent American couple Brad and Janet (a couple of squares) who break down on the road and seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter on the same night he's about to bring his greatest, most virile creation to life. There's very little horror (unless you're terrified by alternative lifestyles), but a whole lot of singing about what's hot and being brave enough to live out your dreams. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is shown at 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday (October 20 to 28) at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.landmarktheatres.com) as part of the Reel Late series. The Samurai Electricians returns to perform the essential role of "shadow cast," which recreates the movie while it screens. Tickets are $10. $10

Le Corsaire

Sun., Oct. 22, 11:55 a.m.
,

Conrad is a pirate who washed ashore with some of his crew after a shipwreck. A group of Greek women find them, and Conrad falls in love at first sight with Medora, one of the young women. Things are definitely on the upswing for Conrad, but Lankandem the Turkish slave dealer appears on the scene and absconds with Medora and her friends. Conrad and company then embark on a brave rescue mission, which requires him to conquer deception, disguises, betrayal and reversals before true love can be won. Le Corsaire, the ballet adaption of a poem by Lord Byron, is a massive undertaking; The Bolshoi Ballet's 2007 production cost a reported $1.5 million to mount. The Bolshoi returns with a live broadcast of Le Corsaire that uses Alexei Ratmansky's choreography (itself directly inspired by some of Marius Petipa's 1899 choreography). The ballet is simulcast at 11:55 a.m. today at the AMC Chesterfield 14 (3000 Chesterfield Mall, Chesterfield; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $19.55. $19.55
