You should totally see ‘Daughters of the Dust’ if you like Beyoncé. No, really.

“A Christmas Story Movie Party.” There was a time when this 1983 Bob Clark classic was considered a cult film. Not anymore, what with it being on TV non-stop of late. And it’s soul is still that of a cult movie (it may be the most secular hunk of Christmas-themed art since “White Christmas”). There will be props, there will be games. 4 p.m. Saturday. 7 p.m. Tuesday. Alamo Drafthouse Ritz 320 East Sixth St. drafthouse.com/austin/show/a-christmas-story-movie-party

“For All Mankind.” This special Science on Screen edition starts by screening Al Reinert’s seminal archival documentary about the first moon landing, followed by a discussion with Reinert and the retired NASA mission controllers who guided the Apollo shots. 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday. $7-$10. Bullock Museum, 1800 Congress Ave. austinfilm.org.
