The extreme sport parkour is the star of the movie District B-13. Athletes who practice parkour achieve magnificent feats by treating city architecture as their own personal playground leaping and bounding from rooftops and walls at frightening heights. David Belle, the inventor of parkour (yes, its actually real), is even in the 2004 French action flick, in which good guys take on gangsters in the futuristic, rundown world of 2010. The films no-strings-attached stunts are a nice break from todays CGI-obsessed Hollywood. Jump into it at 8:30 p.m. Domy, 1709 Westheimer.
