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
Hailing from Utah, YouTube stars, THE PIANO GUYS became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. (Co-presented with AEG Live).
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.

GREASE sing-a-long is coming to Alamo Draft House. This film adaptation of the 1971 musical is a pure dose of happy, a celebration of youth the way we prefer to remember it. It's got the school dance to end all school dances, the school carnival to end all school carnivals, the teen romance to end all teen romances. And then there's the incredibly catchy soundtrack, jubilantly executed by Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta and the stellar cast. It's impossible not to sing along with this movie, which is why we're screening the film with all of the lyrics subtitled. (Like anyone doesn't know them word for word, but still.) As you sing about the risks of being a beauty school dropout or, oh, those summer nights, you'll also have props themed to the show so you get the full interactive experience.
Call up your Pink Ladies and T-Birds and join us at Rydell High, where we'll cheer on Greased Lightening, swoon over Sandy and Danny and sing ourselves silly. Because when it comes to fun, we're racing for pinks. (Sarah Pitre)

Paul Verhoeven is an absolute genius and Peter Weller will annihilate you with his anguished robot cop constructed from leftover pain and rage.
Come quietly or there will be... trouble. Get your prime directives in order, grab your tickets and prepare for a cinematic experience that will BLOW YOUR MIND! Now I'd buy that for a dollar. (Greg MacLennan)

An apt follow-up to 2013’s “The Photographic Art Of Thomas Dodd,” AnArte’s latest Fotoseptiembre offering unites Dodd with like-minded artists linked by visions of “an otherworldly universe.” Whereas Dodd’s prints combine classical aesthetics and digital practices, Eduardo Berdegué’s works add movement to portraits of market vendors in Bolivia. Immediately arresting, the altered landscapes of Aubra Franklin’s series Lavender Dreams spell out the exhibition’s title while Trish Simonite’s compositions spark dialogues via photographic mashups.
Curated by Deborah Keller-Rihn and Melanie Rush Davis, “Mixing It Up” is a one-stop crash-course in some of San Antonio’s most innovative artists, who experiment in this show with mixed media and photographic images. Given the crazy roster of artists involved, which includes Katie Pell, Juan Miguel Ramos, Kemp Davis, Trish Simonite, Ramin Samandari, Mario Garza, Wesley Harvey, Carra Garza and the curators themselves, this could be anything. Worst-case scenario: The viewer learns a little something about a whole lot of artists at once.
McNay director William J. Chiego highlights connections between paintings in the McNay’s permanent collection and those currently on view in the traveling exhibition “Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art.”
Daedelus is an anachronistic dude. With the name of a mythic Bronze Age Greek architect, the sideburns of a 19th-century president and the aesthetic sense of a retrospective futurist, the LA producer isn’t held down to a place in time like the rest of us. Take his recent soundtracking work for the excellent side-scroller Nidhogg, touching on the driving rhythms and ascending, 8-bit lines of classic SNES, while introducing Aphex Twin beats and occult synths to the mix. For Daedelus, trained at the University of Southern California in jazz double bass, this clattering of influence is all in a day’s work, blending ’90s house pop with PBR&B or tasteful EDM with outsider production. With Empireal Formula, Ernest Gonzales and Ohh Yeah.
