If you're into movies with smart characters who secretly feel shunned by society and scenes with supremely low frame rates, you're in luck. The Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson is having a mini-film fest of director Wes Anderson's films all next week.

The Drafthouse's "Week of Wes" kicks off Saturday with a 4 p.m. screening of Moonrise Kingdom followed by a 2 p.m. screening Sunday of Anderson's adaptation of Rolad Dahl's classic children's book Fantastic Mr. Fox. It continues from Monday through Thursday with 7:40 p.m. screenings of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore and Bottle Rocket (sorry fans of The Darjeeling Limited).

It's all leading up to Friday's premiere of Anderson's newest movie The Grand Budapest Hotel, which as of right now you'll have to see at another theater (sorry future fans of The Grand Budapest Hotel).

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
