  • Spirited Away

    A young girl is trapped between the real and the ghost worlds in this classic animated Japanese film that filters Western fantasias and Eastern-angled spookiness through an outré sensibility. Read a full review of Spirited Away.

    1:30PM and 4:30PM, Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz, 320 E. Sixth

  • Bill Paxton Memorial Screening: Weird Science

    In this prescient John Hughes comedy, two nerdy teen boys create the woman of their dreams – except in Hughes' world, dreams are never wet and girls are always pretty in pink.

    10:15PM, Violet Crown Cinema, 434 W. Second

    • It's … it's … HIDEOUTRAGEOUS!

      There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you the Threefer and Free Fringe of improv, and you can check out that fancy-ass Big Bash and more on Friday, and cheer for your favorite champions in the hotly contended Theatresports Tournament on Saturdays, right after the time-looped Rewind and right before the more well-baked lightly breaded Maestro. $5-15

      The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress, 512/443-3688

    • Neva

      Now here's a highly political play for these highly political days, as Theatre en Bloc's Jenny Lavery directs this Guillermo Calderon drama that uses two distinct revolutions – Russia's and Chile's – to explore the importance of art in turbulent times. And maybe you'll love this show as much as the Chronicle's Elizabeth Cobbe did. Through March 5. Thu.-Sun., 8pm

      Santa Cruz Center for Culture, 1805 E. Seventh, 512/522-4083

    • Davis Gallery: Kindred Spirits

      You know what's generally good? Paintings that are photorealistic. You know what's even better? Photorealistic paintings of urban scenes – especially familiar urban scenes from right here in Austin. You know what's just about perfect? When an exhibition of photorealistic paintings of familiar urban scenes features work by Daniel Blagg and David Leonard. So, this show? It's like we won the goddamn aesthetic lottery, isn't it? Answer: yes. Through April 8

      Davis Gallery, 837 W. 12th, 512/477-4929
