Best Film Series

TIE: Paramount Summer, AFS@Dobie

For 31 years, Paramount's Summer Classic Film Series has been a tradition in Austin. Showcasing popular to obscure classic movies and foreign features in a classic theatre with a big screen and adult beverages, it's a great way to revisit old memories and make new ones. Also, this year the Austin Film Society debuted AFS@Dobie. In the tradition of Dobie, this three-month series shies away from the mainstream and focuses on documentaries, independent films, and foreign titles. All in all, two great theatres, two great series, and one great love of film.
