The Portuguese film Al Berto opens the 20th Q Cinema festival.

Wednesday 03 – The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum has relocated from the east side of town to a logical place: the Stockyards.

Admission is $10. Call 817-534-8801.

Thursday 04 – It’s now been 20 years that Q Cinema has been running in one place or another in Fort Worth, and this weekend the LGBT film festival will be cooling its heels in the posh setting of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, with Drew Bolton’s slasher flick Killer Unicorn, Sonia Sebastián’s comedy Freelancers Anonymous, and the Portuguese romance Al Berto by the awesomely named Vicente Alves do Ó. The festival runs today thru Sun at 3200 Darnell St, FW. Single tickets are $10-15. Passes are $100. Call 817-723-4358.

Friday 05 – Maybe you know about Kwanzaa and Juneteenth, but do you know about Harambee?

With food, music, a parade, demonstrations, and entertainment, the festival runs today thru Sat at Evans Avenue Plaza, 1050 Evans Av, FW. Admission is free. Call 817-229-7778.

Saturday 06 – One of Tom Stoppard’s lighter entertainments, Artist Descending a Staircase started as a radio play and was adapted into a stage play that’s part murder mystery, British farce, and meditation on the role of art as two elderly artists try to solve the death of a decades-old friend after a fall down the stairs. Amphibian Stage Productions’ version of the show runs Fri thru Oct 28 at 120 S Main St, FW. Tickets are $33-100. Call 817-923-3012.

Sunday 07 – Local film critic Chase Whale (yes, that’s his real name) has teamed up with the Lone Star Film Society and other festivals to screen a series of cult films.

The movie screens at 7pm at 1002 S Main St, FW. Admission is $3. 

Monday 08 – The IMAX theater at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is still running Dinosaurs Alive!, a 40-minute film narrated by Michael Douglas that takes us back to the era when the giant reptiles roamed the Earth.

Call 817-255-9300.
