Enjoy a movie outside with San Antonio's Slab Cinema.

The duo of Angela and Rick Martinez, previously highlighted in our People Issue for their contributions to San Antonio's cinema scene, have released their schedule for Slab Cinema, the traveling outdoor movie screenings they host annually. With showings of Top Gun, Westside Story, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Painting, to name a few, this promises to be a memorable season and an excellent opportunity to get outside with a date, the kids or all by yourself and enjoy the post-sunset weather, San Antonio and some classic films. 

All screenings are free except for Pan's Labyrinth and will begin at sundown. Don't forget to pack a picnic, bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy. Dates without a film listed are currently undecided. For more info, visit
