I recently moved to the area, and one of the things I love is watching old classics and foreign films. Are there any theaters around here that do that sort of thing either regularly or at least for summer film festivals?

You must have moved here from a larger city? Corpus Christi theaters don't really show and they never have. There are only 3 multi-screen movie theaters here owned by two different companies, and they gear their marketing to teens for the most part, nothing too deep. Every once in a while, they will show a quality picture, but it won't stay long. Many years ago, CCSU (now A & M- Corpus Christi) would show classic movies like "Casablanca" on the big screen on friday nights. I would try that.

thanks, I'll look into it.

I moved from Las Cruces, NM which is not too big, but has The Fountain Theater ... a beautiful old theatre which now shows foreign films.
I don't miss a lot, but I do miss that.

Every now and then Century 16 will have like a two day event where they show something a little different. Sometimes it's things like operas, at least once there was a Japanese film. I don't think there's any place that shows classic or foreign films on a regular basis around here though!
