  • Summer Film Classics: Swingin' Britons of the 1960s: Casino Royale

    It's a spoof that went places even James Bond feared to tread. Huge and featuring an enormous cast of all-stars, Casino Royale has intermittent laughs amid crazy set-pieces – and a great Burt Bacharach score. (Double bill: What's New, Pussycat?)

    9:10PM, Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress

    • Wintersnow Snowinters

      New work by Pat Snow! New work by Matthew John Winters! Yes, it's Snow and Winters here at the start of another triple-digit summer. Technically interesting, naked-eye-level exciting, this explosion of portraits and more in a variety of mediums is so worth seeing, will totally brighten your day with what vivid images are possible right here in the ATX. (Bonus: Grab yourself some perfect eats just down the block, at Sway or Elizabeth Street Cafe or El Chile or Lenoir.) Through July 21.
