This month, other cities around the U.S. are getting a taste of what Austin enjoys all year long: Alamo's Rolling Roadshow outdoor movie setup, which is travelling around the country with the Netflix Rolling Roadshow tour. Austin Chronicle writer Marjorie Baumgarten has a lovely, touching essay in this week's issue about her personal experiences watching Rolling Roadshow films at Monument Valley. Meanwhile, Austin still has a great lineup of special screenings and movie events.
- The Sinus Show has picked an easy target to mock this month: Keanu Reeves on a surfboard. The Sinus guys will be adding their humorous commentary and skits to Point Break at Alamo Downtown on Friday and Saturday nights for the next three weeks.
- The Paramount's Summer Film Classics offers a variety of films this week: Bye Bye Birdie and Giant (these are not a double-feature) on Saturday and Sunday, a French gangster double-feature of Touchez Pas Au Grisbi and Classe Tous Risques on Monday and Tuesday, and Black Orpheus on Wednesday. The Paramount has new or restored prints of most of these movies.
