FILM | Fright Nights: Black Eve and The Devil Walks Among You
It's a creepy Friday the 13th at the Projection Booth with a double bill of Ryan M. Andrews horror flicks Black Eve and The Devil Walks Among You. The world premiere of the new short film The Devil Walks Among You will be followed by the new feature Black Eye, in which a psychic wakes up at a party full of dead bodies and has to use her abilities to figure out happened. Andrews will be there with the cast and crew of the film for a Q&A to follow the film and there will be awesome giveaways. Try your luck at the Projection Booth!
Projection Booth (1035 Gerrard Street East) 8:30PM $10
THEATRE | Cabaret
Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, Cabaret is a dark musical about an escapist haven in Nazi Germany. The critically acclaimed theatrical piece revolves around the tales of the men and women living in the war era and the mix of booze, drugs, sex and music that engages them every evening when they visit the cabaret. Playing for a three-week engagement, this Adam Brazier-directed performance stars a large ensemble cast of Hart House actors, closing January 28th.
Hart House Theatre (7 Hart House Circle) 8PM $25 adult, $15 student/senior

Apocalypse meets art in After The End, an exhibit featuring the works of Canadian artists like Nathan Cyprys, Ryan Louis and Sophia Solaris who study doomsday images, iconography and theory through sculpture, painting, photography and mixed medias. 12 artists' work will be displayed at O'Born Contemporary for tonight's opening reception of the first annual emerging artist showcase, which confronts 2012-themed environmental and psychological implications of catastrophe. Expect to see broken concrete, discarded objects, corpses and abandoned cities full of darkness at this event.
