Tickets for Texas

The Plaza Classic Film Festival in El Paso, Texas, comes to an end this weekend. If you haven’t bitten the bullet and bought the gas to get down there yet, you might want to consider it this weekend. On Saturday, Aug. 14, legendary director Peter Bogdanovich will be there to introduce his 1971 film The Last Picture Show (based on the book by Larry McMurtry). Bogdanovich will give a free filmmaker’s talk beginning at 6 p.m. at the Oasis Lounge (located inside downtown El Paso’s historic Plaza Theatre). The screening itself will start at 7 p.m. at the Plaza’s Kendle Kidd Performance Hall. Tickets for the screening are $8 and may be purchased through Log on to for a complete list of films and events happening through Sunday.

North to Alaska

The historic El Rey Theater is teaming up with the Holocaust and Intolerance Museum of New Mexico and the Santa Fe Opera to present an amazing night of Native film and entertainment. On Wednesday, Aug. 18, El Rey will turn movie theater again for a screening of the hallmark 1922 silent documentary Nanook of the North. Considered the first true documentary feature, Nanook captures the struggles of an indigenous Alaskan man and his family to survive in the rugged Canadian arctic. In addition to the film, there will be a live performance by Inuit throat singer Lois Suluk-Locke and composer Brent Michael Davids. A panel discussion about the movie will follow. After the event, there will be a reception at the Holocaust and Intolerance Museum, located just east of El Rey in Downtown Albuquerque. A suggested $10 donation gets you in the door for all the evening’s festivities.
