The only thing scarier than the Halloween costumes you saw out partying last night is the hangover you woke up with this morning. What's the perfect cure for that feeling? Movies at the film festival, of course! (And also Advil.)

It may seem curious to us now, but at the height of the Cold War, the Milwaukee area was ringed with defensive missile sites. One was in Cudahy, where three of the installation's buildings still stand and are currently home to the Kelly Senior Center.

Leo Minor is a relatively faint constellation up in the northern sky that comprises an array of 37 distant stars. Closer to home Leo Minor is a nom de bass of local veteran musician Jason Todd.

German director Christian Petzold's Cold War drama "Barbara" may have taken its sweet time getting to Milwaukee, but considering its hushed power and emotion, it's better late than never.
