Orlando Weekly Fall Guide

Hey Bartender, Enzian Theater


Fall is made for film lovers. The major studios release their Oscar-buzzworthy offerings, festivals feature the best of independent films, and October is littered with cult classics that make your spine tingle just in time for Halloween to deliver the slight chill Floridians look forward to all year. And fall 2013 is no exception, with family-friendly movies in the park like My Friend Totoro, recent comedies like Moonrise Kingdom, local filmmakers in the spotlight for the Enzian’s annual Brouhaha and an array of Shining-star horror films leading up to Spooky Empire’s Freak Show Horror Film Festival. So while we might be winding back the clocks, we certainly have a lot queued up to look forward to.
