S'Nuff film

Where do we start? There are movie screenings all over town this week of the cost-shit and free persuasion (and not as in “download an unfinished bootleg copy of that Wolverinemovie and wait for the Fox black-ops agents to swarm your computer desk” free, either).

In the first category, director Juan Carlos Hernández’s San Antonio-shot kidnap flick Secuestrada screens at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, through Friday, April 17, at Santikos Palladium (17703 W. I-10). Tickets are $9.50; go to santikos.com for more information.

For the broke, Madhatter’s Tea House and Café (106 Auditorium Circle) hosts the “In the Can” Film Slam — featuring a baker’s dozen short movies by local and regional directors, including Ya’Ke Smith’s “The Second Coming,” and a Girl in a Coma music video directed by Jim Mendiola— 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 10. If you’d like to see a full-length film for free and don’t wish to wake up chained to the floor in a studio-run torture facility, try lurking outside La Tuna (100 Probandt) around 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, when Slab Cinema (slabcinema.com) plans to screen Cary Grant’s 1937 screwball classic Topper.
