The Halloween celebrations don’t have to end when the bars close and the candy stocks dry up. Nitehawk Cinema is running a horror moving marathon all night. Starting at midnight, you can catch “Evil Dead II,” “The Bride of Frankenstein,” “Friday the 13th Part 2,” “Dracula: Prince of Darkness,” and “Return of the Living Dead.” There will also be giveaways, trivia, and a costume contest.

Don’t worry, be happy when Bobby McFerrin grooves into the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts for a show titled “Bobby Meets Africa in New York.” McFerrin will apparently meet artists from Guinea, Mali, and Benin for the very first time on stage (what, he can’t take them out for a coffee beforehand?), and create an entirely improvised show on the spot.
8 pm at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College [2900 Campus Rd. between Bedford and Nostrand avenues in Flatbush, (718) 951–4600, www.brook
This won’t be an easy decision — but it will be a cheesy one. Cooks from around the city will lay the s-mac down at the annual Mac Off mac and cheese competition, and you get to try them all and decide which is the best. So use your noodle to separate the gouda mac daddies from the im-pastas.
5 pm at Littlefield (622 Degraw St. between Third and Fourth avenues in Gowanus, www.littl
Everybody loves a good underdog story! Theatre for a New Audience’s latest production is “Tamburlaine,” the Christopher Marlowe play about a shepherd who becomes king of half the world. Highly acclaimed actor John Douglas Thompson is starring in the title role and the play is being directed by four-time Olivier Award-winner Michael Boyd, so it sounds like a pretty safe bet.
7 pm at Theatre for a New Audience [262 Ashland Pl. between Fulton Street and Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene, (212) 229–2819, www.tfana.org]. $55–$100.
British comedy god John Cleese is silly walking his way to the Brooklyn Academy of Music to discuss his new book live on stage with comedian John “I’m a P.C.” Hodgman. What is the book about? Who cares — it is John freaking Cleese. Frankly, we’re appalled that there are still tickets left to this.
8 pm at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, BAM Harvey Theater [651 Fulton St. at Rockwell Place in Fort Greene, (718) 636-4100, www.bam.org]. $25 ($45 with signed book).
