Celebrate 25 Years Of RoboCop At Texas Theatre.
Looks like Dallas has a nice little Saturday planned. Start off with some shopping at Dallas' best upscale flea market, but be sure to save a little cash for some vinyl over at Good Records, where they'll have copies of many of the rare Record Store Day edition vinyl. Also, the Dallas International Film Festival starts winding down today with the film we've been waiting for all along: The originall 35mm print of RoboCop will be showing over at Texas Theatre, where Peter Weller and many of the film's original cast and crew will be present. Later, take an art walk through Deep Ellum.
The Dallas Flea at South Side on Lamar
The quarterly market will play host to loads of local designers and feature jewelry, candles, artworks, and other crafts, all at lower-than-usual prices. Oh, and unlike most flea markets, The Dallas Flea accepts credit cards.
RoboCop at Texas Theatre
We've been offering up suggestions of films to check out at the Dallas International Film Festival all week, but really this is the one we've been anticipating for months. As tonight's screening of the 1987 sci-fi classic is meant to commemorate the Dallas-shot film's 25th anniversary, much of the original cast and crew who helped transform '80s Dallas into futuristic Detroit will be in attendance.
Deep Ellum Art Walk and afterparty
As part of the Deep Ellum Art Walk, 15 galleries in Deep Ellum and Expo Park will open their doors tonight. Check here for a map of participating galleries. Following the art walk will be an official after party at Life in Deep Ellum featuring food, drink, live music, and silent auctions.
Harakiri at Centraltrak
The latest round of performances at UT Dallas' Exposition Park artist residency takes on a bold name. Harakiri refers to a Japanese form of ritual suicide, typically reserved for Samurai warriors who have either become disgraced or who are about to be captured in battle. Tonight's opening reception includes works by visual artists Jill Foltz and Tabitha Pease, as well as George Quartz and the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group.
Record Store Day party at Good Records
Today, the popular Dallas music retailer celebrates its birthday, fittingly enough, on national Record Store Day. Show up to the store early to try and get your hands on some of the limited edition Record Store Day releases — like that Mastodon/Feist collaboration, the big Flaming Lips double LP or Preteen Zenith's debut. Stay for the party that includes live performances from Stardeath & White Dwarfs, Quaker City Night Hawks, Sealion, Zhora and the Ting Tings, among others.
