Vanishing Point is the greasers Easy Rider. Besides people, the 1971 film stars a 1970 Dodge Challenger which makes it a must-see for all gear heads. In keeping with its on-the-road/up-to-no-good theme, the movie follows the adrenaline-hungry Jimmy Kowalski, a car delivery man who must get the muscle car from Denver to San Francisco in one day. He employs the help of speed, in both pill and pedal-to-the-metal form, which makes for plenty of stunt-fueled, arrest-evading car chases, all set to some kick-ass rock and roll, including songs by Big Mama Thornton, Jerry Reed and The J. B. Pickers. 8:30 p.m. Domy, 1709 Westheimer. For information, call 713-523-3669 or visit www.domystore.com. Free.
