USA Film Fest continues this weekend
If the end of the Dallas International Film Festival left you craving more movies, fear not — the USA Film Festival is back. The venerable celebration of American film continues through Sunday, but gay movie fans in particular will want to check out Bridegroom, a documentary from Designing Women creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, about the struggles of same-sex couples to achieve marriage equality. It screens Friday at the Angelika.
Women’s Chorus sings along to ‘Les Miserables’
The film version of Les Miserables became a huge, Oscar-winning hit, and with its iconic songs, it’s little wonder. If you’ve sung the score in the shower before, you’ll wanna come to the Royal Lane Studio Movie Grill for the Women’s Chorus of Dallas’ special sing-along screening on Sunday. And if you’re worried that you don’t sound good enough to sing in public, fear not: You can’t be worse than Russell Crowe.
Drag diva throws ‘Dixie’s Tupperware Party’
If you think Dixie Longate is kidding when she puts on a huge wig and throws a Tupperware party inside the McDavid Studio at Bass Hall, think again. This drag diva may be campy and comedic, but she’s damn serious about burpin’ in freshness — rest assured, you can actually buy Tupperware during the show! (Dixie’s one of the top salespeople for the product nationwide … for real.) But it’s still a hoot as she dishes between dishes in the return engagement of this one-person performance art piece. It’ll blow your lid.
Van Cliburn Recital Hall of McDavid Studio
330 E. 4th St., Fort Worth.
April 30–May 5.
