Along with the usual first-run feature film fare, Austin theaters are showing two documentaries as part of their daily lineup. Cowboy del Amor (shown above), which won documentary and audience awards at SXSW in 2005, will screen all week at the Dobie as part of the ongoing AFS@Dobie collaboration. And the documentary Metal: A Headbangers Journey is screening nightly all week at Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar.
- Free coffeehouse movies: Austin Java is showing Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie tonight (3/24) at 8 pm. Ventana del Soul will show the 1986 version of The Fly on Monday 3/27 at 7:30 pm.
Lyric Opera is celebrating film on Saturday 3/25 with an evening of opera-related film clips (from movies like
Moonstruck and A Room with a View) and live music from White Ghost Shivers. Sounds like fun ... but
at opera-ticket prices, not movie-ticket prices, unfortunately.
