What to Do in Dallas Today: June 15, 2010

caricatureHave you visited the Texas Theatre lately? I recommend heading there tonight. For one thing, they’ve got an awesome sign. For another, they are doing a Classic Movie Series every Tuesday night, and tonight they are showing one of the best movies ever made, Easy Rider. Organizers say the movie is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. They also recommend arriving about 30 minutes early to get a good look at the building’s interior. You might remember that after Lee Harvey Oswald was captured there, and after being thrust into the national spotlight, the theater’s lovely wood railings, false bridges, and intricate designs were covered over with spray-applied plaster. It is much more historically significant than your local movie megaplex, to say the least. And cheaper.

Hungry? Like meatloaf? Head to Norma’s Cafe today for a deal. The restaurant is offering meatloaf and chicken fried steak dinners for $1.79 in honor of its 54th anniversary, but only while supplies last.

Here are some more events happening today.
