"World of Tomorrow"

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. Ends Oct. 6.

12:30PM and 2:30PM, Texas Spirit Theater at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, 1800 Congress

  • Texas Teen Book Festival

    Getcher YA-YAs out, we might suggest, in the sense that YA of course refers to Young Adult, a marketing term used by booksellers, a marketing term that some folks insist means novels that usually aren't as fucking boring as regular adult novels, and so where else will you be this Saturday? Unless you're enrolled in Hogwarts and can't skip that Dark Arts class; unless all of Panem is riveted to your every gambit of survival; unless you're anxious about missing the latest episode of Oh? Wow! Thing!, citizen reader, this is where you'll be. Sat., Oct. 1, 10am-5pm

    St. Edward's University, 3001 S. Congress, 512/448-8400

  • The Back Pack

    Frankly, we love these non-speaking sketch clowns, the fierce foursome – Pete Betcher, Katie Kohler, Justin Morley, and Jeremiah Rosenberger – who've been wowing crowds at Fronterafest and the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival with their endlessly inventive, high-energy capers, and who now offer this evening of short pieces from their repertoire (with several new additions) in their own venue. Through Oct. 2. Fri.-Sun., 7:30pm, $15

    The Back Pack Co-Lab, 2400 E. Cesar Chavez #206
