Wait Until Dark. Audrey Hepburn is known for a lot—she won a damn EGOT, after all—but did you know she was in a horror/thriller? For Friday the 13th, the Fox Theatre is screening the spookiest movie she was ever in. In this 1967 classic, a recently blinded woman is stalked through her house by a group of criminals. Scary but fun! And as a bonus, this showing is in support of the Andra Heart Foundation. 6 p.m. Friday, July 13. 17 W. Congress St. $25.

Mamma Mia Sing-Along. If the aforementioned screening isn't quite scary enough, head on down to Casa Video for a real horror show. Before you race to the theater to see the upcoming Mamma Mia sequel, this is your opportunity to sing out the entire movie to your heart's content. It's really the only chance you have to do this in public and not get angry looks. 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, July 14. 2905 E. Speedway Blvd.

Nosferatu. How do you have a name like Max Schreck and not play as a horror icon? The Screening Room is having a little Halloween come early with a vampire film so comparatively archaic, its stills are part of our collective nightmares whether we've seen it or not. Nosferatu offers a chilling look at a forgotten castle devoid of all but cobwebs, an undead king, and any unlucky enough to wander inside. 7 p.m. Sunday, July 15. 127 E. Congress St. $7.

Jerry Maguire. Harken back to the '90s! A carefree time when all we were concerned about was Tom Cruise's sweet, unctuous bangs. Harkins Theatres invites you to one of the most iconic rom-com-drams of them all. There are pre-millennium ties, fat cell phones, and enough one-liners to get just about anybody wrapped up in the melodrama. 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17. 5455 S. Calle Santa Cruz.

North of Nightfall. Sonoran Desert Mountain Bicyclists and The Loft Cinema are teaming up for a premiere of the new Red Bull documentary on some of the most incredible biking trails in the world. High up in the arctic glaciers, cyclists ride over ice and snow, and wouldn't have it any other way. All proceeds support development of the 100-Acre Wood Bike Park. 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 18. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $10.

Wild Strawberries. Continuing their Bergman centennial, The Loft is screening the Swedish master's second great film. Wild Strawberries is part psychological drama, part road movie, part surrealism. It examines the memories, dreams, hopes and fears of an aging professor as he drives through the country with a rotating cast of characters. Since its debut in 1957, only a small group of films have so masterfully captured the abstract horror and humor of the human mind (Tarkovsky's The Mirror and Lynch's Mulholland Drive among them). 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 19. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Regular admission prices.
