If you mention this column to me in person, I entitle you, the reader, to punch me as hard as you can, anytime between now and when you finish reading this sentence. It’s the least I can do, considering I neglected to tell you last week about Troma Tuesdays at Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes (1255 SW Loop 410, drafthouse.com/westlakes). Every Tuesday in October, the Drafthouse is screening, for free, a film produced by the infamous exploitation studio. Unfortunately, you’re reading this too late to catch Cannibal: The Musical, but you can still see Terror Firmer on October 14, and Unspeakable on October 21. Both films screen at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.

In other Drafthouse news, the original theater in Austin (320 E. Sixth St, originalalamo.com) will screen the long-awaited, low-budget sci-fi film by the Flaming Lips, Christmas on Mars, with a live appearance by head Lip Wayne Coyne, the film’s writer and director, at 7 p.m., 9:40 p.m., and 11:59 p.m., Saturday, October 11. Tickets are $12, and should be purchased immediately.

And if you can afford the gas (not to mention the tickets, ranging from $9 for a single film to $95 for an all-inclusive badge) don’t forget the Austin Film Festival (austinfilmfestival.com) taking place from October 16 to October 23.
