Calendar: Recommended


  • Cine Las Americas: Blood of My Blood

    Portugal's nomination for Oscar consideration is a story about the struggles of slum inhabitants against poverty and crime.

    4PM, Alamo Drafthouse Village, 2700 W. Anderson

  • Network

    This is a prescient, sharply drawn, and award-winning comedy written by Paddy Chayevsky about the depths to which one unscrupulous television station will sink. Totally and completely not germane to today's political climate forty fucking years later.

    7:30PM, Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz, 320 E. Sixth

    • The Acro-Cats Ambush Austin

      TWO SHOWS ADDED – at the ND. But, wait: Acro … cats? Yes, because Samantha Martin guides – and more often than not succeeds in guiding – her team of trained felines as they perform a variety of feats – pole-climbing, rope-walking, cart-pushing, ball-balancing, jumping through hoops, even getting their rock show on. You like cats, you'll probably love this traveling spectacle of Behaviorism + Kawaii. Bonus: A chicken, a groundhog, and two rats. Sun.-Mon., Nov. 25-26, 8pm. $18

      ND Austin, 501 N. I-35, 512/485-3001

    • The Collector

      Behold the weird wonders of Animal Cracker Conspiracy, a Henson Foundation-supported puppet troupe from San Diego, brought to the ATX by our own fiercest puppet masters (that's Trouble Puppet, friend). The Collector is "a multidimensional mixed-media performance viewed through Orwellian, neo-Victorian lenses … a detailed and gritty environment of toy theater, animated objects, miniature protagonists and antagonists, all unfolding in dialogue-less mystery, underscored by original film and constructed soundscapes." We ain't seen it yet, personally, but we're imagining the Quay Brothers working live. Hmmm? Note: Not for kids. Nov. 23-25, Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm.

      Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd., 573-2540
