                          • One Direction: Where We Are Tour

                            After a crazy year filled with three Billboard Music Awards, six Teen Choice Awards, three MTV EMAs, two 2013 American Music Awards and a moon man for Best Song of The Summer at the 2013 MTV VMAs, they are back with another tour. They’ve sold millions of records, had a movie debut, and even have a new album this year called Midnight Memories that includes their worldwide hits, “Best Song Ever,” and “Story of My Life.”

                            One doesn’t usually associate Americana singer-songwriters with being gear nerds, but Austin Forrest can spar with the gnarliest of roadies. Using a looping pedal, Forrest lays down the rhythm section on the bongo and cajón, the song’s bones on the rhythm guitar, then shreds lead on top. Forrest loops three part harmonies to complement his tunes, challenging the role of the barside/restaurant patio crooner.

                          • the Godfather Double-Feature at Alamo Drafthouse

                            THE GODFATHER, One of the most loved, acclaimed and popular films of all-time THE GODFATHER feels just as fresh and groundbreaking today as it did in 1972. It made Al Pacino a star, it cemented Marlon Brando as the acting force of his generation and shed light on the unique and overflowing talent of Coppola. Coppola and writer Mario Puzo crafted one of the most emotional and complex studies of family, loyalty and morality ever put on film. Whether it's your first time or fiftieth experiencing THE GODFATHER you can't help but be moved by one of the greatest films ever made. THE GODFATHER, PART II, A completely different film from its predecessor in terms of narrative structure and tone the film fulfills the cliché of being a sequel that delivers and, in some ways, surpassing the original. Following the drama surrounding the Corleone family at the end of the first film, PART II takes two decidedly unexpected detours: One into history, the other into politics. We're proud to be presenting this amazing pair of films with multiple course inspired by the film: Caprese Panzanella, Lasagna, Intermezzo, and the Cannoli

                            Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.

                            President Obama’s brother, Mark Obama Ndesandjo will takes his national media tour to San Antonio on September 23, to discuss his much-awaited book: An Obama’s Journey: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery Across Three Cultures at Barnes and Noble. Mark’s revealing memoir recounts his complex relationship with his older half-brother, President Barack Obama, including their first meeting in Kenya over twenty years ago. The book also offers the author's inspiring personal story about identity and multiculturalism. Rare family photos add to the book's personal nature, as does the intense recounting of domestic violence in the home of Barack Obama Sr. and his third wife, Ruth Baker, Ndesandjo’s Jewish-American mother. The book also attempts to set the records straight on several points of the president’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father. In it's connection to President Obama, Mark's story takes on an even greater significance because it becomes all the more directly, a story of American identity and a window into the complex figure of the father they share, Barack Obama Sr., their roots in Kenya, their multicultural identities and their relationships with America. Mark will be donating a portion of this book’s profits to his Foundation to promote art education among disadvantaged children worldwide.

                            To say this movie is merely a “masterpiece” is doing it a disservice. To lump it in with all the other movies that are just great is unfair. SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN transcends its medium and tap dances straight into your heart. It's a film you can watch on a cold night and feel it flush your face with warmth. It’s a song you can sing when rain is pouring down on you and you couldn't care less because you're in love. This isn't one of those classic movies you have to see because it's “important” and your viewing experience will feel anything but scholastic.  You need to see this movie because YOU NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

The 3.25-mile route also includes an Eastside extension encompassing Dignowity and Lockwood Parks along with designated Reclovías to relax and refuel.
