  • Gerrymandering

    Gerrymandering (2010)

    Not rated, 81 min. Directed by Jeff Reichert.

    Controvesy & Conversation: A Difficult Dialogues Program: Short of stuffing ballot boxes and outright fraud, gerrymandering is the most effective approach to the manipulation of elections. This film exposes the battles and, in particular, highlights overseen by Tom DeLay.

    Rated PG, 110 min. Directed by Tony Scott. Starring Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, Michael Ironside, John Stockwell, Meg Ryan, Tim Robbins, Barry Tubb and Adrian Pasdar.

    Austin Parks Foundation: Movies in the Park: Tom Cruise takes to the skies as a naval fighter pilot whose maneuvers on the ground equal his hotdog performance in the air. ER’s Anthony Edwards shines in this film, and current stars like Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins were low-billed newcomers when this came out in 1986.

  • "World of Tomorrow" (2015)

    Not rated, 17 min. Directed by Don Hertzfeldt.

    The IMAX theatre is shuttered until October while undergoing an update that will allow it to project 2-D and 3-D film with the new IMAX® with Laser technology. But the bonus is that, twice daily, Don Hertzfeldt's Oscar-nominated animated short film will screen in the smaller Spirit Theater. Check it out and you'll probably find yourself agreeing that Hertzfeldt was robbed by the Academy voters of his rightful statue.

    12:30PM, 2:30PM Texas Spirit Theater at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, 1800 Congress, 512/936-8746
