"...More often than not, critics can walk out of the theatre with at least some semblance of what they're going to say already forming in their mind's eye, if not on their lips. Much of this ever-ready verbiage has to do with deadlines and other journalistic mindbombs, but more often than not I exit screenings with my bon mot pistol judiciously cocked, if not quite sighted..."
"...Best MoPac ExitWindsor..."
"...His odd obsession proved worthy when one night in 1962, after watching an announcement about the Cuban Missile Crisis, he hurries his pregnant wife into the shelter only minutes before the big blast. How is he to know that the big blast was actually a plane crash that destroyed little other than the plane and his suburban tract home? Fully cognizant of the half-life of nuclear fallout, Calvin has equipped his subterranean nest with 35 years of supplies and a time lock that precludes an early exit..."
"...His look proved him the thug we always knew he was. Most of the humor here was of the throwaway variety, bits on the fringes of the action or were tossed off without set-up: a team of burglars that stole in upstage and silently absconded with all the presents under the Silverspice Christmas tree; Herr Drosselmeyer offering to repair the broken Nutcracker, then turning his belt around to reveal a full assortment of tools at his waist, including a hammer, a hacksaw, and a hot glue gun; BA artistic director Lambros Lambrou as one of the party guests, haplessly wandering up and down stairs, from exit to exit, but never being able to find his way out of the house...."
"...But still, the liquor flows and the food courses keep coming. The kitchen staff has stolen all the guests' car keys, so as in any good farce, there is no possibility of exit..."
"...And in Colorado, ballots were collected but not counted, pending the outcome of a legal challenge. Exit polls, however, showed the measure passing, 58-42%..."
"...In 1961 Rod Serling penned a Twilight Zone episode entitled Five Characters in Search of an Exit. Although it's never been one of that series' most popular outings, the tale of five strangers trapped inside a giant cylindrical object with no means of escape and no idea how or why they're even there must have stuck with director Natali because Cube is virtually identical in more ways than one...."
"...Exactly what we are to make of the men's successive increase in age or their different warring nationalities is obscure. Perhaps the same could be said for the unstated motives of Badii, who never explains or justifies what had led to his momentous decision (although 90 minutes in that bleak landscape might be enough to drive anyone to the final exit -- it's not insignificant that Badii's gravesite is next to the only tree on the horizon)..."
"..."We made the alleys on the north and south sides of Sixth Street commercial loading zones specifically for the use of band people on nights when the street is closed - to use them as a way to load and unload their equipment in the clubs. Clubs are required by fire standards to have more than one exit, and that's usually a rear exit, and that's where they need to go."..."
"...While the storyline is more or less the same -- witnessing the mysteries of the human race, a celestial spirit yearns for mortal experience -- the emphasis in City of Angels is more on simple romance than lofty questions of eternity. Set in Los Angeles rather than Berlin, the film's first half appropriates a few of the visual and aural concepts of Wenders' work, although the sight of angels resting on a freeway exit sign, as opposed to perched atop the Reichstag eagle, is a less arresting one..."
"...Richard Linklater on the set of The Newton Boys photograph by Clark Walker Racing up I-35, we're at our exit in about 20 minutes. Right near the exit, we pull off the access road and onto a large field filled with cars, where we park..."
"...The bakery is half a block off the traffic circle around the Main Plaza and a block from the Comal County Courthouse. To get there, exit from I-35 at the Seguin Avenue exit and the bakery is on the right..."
"...It seemed like he never left. Once when I asked him where the exit was he said "What exit?" I told Joe that I was out of beer money..."
"...Event Horizon is an amusing foray into the cloudy realm of sci-fi/horror hybrids, if only because you can catch a glimpse of the occasional shamefaced parent leading a squalling and terrified tot out of the theatre and over to the slightly less gory Free Willy 3 that's unspooling next door. There were indeed several walkouts at the Event Horizon screening I attended, most of which were attributable to families who obviously had not a clue what they were letting themselves in for, though I suspect more than a few folks chose to exit thanks in part to Phillip Eisner's glaring over-reliance on horror show clichés and Fishburne's frightening and perpetually knitted brow..."
"...EXIT (Dublin, Ireland): Three brothers from Dublin (David, Judah, and Jon Merriman) and a couple of their friends make up Exit. Less than two years old, the pop/rock band is another in the long line of Next Big Things. (Maggie Mae's, 9pm)..."
"...The gallery's "Exit" sign provides another strange illumination. It glows red -- the only color in the black and white room -- and looks as if it has been intentionally mounted above a small house-shaped structure in the back of the gallery..."
"...Hay challenges herself similarly in the short piece that accompanies Voilá in her current performance. Exit is the first piece in her professional career that Hay has set to music..."
"...Getting to Central Texas' newest horse track is easy. From I-35 southbound, take exit 172 (which is actually in Selma; exit 173 is also an easy U-turn)..."
"...The cast has a good time, with some of the performances uncannily capturing the originals: Christine Taylor is a dead ringer for Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia on television, while Cole's cadence and delivery sound eerily like the late Robert Reed, who played Mike Brady, the architect who designed a house with only one bathroom for six kids. Special mention should also go to Smart as the lush living next door, who lusts after every Brady with a penis (her exit line to Greg and Peter about making a sandwich is inspired beyond belief), and to RuPaul, who works it as a junior high school guidance counselor who relishes teen angst..."
"...Starring: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Bill Pullman, Ross Malinger, Rosie O'Donnell, Rob Reiner and Carey Lowell. What is there to say about a picture hailed as “the date movie of the summer” that leaves you cold and running for the exit when all those around you are laughing their heads off? That you're having an off night? That your date is less than ideal? That you are right and the world is wrong? That the world is right and you're a mess? Vacillating between these conclusions, I haven't yet been able to pick the right one..."
"...“Noisy” is the word Siskel and Ebert used repeatedly while reviewing this movie and I can't come up with anything more descriptive. Kids are likely to exit not knowing what to make of this movie: there's nothing really likable about it, though there's nothing patently dislikable about it either...."
"...Exit 12 D: Mohammad Gorjestani After two tours in Fallujah in the Iraq war, US Marine Roman Baca came home a different person. To deal with the effects of war, Roman turned to an unlikely place, ballet...."
"...(Also, hey – don’t be an asshole about this. If you’re in a movie when the 24-hour window opens, kindly exit the theatre before you whip out your phone.) Read more about the SXXpress system here...."
"...But in the last six months, according to Zapalowski's email, "my partners and I have come to the conclusion that I should exit the business because of 'creative differences.’” Zapalowski confirms he is no longer a co-owner nor hairstylist at Hive Mind and said the business has since decided to put a stop to the entertainment portion. Hive Mind Hair Co..."
"...Bonnen's ascension to speaker wasn't supported by all Dems from the outset. When former Speaker Joe Straus announced his exit after serving since 2009, among the names floated to replace him was Rep..."
"...8, to be exact), the caverns of the Capitol will once again host a celebratory gathering of legislators, families, and supporters with the formal opening of the 86th Texas Legislature. It's a notoriously slow-starting circus, and the donkeys and elephants (and their attendant lobbyists) will spend a couple of months jockeying for position before the serious legislating reaches exit speed..."
"...We already have Koenig/Highway 290/Allandale/Northland/Bull Creek Road/RM 2222, and we have a whole set of streets named South First through South Seventh that run perpendicular to First through Seventh streets. What we could do is change one-quarter of Manchaca Road to Menchaca Road, one-quarter to Maenchaca Lane, one-quarter to Minchaca Parkway *AND* continue to pronounce all of it "Man-shack." Maybe TxDOT would even change the spelling on exit signs on westbound Ben White but not on eastbound..."
"...APD Audit Complete: After a week of radio silence, Austin Police finally confirmed: The Department of Public Safety is compiling the information discovered during their audit of the police department's sexual assault case clearance rates. Though an exit briefing was expected by Dec..."
"...Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Fort Worth prints money but also has a museum on the history of currency. Once you've taken the free tour, exit through the gift shop..."
"...Had a bad year? Local noir combo Mr. Lewis & the Funeral 5 spent 2017 suffering the deaths of two significant others, a divorce, and the exit of half the group..."
"...Widespread Google Walkout: Coordinating with actions across the globe, dozens of Google Austin employees walked out of their offices last Friday to protest the way the tech company handled a recent sexual harassment scandal. The company is said to have protected top executives accused of sexual misconduct, including former executive Andy Rubin, who was provided with a $90 million exit package upon his departure in 2014...."
"...Despite these reasons for future worry, the 2019 ACA exchange market in Central Texas appears to be stable. Kori Hattemer, head of the Insure Central Texas program at local nonprofit Foundation Communities, says the four insurers on the exchange last year are all back – Blue Cross Blue Shield, Ambetter, Oscar, and Sendero Health Plans, which decided not to exit the market in September after public outcry ("Sendero's Path Forward," Sept..."
"...Her sentiments made some onlookers clutch their loved ones, so she continued to serenade the assembly with lowly, stream-of-consciousness ballad “Mary.” The band thanked the crew and the audience before walking away, but the fuzzy riffs floated in that space long after their exit...."
"...Best Lines: "Exit light/ Enter night/ Take my hand/ We're off to Never-Neverland."..."
"...Getaway Plan: ACL Fest has added a fourth exit, on the east side of the HomeAway stage, so you can get the hell out of the park faster at the end of the night...."
"...How I Hope to Die, a tripartite piece, fills a wall with the artist's preferences for her final exit in pop-up-style patterned paper and pom-poms. "Alone if possible." "Quick and quiet." "With my mouth shut tight." The words are sprawled in painstakingly push-pinned black pom-poms..."
"...With its exit, Austin loses two great stages, indoors and outside. Just last night, the former hosted a packed HAAM Benefit Day concert with longtime Armadillo/Threadgill’s favorite Marcia Ball..."
"...Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo is on the southern edge of New Braunfels on the I-35 frontage road, at exit 183. It's open daily from 10am to 6pm most of the year and until 7pm during the summer...."

"..."Which had never been done in a deliberate and systematic way before. They have a lot of knowledge of what leads to homelessness and what allows you to exit, and why a lot of people do fall back into it..."
"...Her exit opens the door for Bobby Levinski, Rich DePalma, or Paige Ellis to assume leadership of the district. The three all come to the campaign with varying credentials and years of City Hall experience, though their platforms as liberal environmentalists had led to speculation that their votes might cancel each other's out, and Troxclair would cruise to victory..."
"...In addition to food, shelter, and basic needs for new immigrants and asylum seekers, the two East Austin organizations coordinate health and legal resources, advocates, educational and ESL classes, tutoring and homework help, and activities to uplift this vulnerable population and help residents "navigate the confusing social service system and make an exit plan."..."
"...Southern Heights – Where’s My Flannel Pub Ale | England: This is England’s most reserved – yet perhaps most congruent – squad in ages, and WMF reflects that subtle charm in a 4.9%, sessionable, extra special bitter. Truly, most fans of the Three Lions already realize that they will have to keep it light and bitter after their inevitable quarter final exit by penalties...."

"...Sidewinder closed last Thursday, but operators are optimistic 715 Red River will soon host another music venue. The business suffered when, a week before South by Southwest, fire marshals dropped the long-held patio capacity of 239 to 49 based on new interpretations of what they considered an exit..."
"...Five or six hours later, after only cursory examinations and as his condition continued to deteriorate, Rawney was prescribed a sedative, told to go home and rest, and then consult his primary care physician. He left the hospital in a wheelchair – he could no longer walk to the exit door, and when he spoke to Van Boven on the phone that evening, he couldn't lift his arms or move from his couch...."
"...Using a robot, officers blasted the duplex's door open, which eventually led to the suspect and a woman running from the home. During the course of their exit a SWAT officer shot and killed the suspect..."
