MONSTER MAKEUP CLASS! Rather than watch fright flicks on TV, see 'em on the big screen and learn how to do that creepy makeup. In addition to screening horror films Saturday, Astoria's Museum of the Moving Image is offering tomorrow's "Movie Monsters and More: A Master Class With Special Effects Makeup Artist Mike Marino" ("Black Swan"), at 2:30 p.m. The $15 charge includes admission to any movie shown that day, including 7:30 p.m.'s 80th anniversary showing of "Frankenstein" with memories from guest Sara Karloff, daughter of star Boris Karloff. Full schedule at movingimage.us.
