The Local Haps: December 15th - December 21st

Leading up to the holidays, we all get pretty busy between parties and get-togethers and trips to the hell that is a mall during this time. But if you do happen to find some time, why not check out some of these special screenings? Check them out after the break.

Monday, December 15th
Alamo Drafthouse: One of the best movies in director Tim Burton's filmography,  EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, screens at 8:00 pm

Angelika Dallas: EXPELLED FROM PARADISE is an original full-length anime directed by Seiji Mizushima from Full Metal Alchemist fame. It's got a cool premise, which you can check out below: With Earth left in ruins following the Nano Hazard, most of humanity has abandoned the planet they once called home and rebuilt their digitalized minds into a society within the cyber universe of DEVA. But when DEVA’s central council detects unauthorized access of their mainframe, System Security Third Officer Angela Balzac is dispatched to the Earth’s surface to make contact with a local agent and uncover the hackers.

Sundown At Granada: Tonight marks the last installment of the Whiskey Wednesday movie nights with ELF. As always, the screening is free, and whiskey is half off but make sure to consult with Pete Delkus to see how cold it might be since it's an outdoor screening! Also, make sure to get there

Thursday, December 18th
Texas Theatre: EVENT OF THE WEEK! The movie that everyone thinks of when they think of Dallas movies, ROBOCOP will screen in a beautiful 35mm print at 7:30 pm. Given recent events, the satirical and allegorical aspects of the movie should be even more obvious.
