The Quentin Tarantino Film Festival

For the sixth year, Quentin Tarantino is coming to Austin for a nine-night festival of his favorite B-movies. The event has always been a crowd-pleaser, but daytrippers risk disappointment: Badges guaranteeing admission are sold out, and single-night passes will be available only for those willing to wait until 15 minutes before showtime to see how many seats are left. The Tarantino Fest takes place September 9-17 at the downtown Austin Alamo Drafthouse, 409 Colorado. Tickets are $10-30. For more info, visit
