Nearly everyone in Austin is recuperating from one aspect of SXSW or another, or from Spring Break. The hardcore film-festival survivors may not want to see another movie for at least a week, but everyone else might enjoy a nice relaxing movie in a theater or coffeehouse.
  • Free movies: Monkeywrench Books is showing one of my all-time favorites, Breaking Away, on Sunday 3/19 at 2 pm. Cafe Mundi is showing Murderball on Monday 3/20 at 8 pm. Ventana del Soul will screen Godzilla vs. Mothra on Monday at 7:30 pm. Rounders Pizzeria is showing two baseball movies on Tuesday 3/21: The Sandlot at 6:30 pm and Bull Durham at 8 pm.
  • After a sold-out screening a few weeks ago, Alamo is bringing Dildo Diaries back for a limited run. The South Lamar theater will show the documentary about Texas sex-toy laws nightly from Monday through Thursday, 3/20-23. I saw the movie earlier and while it didn't tell me much I didn't already know, I got a kick out of the scenes inside a toymaking factory. Also, the songs Annie Sprinkle sings over the closing credits are delightful.
