    Special Screenings

    Slacker (1991)

    Got that friend who keeps complaining that the movies are just too expensive these days? Why not get them back in the cinema with this special screening of Richard Linklater’s ere-defining trip through the high weirdness of Austin in 1989. Best of all – it’s completely free. The series continues with Wong Kar-wai’s warped view of romance in Chungking Express (July 31), screwball classic Ball of Fire (Aug. 7), and Sofia Coppola’s enigmatic tragedy The Virgin Suicides (Aug. 14). RSVP in advance; maximum of two tickets per request. – Richard Whittaker Read a full review of Slacker.

    Special Screenings

    The People’s Joker (2022)

    Oh, can you already hear the bells? Or is that a big loud bike horn being honked? Join director Vera Drew and the Joker – yes! him! the Clown Prince of Crime! – as they join in unholy matrimony before screening a 35mm print of Drew’s opus The People’s Joker. Part transition story, part Batman tribute, The People’s Joker is wholly a fair-use parody that is NOT illegal or worth writing an intimidating letter about. So come witness “the bond of eternal love and the fair use defense” at Mr. Sony’s Popcorn Picture House, fka Alamo Drafthouse, and make sure you follow the dress code. “Dress to impress,” reads the event copy, “that means: clown makeup, any form of cosplay, scantily clad outfits, pajamas, or dysphoria hoodies.” – James Scott Read a full review of The People’s Joker.
