Knott’s Scary Farm features an amazing array of Halloween themed rides and shows featuring scary mazes and a “carnEVIL.” Because of the event, the park will remain open later than usual on most nights (Open until 1 a.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays with regular closing on Mondays and Tuesdays at 10 p.m.). Passes to Knott’s Scary Farm start at $39 for a one-night pass and $80 for a month pass (Note: This does not include the price of admission).
Passes- https://www.knotts.com/scaryfarm/tickets-offers Disclosure- Tuesday, September 29 On Tuesday, September 29th, British electronic duo, Disclosure, will return to Los Angeles, this time playing at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. They rose to fame in 2013 upon the release of their debut album, "Settle," featuring bass-heavy deep house beats on songs such as “You & Me” featuring Eliza Doolittle, “White Noise” feat. AlunaGeorge and the international hit, “Latch” featuring Sam Smith. Unlike many electronic artists who typically play DJ sets, Disclosure plays their music as a live set with one member playing on a drum kit and the other using a keyboard and computer with both occasionally singing. Tickets range from $16-$65 depending on the seat and the event is for ages 18 and up.
Food Trucks @ California Heritage Museum- Tuesday, September 29
Every Tuesday brings the Food Truck Bazaar to the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica. Varieties of food trucks shop up to show off their tasty creations, ranging from taco trucks to Indian food and much more. The event opens at 5:30 p.m. and closes at 9:30 p.m. and admission is free—the only thing you have to pay for is food. All proceeds made go directly to the Museum.
MacBeth @ Miles Memorial Playhouse- October 1-2
The last showings of MacBeth at the Miles Memorial Playhouse will be on Thursday and Friday, October 1-2 in Santa Monica. Considered one of Shakespeare’s greatest and darkest plays, MacBeth tells the tale of a Scottish general whose wife convinces him to kill the king of Scotland so he himself can take the throne. With a great young cast and only two shows left, this is a can’t-miss event for all theater and Shakespeare fans alike. Both shows begin at 8:30 p.m. and tickets with an SMC student ID are only $10.

"The Shining" @ Lola's Outdoor Retro Cinema- Saturday, October 3
The iconic 1980 horror film "The Shining," directed by the legendary Stanley Kubric, will have a screening at Lola's Outdoor Retro Cinema on Saturday, October 3. Based on the chilling novel by Stephen King, the movie tells a story of a man who decides to take his family and live isolated as the caretaker of a mountain inn in the Colorado Rockies for the winter and gets a scary case of "cabin fever". Along with the interesting plot comes beautiful cinematography and music from the genius mind of Kubric and a stellar acting performance from film legend Jack Nicholson creating an epic yet horrific masterpiece which will almost certainly give you nightmares. The makeshift "theater" is in the Sunnyside graveyard (yes, a graveyard) in Long Beach setting the perfect mood for such a dark film.
