Halloween is Monday, so a weekend filled with holiday-related activities is about to get underway. Click here to see our roundup of Halloween events all over the borough.

However, if dressing up as a zombie or going door-to-door in search of candy is not on your agenda, there are still things to do. The Museum of the Moving Image, which is holding a gala Salute to Warren Beatty Wednesday, is showing his Academy Award-winning “Reds” Saturday at 2 p.m. The film features the actor/director alongside Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Maureen Stapleton and a cast of historical figures including Adela Rogers St. Johns, Will Durant and George Jessel. There should be enough posturing and posing among those up on screen to satisfy even the most demanding armchair trick-or-treater. For more information call (718) 777-6888 or go to movingimage.us

The Day of the Dead will get an artistic spin at the Queens Theatre Saturday and Sunday, as the Calpulli Mexican Dance Company celebrates the rich diversity of Mexican and Mexican-American cultural heritage through dance-based programming with live music. Their “Dia de los Muertos” is a work about the unending relationship between the living and the departed featuring live music, larger-than-life characters and breathtaking dance. Performances are on Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25. For details, go to queenstheatre.org/content/calpulli-mexican-dance-company

Music fans will have a chance to get up close and personal with performers at Flushing Town Hall this Friday night, as the New Music Horizons Collaborative Artists in Concert Series presents classical pianist Matthew Koraus and jazz bassist Mark Wade. Each musician will perform a set of original music and explain their writing process. Afterward, audience members will be invited to talk informally with the composers. Things get underway at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10, free for members and students. For more information, call (718) 463-7700 x222 or go to flushingtownhall.org
