Duke City Shootout

Seven filmmakers handpicked from around the country had seven days to shoot, edit and premiere 12-minute screenplays. Now the race is over, and the public's invited to see what the contestants came up with. On Saturday, Aug. 2, the Shootout will screen all seven movies at the Kiva Auditorium (in the Convention Center). The winner from the New Mexico 48 Hour Film Project will also screen at this event (see this week's feature for more details). Tickets cost $19 and include an awards ceremony after the screenings. After the premieres, head to the Hyatt Regency Grand Ballroom (330 Tijeras NW) for a post-premiere party where you can rub elbows with the filmmakers. For more info and to buy tickets, visit

Movies in the Park!

Some of the best things about summers in Albuquerque are warm, temperate nights and, as a direct consequence, movies in the park. The city is only hosting two more nights of outdoor films this summer, so don’t miss out.

On Friday, Aug. 1, Young Frankenstein will light Civic Plaza aglow. Then on Saturday, Aug. 2, The Waterhorse will float above the grass outside Los Vecinos Community Center (478 Hwy. 66 in Tijeras, 314-0240).

All movies start around 8 p.m. or as soon as the sun goes down. Bring your friends, family and blankets to these free events.

Gay Pride

For the Bible Tells Me So is an award-winning documentary that tackles the issue of homosexuality within the Christian church. Interviewing public figures such as former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, the film looks at how people in the church have handled “the realization of having gay children.” The 97-minute movie will screen at St. Paul Lutheran Church (1100 Indian School NE, just west of University) this Sunday, Aug. 3, at 11 a.m. An optional lunch and discussion will follow. According to one of the event's organizers, the documentary “offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.”
