NCM Fathom and TCM: To Kill a Mockingbird

This atmospheric Southern Gothic was adapted for the screen by Horton Foote from Harper Lee's prize-winning novel about a widowed lawyer with two young children who takes on the locally scandalous job of defending a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. Gregory Peck won an Oscar for his work, and Robert Duvall makes his screen debut as the mythic Boo Radley.

7PM and 2PM, Cinemark Cedar Park, 1335 E. Whitestone, Cedar Park

Arts

  • Women & Their Work: Violent Delights

    Ann Wood's fantastic art incorporates two- and three-dimensional pieces – entire taxidermied deer, for instance – into a rococo outcropping of landscape that references topiaries, floral bouquets, and pastry decorating. But, note: The death and decay lurking below the surface or hovering nearby is, you might say, more than just the icing on this complex cake. Recommended. Through Nov. 17.
