Polly's Picks

Oct. 2-31: In this Quadricentennial year, artists who draw their inspiration from the river and its valley are getting their due. Enduring Influence: Eight Painters Inspired by the Hudson River School, the exhibit on view this month at the ASK Gallery in Kingston, spotlights landscapes by Thomas Locker, Jane Bloodgood-Abrams, Keith Gunderson, and four other members of the so-called “New Hudson River School.” Reception Oct. 3, 5-8 p.m. Tues.-Sat. 1-6 p.m. • 97 Broadway, Kingston. 845-338-0331 or www.askforarts.org

Oct. 29: Just in time for Halloween: The Jacob Burns Film Center offers a scary science fiction double feature. First, catch the director’s cut of Ridley Scott’s Alien. Besides launching Sigourney Weaver’s career, this 1979 horror flick contains the hair-raising “chest-burster” scene (arguably one of the scariest movie moments of all time). Immediately following, watch Weaver battle more futuristic space demons in the 1986 sequel, Aliens. 5:15 p.m. $13. • 364 Manville Rd., Pleasantville. 914-747-5555 or www.burnsfilmcenter.org

Oct. 9: Having trouble getting your fill of reality TV? Then head to Albany’s Palace Theatre for a real-life glimpse of the Real Housewives of New York and New Jersey. Cast members Jill Zarin and Ramona Singer from New York, and Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo from the Garden State dish about their shows, their castmates, and what goes on when the cameras aren’t rolling. Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. $37.50-$77. • 19 Clinton Ave., Albany. 518-465-3334 or www.palacealbany.com
