If you're in Austin right now and you are a regular filmgoer, you are probably considering which SXSW films to see, since the festival starts tonight. Believe it or not, there are in fact a few non-SXSW events going on in Austin during the next week.
- Alamo Drafthouse at Lake Creek is showing the new indie feature Threat tonight (3/10) at midnight. Filmmakers Matt Pizzolo and Katie Nisa will introduce the film.
- Some Oscar-winning films are still playing in Austin, if you want to take the Academy's heavy-handed advice and see these movies in theaters. Capote is playing at Alamo on South Lamar, Arbor Great Hills, and Dobie. Walk the Line is still at Alamo Lake Creek. Syriana, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Good Night and Good Luck (which looks fabulous in a theater, even if it didn't win any Oscars) are playing at Barton Creek Square.
