This is the way to see a movie, kids. You bring your blankets, head out to the lawn at The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Dr., and get treated to some awesome live music before the screening starts.
That’s the kind of chill vibe that the Long Center, Do512 and Alamo Drafthouse have in mind when they present Sound and Cinema, the summertime film series that also features a live performance by Austin’s up-and-coming music artists. Doors open today at 6 p.m., and starting at 7:30 p.m., longtime Austin Music Minute fave Walker Lukens takes the stage with his band. Then, around 8:45 p.m., it’s a screening of the 1999 rom-com flick Ten Things I Hate About You.
Admission is free. And nothing beats an excellent set of grooves before the movie. So recommended.
