If you listen to Lyle Blackburn talk about bigfoot for even a few minutes, you'll start to buy in to the possibility that a breed of mysterious Sasquatch-type creatures may in fact be living in the woods all around us. If bigfoot isn't your thing, there are a few other good film-centric options: Whether your Tuesday tradition includes taking in the finest of cinema or the most laughably awful, The Magnolia and Texas Theatre have you covered.
Lyle Blackburn book signing at La Grange
Last week,, we spoke with Ghoultown frontman "Count Lyle" Blackburn about his first ever book, The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster. Tonight at La Grange, he'll be signing copies of that book prior to a screening of the documentary, Southern Fried Bigfoot.
Tuesday Night Trash: Hamburger: The Motion Picture at Texas Theatre
A movie about a hamburger college with a professor played by a former NFL athlete? Sounds like a winning Hollywood formula to us.
The music of ABBA at Meyerson Symphony Center
We've been known to belt out a pretty mean version of "Mamma Mia" whenever we get near a karaoke mic, so we were pretty stoked to find out that The Music of ABBA is a Swedish band of ABBA lookalikes. My my, how could we resist you?
The Big Movie: Ben-Hur at Magnolia Theatre
Last week's showing of Raging Bull marked the end of the "great directors" theme in the Big Movie series. Tonight's showing of the 212-minute epic Ben-Hur marks the start of April's "biblical spectaculars" theme. The nine-minute-long chariot race alone is worth the trip.
