KLRU-Q’s Saturday Night at the Movies presents a full-length feature film every Saturday night, plus extra content that gives the evening an exciting spin. Each film explores the work of legendary actors and actresses through many important films from their careers. Here is a peek of what this Saturday has in store:
7 pm Just Seen It – We review the new Sci-Fi thriller, AFTER EARTH, starring Will and Jaden Smith. We check in with The Bluths and their re-boot of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. With all the Sci-Fi movies coming out this summer, we offer you our Sci-Fi Favorites, and welcome back Clark Kent in MAN OF STEEL – plus give you our DVD pick of the week!
7:30 pm On Story: Presented by the Austin Film Festival – The voices behind THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, BRIDESMAIDS, and RACHEL GETTING MARRIED deliberate how the most impressionable characters – both good and evil – are compelling because of their flaws, complexities, and personal truths. Accompanied by the short film, MENTIROSO by writer/director Will Shipley about trailing a young boy whose incessant lies are almost as far-fetched as an astonishing encounter with the most beautiful girl in town.
8 pm Dead Ringer – Edith (Bette Davis) kills Margaret, her twin, and takes her identity, fooling Edith’s boyfriend (Karl Malden) but not Margaret’s lover. Cast: Bette Davis, Karl Malden, Peter Lawford.
10 pm Drive-in Movie Memories – A film celebration of drive in movie theaters, one of America’s greatest symbols of youth, freedom and the automobile. What started as the business venture an auto parts dealer to make some easy money accidentally became a magical place where romance, fun and a sense of community flourished.
