    Pandora's Box (1928)

    In the Greek legend of Pandora, all the ills of the world were unleashed when she opened her forbidden jar, and all that was left was that most precious and fragile of forces – hope. That’s sort of the story of Pandora’s Box. Reviled and censored on release, film fans and historians long hoped that it would be restored and reevaluated. Now the tale of Lulu, a libertine, and her sexual exploits across a repressive Europe, is seen as a masterpiece of Weimar cinema, most especially in the tension between Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s post-expressionistic directorial style and an eternally captivating and haunting performance from Louise Brooks, the American star who beat out Marlene Dietrich for the part. – Richard Whittaker

    Watermelon Woman + Irma Vep

    Celebrate sapphic season with one of the best-programmed double features from Paramount’s Summer Classic Film Series. The Watermelon Woman, a wry, cerebral romp from pioneering Black lesbian filmmaker Cheryl Dunye, follows Dunye as an indie filmmaker on a quest to biographize a Black actress from the 1930s and Forties who made a career playing “mammy” characters. Outside of that arc, Dunye dates an insufferable white lady she meets at her video store day job; racial politics and funny hijinks abound. Next up is Irma Vep, Olivier Assayas’ ode to the magnetism of Maggie Cheung, who plays a Hong Kong action star on a melodramatic movie set. If you’re into “blasts of silent cinema, martial arts flicks, and the music of Sonic Youth and Ali Farka Touré” – or Nineties Maggie Cheung – treat yourself to a “hallucinatory swirl of postmodern cool,” as the Paramount puts it. All in all, a crazysexycool time at the mooovies. – Lina Fisher

    Movies in the Park: Jaws (1975)

    Maybe you’ve been to a screening of Jaws on the lake, where divers swim under the water ready to give floaters a “bite”? This screening put on by the Austin Parks Foundation and the Museum of Ice Cream is bound to be just as cool but a little less scary, held at Austin’s oldest public pool instead of a murky lake. Cornucopia will bring 100 bags of free popcorn, and the film will begin at dusk. – Kat McNevins
