That Metal's Gotta Be Hot

There’s something about Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark that makes comic geeks cry tears of joy when he appears on screen. Few would argue that Downey wasn’t made for the role. Even the substance problems that both actor and comic hero share seem a perfect match. It’s the snarky charm combined with Stark’s jerk personality that make it all work, so we revisit the film whenever possible. For those looking for a taste of nostalgia, the Texas Theatre screens Iron Man’s solo career — you know, before he became a team player in the Avengers, Saturday. The free showing of Iron Man, presented by Texas Theater and Mega 107.5 FM, is at Crawford Memorial Park. The movie begins at dusk, but show up early to get a prime space for your blanket and picnic basket. Crawford Memorial Park is located at 8740 Elam Road. Visit
