The Alamo Drafthouse has declared this week Wes Anderson Week, so it must be so.
Tonight the movie theater will screen The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, which is wonderful in part because Bill Murray basically knotted a string around my heart last night with his impromptu tribute to Harold Ramis. Team Zissou. The Drafthouse will screen a selection of Anderson’s films in front of the release of the filmmaker’s must-anticipated latest, The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders. (A girl can dream, okay?)
Meanwhile, Daniil Trifonov, an internationally acclaimed concert pianist who is several years younger than me, will play at Dallas City Performance Hall with his mentor, Sergei Babayan. The evening is a fundraiser for the Dallas Chamber Music Society, so tickets will be on the pricier side. The duo will play Mozart’s Sonata in D Major, Schubert’s Fantasie in F Minor, a new arrangement of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite, Op. 64, and Rachmaninoff’s Suite No. 2.
Photography buffs who are feeling lucky can sign up for the waitlist for tonight’s free event at the Perot Museum, where the photographer Sam Abell is giving a talk about his work and 40-year career taking pictures for National Geographic.
For more to do tonight, go here. Be careful out there.
