Ironwood — Kick off November by attending First Friday events tonight from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in downtown Ironwood.

The Nov. 1 event is to be known as “Furry Friday” as H.O.P.E. Animal Shelter will bring shelter animals to promote awareness of the need for forever homes from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. The animals will be on Aurora Street, including dogs on the lot next to Mattson’s TV and Appliance, and cats at the entrance to the Historic Ironwood Theatre.

The Historic Ironwood Theater is screening “Young Frankenstein” as the First Friday Flashback Film at 7:30 p.m. The theater is located at 113 E Aurora St.

The 1974 Mel Brooks comedy-horror spoof stars Gene Wilder as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced Frahn-ken-schteen). When he unexpectedly inherits an estate in Transylvania, Frankenstein is compelled to continue his late grandfather’s infamous experiments.

The all-star cast includes Marty Feldman as Igor, Teri Garr as Inga, Cloris Leachman as Frau Blücher, Madeline Kahn as fiancée Elizabeth, and Peter Boyle as The Monster. Admission is free with donation at the door. The screening is sponsored by the local salon, About The Hair.

First Friday means that downtown businesses stay open later and there is a scavenger hunt with prize drawings and gift certificates. Northwind Natural Foods Co-Op at 116 S Suffolk St., will host a tea-blending event for patrons to learn the art of blending varieties of loose-leaf tea.

Cold Iron Brewing is hosting a Halloween Costume Party event with prizes and free candy from 7 to 11:30 p.m. at 104 S. Lowell St.

Theatre North will perform “The Skin of our Teeth” at 7 p.m., at the theater located at 825 N. Lake St. Tickets are $10. Directed by Helen Fashbaugh, the Thornton Wilder Pulitzer Prize comedy is “a testimony to human endurance and tenaciousness,” according to the promotional information. It’s described as “fun, evocative, and endearing, yet prophetic and relevant.”
