Lincoln Cinemas's five screens host a range of Hollywood hits, including popular blockbusters as well as 3-D features. The movie house also keeps the concession bar stocked with fresh popcorn and other light bites such as hot dogs and nachos, all of which can be washed down with soda, coffee, or laughter.
Recently opened after a complete renovation, CityPlex12 Newark fills its 12 screens with a schedule of first-run Hollywood hits.

The undead roam the corridors and exhibition galleries at the nonprofit Liberty Science Center, seeking out intrepid brain owners who come to enjoy an evening of trick-or-treating, crafting, costume contests, and other ghoulish delights. Class is in session at the Halloween Haunted High School as ghouls recreate terrifying scenes from horror films and elementary-school gym class. Visitors tiptoe into the Creepy Cafeteria, where zombie lunch ladies serve up delicacies fresh from the graveyard and a menacing nurse awaits those foolish enough to seek remedies for their fits of fear.
Abbey Theatre veteran Ray Yeates takes audiences on a guided tour of the Irish émigré’s psyche with an uplifting one-man performance set amid the Irish economy's stunning collapse. In this standalone sequel to his internationally produced In High Germany, acclaimed playwright Dermot Bolger reconnects audiences with Eoin, an expat back in the country of his birth after an extended stay in Germany. Armed with no more than his sharp wits and the stitching on his polo shirt, Ray Yeates convincingly transforms the intimate West Village stage into Dublin Airport for a riveting 75-minute performance. Making use of airports’ birthday-clown-like tendency to evoke existential dread, the play extracts an uplifting story of friendship and family from the midst of a late-night boarding area.

The Flying Karamazov Brothers explode with ramshackle percussion, frenetic footwork, and musically inspired jokery amidst myriad trademark juggling routines. The daffiness is dashed with danger as the kilt-sporting Brothers juggle an arsenal of hazardous objects in their signature act, "The Terror," while an element of impromptu excellence enters during "The Gamble," an act that involves the juggling of personal items procured from the obliging, applauding audience.
If your name were Aristotle, it would be hard not to be profound. Aristotle "Telly" Savalas––the actor who exuded '70s masculinity as TV cop Kojak––proves not to be an exception. The smirking, self-aware alpha male swaggers on stage to piano accompaniment in Who Loves You, Baby?, a retro lounge comedy show where Tom DiMenna embodies Telly's persona––complete with a bald cap, a holster, and a butterfly-collared shirt tucked into a leisure suit.
