Here’s How You Can Join Austin.com for Movie Watch Parties All This Week


Take a movie break every afternoon with us and watch a classic film with ties to Austin over on Facebook. Movie watch parties start at 2 p.m.

We kicked things off on Monday with the Mike Judge classic Idiocracy. If you missed it, you can watch the replay here.

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the week:

Tuesday: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
Starring Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio, this flick was shot in Manor and the surrounding area.

Wednesday: Shazam
The smash hit Shazam stars Austin area resident Zachary Levi. Here’s what he told us about moving to Central Texas in 2019.

Thursday: Machete Kills
He may be from Los Angeles, but Danny Trejo is one of our favorite honorary Austinites. Bonus: Scenes in this film were shot here. Pay close attention and you’ll see some familiar sights.

Friday: True Grit
It’s a Friday flashback with the original version of True Grit, though it’s the remake that was shot right here in Austin.
