Of course, the big Austin film buzz this week is about A Scanner Darkly, which opens today at Arbor. I'm waiting to see the film again until the July 15 screening at Alamo South Lamar, when composer Graham Reynolds will perform selections from the movie's soundtrack before the film. In the meantime, there are many other special screenings and events in town.
- The AFS@Dobie collaboration is opening The Death of Mr. Lazarescu in Austin this week. Dobie is also opening The King today. And the Arbor theater is bringing the documentary The Heart of the Game to town for the first time.
- The Goonies is playing Austin theaters again: this time at Alamo Lake Creek at midnight on Friday and Saturday and at noon on Saturday. Free Baby Ruth bars with admission.
