On Aug. 8, every state in the union is hosting a free screening, somewhere, of Bo Burnham’s outstanding “Eighth Grade,” and the film’s R rating will not be enforced.
As the news release noted, “If you’ve been through 8th Grade, ‘Eighth Grade’ is for you.”
The Texas screening takes place 7:45 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.

However, according to the Drafthouse website, you can reserve your seat in advance by purchasing a $5 voucher good towards food or beverages at the screening.
Seriously, it’s a terrific movie that could prompt important conversations with your middle- or high school-aged child.
Or, like mine, she will absolutely refuse to discuss anything in the film, like, “LALALALAL I CAN’T HEAR YOU” refuse.
See it with your kid anyway. It’s a powerful, important, often incredibly touching movie.RELATED: 8th graders can see ‘Eighth Grade’
