Austin Public Library: Read-Watch-Talk: High Noon

A quintessential showdown caps off this enduring Western morality tale.

1PM, Terrazas Branch Library, 1105 E. Cesar Chavez

Fanboys and Elstree 1976

This double bill pairs Kyle Newman's heartfelt comedy about a superfan with terminal cancer trying to see Phantom Menace before he dies with a 2015 documentary about the making of the original Star Wars.

8:30PM, Blue Starlite Drive-In at Austin Studios, 1901 E. 51st

  • MysteryPeople: Good As Gone

    It's the debut novel from former Austin Chronicle columnist Amy Gentry – and it's a doozy. Rich in character, riddled with suspense, the sort of thing that literati will want to read and Hollywood types will want to option for film rights. Meet the author at BookPeople tonight, where she'll present her book and be interviewed by Brenner (currently of that aforementioned Chronicle, yes.) Thu., July 28, 7pm

    BookPeople, 603 N. Lamar, 512/472-5050

  • grayDUCK Gallery: Midas

    This year's "Eyes Got It!" winner Rachel Wolfson Smith presents her series of large graphite drawings, bringing medieval battles and fables into the modern age with stunning, monochrome beauty and power. "I interpret the allure and consequences of King Midas' wish as drawings of race scenes reminiscent of Renaissance battle paintings," says Smith, "and gold-leafed stars, like gilded icons, hovering in the night sky above expensive cars that lost control." We look on, thunderstruck – and reckon you will, too, citizen. Through Aug. 21
