The Nasher released its Summer/Fall schedule of 'til Midnight events today, and there's some real gems in there. The late night series is a Dallas staple that pairs live bands, great movies and free admission on the third Friday evening of each month. The next six are a strong collection, from Bringing Up Baby to Moonrise Kingdom and Life of Pi, you have a lovely blend of new an old. But on August 16th, things get extra frisky.
That's when the Nasher screens The Three Amigos -- which everyone knows is the greatest film about three silent film actors who mistakenly travel to Mexico to accidentally battle a brutal villain due to an underfunded telegraph message through song and dance that's ever been made.
Mark 9 p.m., August 16th on your calendar and spend an evening under the stars with Lucky Day, Dusty Bottoms and Ned Nederlander as they croon in the desert and sew like the wind. (Go early and hear live music by Calhoun). Maybe, just maybe, someone will let you kiss them on the veranda, even though the lips would be fine.
