Followed by the less well-received All The King’s Horses. The Peace Dale Library is showing All The King’s Men at 2 p.m. The event is free. This is the original 1949 version, which has a 7.6 rating on IMDB, vs. the 2006 remake, which only has a 6.0.
Ahhh spooky! The Courthouse Center for the Arts turns into the Haunted Courthouse at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10.
Courageous parenting at South Kingstown High School tonight. The second session in the Courage to Speak program – Courageous Parenting 101 – is tonight at 6:30 p.m.
Looking to watch the Presidential debate with others? The Pell Center at Salve Regina University in Newport is hosting a forum and viewing of the debate. Doors open at 8 p.m. and close at 11 p.m.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s International Stuttering Awareness Day. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

Hopefully, he is not watching you poop. Happy 60th birthday to Jeff Goldblum! While you might know him from his roles in Jurassic Park, Law and Order: Criminal Intent or Independence Day, never forget his own Internet meme.
