For those fans of Al Gore's 2006 documentary on climate change, "An Inconvenient Truth," the Waco Friends of Peace/Climate Change will screen the 2017 follow-up "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power" for free at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, at the Waco Hippodrome.
(And for fans of Kris Kristofferson, who'll perform in Waco next Thursday, the Hippodrome will be showing "A Star Is Born" starring him and Barbra Streisand at 7 p.m. tonight, Oct. 12).
October means horror films for many movie buffs (and horror buffs, too), so here's a heads-up of some of what's in store.
The Hippodrome has a month-long Horrorfest of scary and some comically scary movies in store: "Friday the 13th," Friday, Oct. 13 (of course); "Beetlejuice," Sunday, Oct. 15; "Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween," Oct. 20-22; and a shadowcast of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," Oct. 27 and 28.
The Horrorfest finale deserves a separate note: It's the 2008 locally-filmed zombie movie "Risen," shot in part in Bellmead and featuring scores of local extras (most used in the zombie attack on the Bellmead Civic Center).
The shadowcast of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" isn't the only one happening this month as the Waco RHPS shadowcast company Waco Warp will be presenting the film and its show Oct. 20-21 at Brazos Theatre.
October also brings McLennan Community College's Dark Mirror Film Festival, which looks at connections and themes found in horror and terror movies. This year's offerings are "Gremlins," "Evil Dead II" and "Shaun of the Dead," which will be shown from 3 to 9 p.m. Oct. 27 at Room 111 of MCC's Michaelis Academic Center.
