Burgundy Lion hosts its annual Movember Shave-Off, with barbers from Monthly providing clean shaves for participants in the Movember moustache-growing fundraiser for prostate cancer — all profits from the event will go to the Movember Foundation. In keeping with the pub’s love of soccer, this 5à7 will also feature special guests from the Montreal Impact and an Xbox One FIFA 17 soccer tournament. 2496 Notre-Dame W., 5–8 p.m., free entry

Gonzo Café hosts a Halloween def jam with music from DJs Vincent Pryce and GrandHuit, live mural work by Marc Sirus and Snikr, barber services by Boeycutt, pumpkin carving, candy, costume prizes and more. 919 Duluth E., 5–11 p.m., free

It’s a longstanding tradition to screen the cult classic 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show on and around Halloween, with audience participation, live dancers and so on, but did you know that Montreal’s annual Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Ball is the biggest event of its kind in North America? Check out one of the two final screenings/parties of the Halloween 2016 season. Imperial Cinema (1430 Bleury), 8 and 11 p.m., $17.95/$19.95, discounts for students and groups

For the Halloween edition of their Monday Movies series, Plateau bar/restaurant and performance space Pompette screens the 1985 mystery/comedy Clue. Made in 1985 — before Hollywood started adapting video games into movies (Clue is based on the board game of the same name) — and starring the likes of Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd and Madeline Kahn, this will ring serious nostalgia bells for children of the ’80s and ’90s, but is worth a look regardless. 4128 St-Laurent, 8 p.m., free

Frankie Teardrop’s Halloween Benefit Extravaganza is an event being held for DJ and friend of the LGBT/nightlife scene, whose own party, LIP, is at the top of this list and who was recently the victim of a physical attack. Expect music by Cheap Wig, Vargas Intent (ie. Vile Intent with Chris Vargas on Vocals), Hand Cream, Grosser, Perverted Justice, Butcher Baby and the No Hope Mondays DJs. 4873 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $5/$10/PWYC
