  • 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.

    7:30PM, Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz, 320 E. Sixth

  • Videojoy

    Beloved Alamo programmer Tommy Swenson is moving, so enjoy this brain-melting farewell descent into the abyss. Safe travels!

    • 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

    • Texas Film Awards

      Austin Film Society's Texas Film Awards this year inducts into the Texas Film Hall of Fame actor Shirley MacLaine, producer Sarah Green, directores Hector Galan and Jeff Nichols, plus upstart Tye Sheridan. The event features red-carpet arrivals of the evening's honorees, presenters (like Michael Shannon and Rick Linklater) and other special guests, followed by a catered awards ceremony, music, and a lively auction, all of which benefits the artistic and educational programs of the Austin Film Society. See "The Texas Film Awards Celebrate the Maverick Spirit," March 3, for more on the proceedings. Thu., March 9, 6pm (2017)

    • 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
