Last Monday at the Movies continues on Halloween night in New Westminster with David Cronenberg's Crimes of the Future.

A sci-fi horror film by David Cronenberg is coming to New Westminster for the next Last Monday at the Movies offering.

The Arts Council of New Westminster's film series continues on Oct. 31 — yes, that's Halloween night — with a screening of Crimes of the Future.

It's on at the Anvil Centre Theatre (777 Columbia St.) starting at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

The movie is set in a time where the human species is adapting to a synthetic environment and the human body is undergoing new transformations and mutations. It follows celebrity performance artist Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), who publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances, along with partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux)

Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, revealing a mysterious group with a mission: to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution. (Note: It's an R-rated film and most definitely not for the family crowd — who'll be out trick-or-treating anyway.)

Tickets are $10 general, or $9 for students and seniors. Pay cash at the door or buy online in advance.
