The Revival of the Revival House: Texas Theatre to Start Showing Movies Again Next Week
|Courtesy Oak Cliff Foundation|
The full schedule's here, but the first movie unspools one week from tomorrow, and it's John Carpenter's The Thing redo, which I recall not handling terribly well upon its release in '82. (I ditched out early and caught Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ... for, like, the 29th time. Not proud.) Also on the schedule: The Coen Brothers' Blood Simple, Gimme Shelter (greatest rock doc of all time), Amores Perros and a double bill that'll include Hell's Angels from 1930, which was directed by Howard Hughes -- who, matter of fact, opened the theater on Jefferson Boulevard on April 21, 1931.
