Scary movies are more fun when the screams of dozens of others join your own. As Halloween approaches, here are three chances for big-screen viewings of chillers with a longer track record than the new “Carrie”:

† Live music on a vintage pipe organ accompanies a showing of “Nosferatu” (1922) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Carl Schurz High School, 3601 N. Milwaukee.

† See Mia Farrow’s original paternity mystery when the Logan Theatre screens “Rosemary’s Baby” (1968) at 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

† A restored version of the 1973 pagan-worship howler “The Wicker Man” opens Friday at the Music Box Theatre.
