"Beauty and the Beast" Take that, Disney!

It’s not going to rain this weekend (we think) but it’s going to be in the high 90s. Movies have air conditioning.

“Finding Dory:” I am not made of stone, people.

“Beauty and the Beast.” Cocteau’s still-stunning, dreamy fairytale masterpiece remains a cinematic feast for the soul in all its black and white glory. (Please note: this is not the Disney version.) 8 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. $7-$10. AFS Cinema, 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. austinfilm.org.

“A Brighter Summer Day.” Co-presented with the Austin Asian American Film Festival, this newly restored epic of the New Taiwan Cinema movement is based on a true story from the late director Edward Yang, who grew up in the first generation in Taiwan born to Chinese refugee parents. 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday. $7-$10. AFS Cinema, 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. austinfilm.org.

“Raiders!” Yes, it really is that good.
