It's a holiday weekend/week, and some of us wish that local theaters held more special screenings on our days off next week. However, theaters seem to assume that people want to do stuff outdoors on July 4, so many ongoing film series are on hold for the week. Alamo Downtown will be closed on Monday and Tuesday.
A few theaters are celebrating the Independence Day holiday. Alamo Lake Creek is showing Red Dawn on Tuesday night. The Paramount is showing vaguely patriotic-themed films all week: Sergeant York and Pride of the Yankees on Monday and Wednesday, and Patton on Thursday and Friday.
- This week's AFS@Dobie collaborative screening is the film Lady Vengeance, which will play all week at the Dobie. Also opening at the Dobie today is Drawing Restraint 9.
- The Movies in the Park series has moved to Round Rock this month, and Friday night's film is The Wizard of Oz. The movie starts at sundown at Old Settlers Park and admission is free.
