AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

The city's largest and longest-running film festival will open again in August.

The San Antonio Museum of Art is showing a free movie on Friday night that has, in the years since its release,  gained cult status.  Given the exploding reputation of the Movie’s producers, its reputation has grown with time. 

"I think that now it's a classic. We can say it's a cult movie for sure."

SAMA's Emily Dujour is talking about a movie that helped give Jeff Bridges cult status: The Big Lebowski. It's apparent from the first scene that you're watching a Coen Brothers movie.

The Briscoe Western Art Museum's Summer Film Series continues, and every year the museum chooses a different theme. The Briscoe's Sharon Garcia explains this year's choice of Women of the West.

Tim League, the founder and owner of Alamo Drafthouse, has been quietly collecting film prints of obscure movies from the 1960s and '70s for the past two decades. This year, League will begin producing DVDs based on prints from the collection.
