Listen up all you dopers and petty criminals, Scared Straight is a movie made just for you. Filmed way back in 1978, before Robert Downey Jr. took all the sting out of being called a jailbird, Scared Straight was meant as a cautionary tale - a sort of "these are all the terrible things that are going to happen to you if you go to prison" story. Mostly there's just a lot of big, hairy guys standing around yelling, cussing and trying to steal your shoes (which sounds suspiciously like our last trip to the convenience store). There's a high - and completely unintentional - giggle factor, which makes Scared Straight a favorite among the "I am high as hell" club. 8:30 p.m. Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer.
