Summer Film Classics: The Third Man

Based on a story by Graham Greene, the movie is a noir classic set in a shadowy postwar Vienna. It’s one of Welles’ best-remembered roles, and the film’s now-familiar zither music sets the story’s ambiguous tone perfectly. (Double Bill: Citizen Kane.) Read a full review of The Third Man.

Austin Sketch Fest

Sketch comedy and nothing but sketch comedy all week long! (OK, maybe just a pinch of stand up, too.) Here are the best troupes and solo acts with the best material this town has to offer – spiked with a few comedy gangs bringing their stuff from Dallas and New York City and Los Angeles – taking over ColdTowne Theatre and the Hideout and Spiderhouse Ballroom with their arch antics, doing live what you usually only get to see onscreen. One Idiot! Your Terrific Neighbors! Magic By Death! Girls with Brown Hair! Master Pancake Theater! Patriarchy II: Fist of Extremism! More! Yeah, check the website, reserve those tickets while you can. Best bet: Get you an All-Fest Pass, citizen, and see, like, everything, right? Through May 29.
