As Memorial Day passed us by, the big summer blockbusters are coming out in rapid succession. The Avengers and Mad Max franchises kicked off what should be a big summer, but what summer movies are you looking forward to?

Marvel has more releases with "Ant Man" and "The Fantastic Four" reboot. A number of sequels are coming out like the nightmare-fuel Insidious 3. If not wanting all the pulse-pounding there are any number of quieter more cerebral films "The End Of The Tour" a bio-pic about the press tour for David Foster Wallace's book "Infinite Jest."

But more than the new films, film screening events are bringing back your favorites, or movies you need to see on the big screen across the city. Slab Cinema is out in the community showing fan favorites every summer. Tonight, Texas Public Radio brings back its popular "Cinema Tuesday" series, which celebrates its 15th year with "Giant."
