Westworld (The 1973 Original). Yeah, it turns out that TV show that you still need to check out is based off a semi-forgotten film from the '70s. Well, don't worry, Casa Video Film Bar is screening the classic so you can finally tell your friends that you've seen Westworld and they'll stop pestering you. 7 p.m. Friday, June 22. 2905 E. Speedway Blvd.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. For their "Classic Films at the Temple of Music and Art" series, the Arizona Theatre Company is screening this 1994 Oscar-winning cult hit. It tells the story of two drag queens traveling across the desert and doing what they do best. Plus, you get to see Hugo Weaving as a drag queen! The screening will be introduced and hosted by Tucson's own drag diva, Tempest DuJour. 7 p.m. Saturday, June 23. 330 S. Scott Ave. $10.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High. So now that summer is underway, the Fox Theatre is treating you to one of the most Californian films ever. What says summer more than sex, drugs, rock n' roll and Sean Penn's sunburnt face? 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 23. 17 W. Congress St. $7.

Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D. Back in the '50s, a 3D movie didn't mean having your world flipped upside down as you zoomed through lasers and explosions. It meant putting on some red and blue glasses and flinching when an actor pointed toward the camera. Relive those glory days at The Loft Cinema as they screen this monster classic, the way it was originally shown. It's spooky, it's silly, it's a fishin' good time. 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23; and 11 a.m., Sunday, June 24. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $7.

2001: A Space Odyssey. You know what's a great movie? This one. You should see it. If you know what it's about, that's all the reason you need to go see it. And if you don't know what it's about, you still certainly recognize the name, and that's proof enough of its importance. Either way, I'll see you at The Loft for their new 70mm screening.

12:30 p.m./4 p.m./ 7:30 p.m., Friday, June 22 through Thursday, June 28. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $10.

The Misandrists. Picture this: A man on the run in the wilderness discovers a secret stronghold for the "Female Liberation Army"—a radical feminist terrorist group that plans to have women take over the world. What happens next? This showing at The Screening Room is based on the wild counterculture and exploitation films from minds like John Waters. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 28, and 9 p.m. Friday, June 29. 127 E Congress St.
