Debra Winger and dinosaurs: Four special screenings to see this weekend

"Tangerine"

“Tangerine”

“An Officer and a Gentleman.” Master Pancake will take on this love story for the ages (well, the 1980s, anyway), about a naval trainee (Richard Gere, well into his 30s playing a guy who’s supposed to be, at most, about 24) who meets a local girl (Debra Winger) whom he sweeps off her feet. LITERALLY. It’s the 35th anniversary of this romantic classic. 7 and 10 p.m. Friday. $14.50-$49. Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St. drafthouse.com.

“Tangerine.” I still think about the early-90s-indie energy director Sean Baker and co-writer Chris Bergoch infused into this shot-on-an-iPhone (with a prototype adapter lens) flick from 2015. Two transgender gals named Sin-Dee and Alexandra (played by two transgender gals named Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor) wander around L.A., talk smack and hang out. 1 p.m. Saturday.  $9.50. Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St. drafthouse.com.

 “Programming Hope.” This inspirational documentary is the story of a race car-driving software developer whose career switches gears when his autistic son inspires him to found a video game company that will employ autistic adults. 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. Free. Georgetown Palace Theatre, 810 S. Austin Ave. facebook.com/ProgrammingHope.

“Dinosaur 13.” The discovery of “Sue,” the largest complete T-Rex skeleton uncovered to date, sparked a 10-year battle between museums, government agencies, Native American tribes and the scientific community. This “Science On Screen” presentation will be followed by a discussion with dinosaur researcher Julia Clarke. 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday. $7-$10. Bullock Museum, 1800 Congress Ave. austinfilm.org.
