Kicks With the Family

It’s an old truism: The family that ruptures bad guys' spleens together, stays together. Sadly, in this modern, cuckoo world, we just forget how important hanging with the sibs and delivering roundhouse kicks to vital organs really are. Take a few minutes Monday night to reflect on the importance of family as Alamo Drafthouse Cinema presents Brothers Five, the 1970 Shaw Brothers Studios film about a swordswoman who brings together five brothers to avenge their father’s murder. Along the way, they learn about a little something called teamwork. Yeah. Think about that. You can at 7 p.m. at 100 S. Central Expressway in Richardson. Tickets are $5. Visit
