70mm at the Ritz: The Untouchables

Kevin Costner is at his best here as crime-fighter Eliot Ness in this David Mamet-authored film audaciously directed by De Palma. The film’s final shoot-out is a direct ode to Battleship Potemkin’s Odessa Steps sequence. Connery won an Oscar for his performance.

4PM, Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz, 320 E. Sixth

Featuring Julia Duffy-Dzubinski, Katherine Hodges, Magdalena Jarkowiec, Erin Lane, Rosalyn Nasky, and more. Fri.-Sat., Jan. 25-26, 8pm. $12 ($10, students)

  • Fronterafest 2013: Best of the Fest!

    Fronterafest's all over for another year, people, except for this Short Fringe: Best of the Fest part –and I'm glad to tell you that any night of this line-up is worth seeing, because you'll laugh, you might cry, you will be extremely fucking entertained at all times. [Full disclosure: I helped decide which shows got to be presented again this week.] And "Austin's Best Monologist" – it's true!Steven Tomlinson debuts his new "How to Use Evernote" piece in the Wild Card Bill. You'd best hurry, though, because these nights (and one matinee) of no-fail theatrical enjoyment are selling out so fast you'd think they were Tim Doyle prints or something! See website for full schedule details. Wed.-Sat., Feb. 14-16, 8pm.

    Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd, 512/479-7529
