Nitehawk Cinema’s Halloween movies to catch: ‘Silence of the Lambs,’ and other spooks

The Nitehawk Cinema, Williamsburg’s cinematic treasure, truly does Halloween right.

The dine-in theater hosts a robust collection of iconic horror movies, family-friendly fright fests and suspenseful thrillers over the next month-plus, a veritable clinic in the genres.

There’s “Beetlejuice” and “Ghostbusters”; the original Robert Mitchum-starring “Cape Fear” and the 1931 “Dracula”; Japanese gore-fest “Audition” and an entire overnight screening series of five films for one admission, lasting from late Oct. 29 through the morning of Oct. 30.

Besides the above, these are a handful of your best bets if you want to get into the spirit of the season in Brooklyn over the coming weeks.
