Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Sometimes your brain, just like your body, needs to be flushed of all the toxins you've been dumping into it, especially if you've been streaming a lot of Netflix. No remedy for that at Whole Foods, but the Dallas Film Society, along with Morning News critic Chris Vognar and the Angelika, is taking a crack with its latest film series: Make 'Em Laugh: A Look at Modern American Comedies.

And they've plucked some good ones:

Aug 9: DUCK SOUP (1933)
Sept 13: SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS (1941)
Oct. 11: SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959)
Nov. (date tbd): DR STRANGELOVE (1964)
Dec 13: ANNIE HALL (1977)
Jan. 10: RAISING ARIZONA (1987)

Screenings are free, but you'll have to RSVP within 10 days of each screening, so make a Google event or something.

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.
