Austin is chock-full of special screenings and film events this week, so let's just get right to them.
- This week's AFS@Dobie film is Sophie Scholl: The Final Days. The 2005 German film about University of Munich students during WWII will run all week at Dobie Theatre.
- Dude, Lebowski Fest is in Austin this weekend. Friday night's event includes live music and a midnight screening of The Big Lebowski, and Saturday night's main event features bowling (after sunset, natch) and other fun related to the cult-like film.
- One of the first times I was allowed to drive a car without a parent around was to see Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (my first Tim Burton film). Now Rolling Roadshow is hosting a benefit screening for Austin Yellow Bike Project on Saturday night near the Yellow Bike shop at 2013 E. 51st. If you ride your bike to the event, you get discounted admission and VIP seating. (If only Alamo Drafthouse had a basement where they could screen this film, that would be ideal.)
