Time Out says

Academy Award winner Richard Linklater has plenty of projects to his name, but Austin Film Society is a particularly important one. Founded by Linklater in 1985, AFS is responsible for highlighting Texas filmmakers and screening hundreds of movies at AFS Cinema, formerly the Marchesa. In May 2017, the cinema completed a massive overhaul: The former single-screen theater added a second screen, a brand-new lobby and bar, an upgraded sound system and a massive event space. Linklater decorated the cinema with vintage posters and movie-soundtrack album covers from his personal collection. But the real show is on the screen—now, both of them.
