The Local Haps: July 28th - August 3rd

It's a relatively light week in terms of special screenings, but nevertheless there's some good stuff here. Go to Wednesday for my Pick of the Week screening!

Monday, July 28th
Alamo Drafthouse: The amazing bluegrass Odyssey retelling by the Coen Bros, OH, BROTHER WHERE ART THOU? is screening at 7:30 pm.

Tuesday, July 29th
Alamo Drafthouse: To be honest, I've never seen the classic BLUES BROTHERS. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't at 7:15 pm.

Wednesday, July 30th
Alamo Drafthouse: PICK OF THE WEEK! After watching the Talking Heads concert doc, STOP MAKING SENSE at Oak Cliff Film Festival, I've been enamored by David Byrne's music. To hear that he directed a movie with both John Goodman and Stephen Tobolowsky, TRUE STORIES made me really excited. There will be an oral history about the production of the movie and it all starts at 7:30 pm.

Sundown at Granada: As part of their Whiskey Wednesday night, there will be a patio screening of the movie everyone and their mom associates with Dallas, ROBOCOP. The free screening starts at 8:30 pm, and then The Night Above Us will be playing after the movie.

Thursday, July 31st
Alamo Drafthouse: Once upon a time, Mike Myers wasn't just a pandering one-trick pony hack. He was a hilarious dude who made classic movies such as WAYNE'S WORLD at 8:00 pm.

Friday, August 1st
Angelika Dallas: If you missed BLUES BROTHERS earlier this week, then you can catch this as an 11:30 pm screening.

Saturday, August 2nd
Alamo Drafthouse: THE MONSTER SQUAD AKA "What I Wish My Childhood Was Like" will screen at noon. For those not in the know, the movie is about a group of kids who team up with Frankenstein's Monster to battle Dracula and other evil creatures.

Sunday, August 3rd
Alamo Drafthouse: One of the most badass movies of all time, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (aka the American SEVEN SAMURAI) will kick off the "Great Teams" theme of August at noon.
