At Real Art Ways tonight, “Beauty is Embarrassing” continues, followed by “Liberal Arts,” in which a newly single 35-year-old makes his way back to his college where he reunites with fond memories and old relationships.
Tomorrow brings “Science on Screen: 28 Days Later,” with an intro by science writer and blogger Carl Zimmer, who  has an interest in evolution and parasites.

The debates will lead up to a special election night event featuring a live, in-house broadcast by WNPR’s Colin McEnroe and John Dankosky.
Friday begins seven days of the documentary film “Bill W.,” the story of the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Saturday’s screening of “Bill W.” is followed by a one-time showing of “Breaking the Maya Code.” The complex and beautiful Maya hieroglyphic script was until recently the world’s last major undeciphered writing system. Its decoding has unlocked the secrets of one of mankind’s greatest civilizations.
That’s followed by “The Room.” Called “the best terrible movie ever,” it’s booked for monthly late shows at Real Art Ways.
Then Sunday begins the series, “The Story of Film: An Odyssey.”
Prodigious, poetic, and unlike any other “history” of cinema, Mark Cousins’s The Story of Film: An Odyssey is, as the title promises, a thrilling journey. Cousins’s personal voyage—complete with side-trips and retraced steps—is an illuminating, idiosyncratic tour of the emotional and intellectual pleasures of cinema.
Offered in 15 weekly chapters, with a combined running time of 15 hours, the film is a treasure trove of clips from films both famous and underappreciated, interviews from a global who’s-who of filmmakers, and passionate, provocative commentary.
Sunday’s chapter covers the “Birth of the Cinema” (1900–1920); and “The Hollywood Dream” (the 1920s.)
Over at Cinestudio, Trinity College’s theater, “Ruby Sparks” continues through Wednesday.
Then Thursday brings a free, one-time showing of “The Cup,”  a fascinating and amusing look at the Western influences reaching into a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. High in the Himalayas, the young monks (who play themselves in the film) have devoted their lives to an ancient religious tradition and rigorous spiritual discipline. They are also high-spirited teenagers obsessed with soccer.
Friday begins screenings of “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Armed with a 16mm camera and a limited budget, a New Orleans collective of filmmakers took off for a Louisiana bayou to make a movie (with non-professional actors) about a 6-year-old girl named Hushpuppy and her father Wink, living on the economic edge. What they came back with is homegrown magic realism and two astonishing performances – along with the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and the Cannes Film Festival prize for Best First Film.
Sunday, there’s also a matinee feature, National Theatre Live presents THE LAST OF THE HAUSSMANS, a three-generational drama set in a crumbling Art Deco cottage on England’s Devon coast. The matriarch, in a show-stopping turn by Julie Walters, has summoned her children and grandchildren as she recovers from cancer. No tea and scone-serving Granny, she is an alternately hilarious and selfish survivor of the 1960s, whose radical journey has brought an angry next generation home to roost.
