  • 4K Restoration: Beat the Devil

    With a script by Truman Capote that was being written on the spot and a bunch of actors wandering about looking drunkenly for a plot, this barely coherent oddity has earned its spot as a Hollywood curio.

    • It's … it's … HIDEOUTRAGEOUS!

      Acclaimed house troupe Parallelogramophonograph, when they're not touring the whole damned world, rocks the boards at least once a week. 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 Maestro RAW and right before the more well-baked Maestro. $5-45

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

    • 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
