Austin continues to be a magnificent city to see awesome old movies on a big screen.

3m8f8p3NXNPJeASQoituEBCzSStJacques Tati’s  Monsieur Hulot deals with modernity in “Mon Oncle”(1958), which picked up an Academy Award for best foreign-language film. It screens 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Alamo Ritz.

Check out Wim Wenders’s “Alice in the Cities’ (1974), the first film in his “Road Movie Trilogy,” screens 7 p.m. Sunday at the Austin Film Society at the Marchesa (6226 Middle Fiskville Rd.)

After that you can head over to the Alamo Ritz where they are screening Joaquín Luis Romero qCs315KOtjGnwbYMTViqgP4nCifMarchent’s totally bonkers-violent 1972 “Eurowestern” “Cut-Throats Nine,” a movie which Quentin Tarantino has probably seen a time or two, at 10 p.m. (Cutthroats 9 is also the name of a totally excellent noise rock outfit.)
