  • "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
