Another sign that Austin's summer will look a little more normal than last year: The Paramount Theatre's Summer Classic Film Series returns next week for its 46th edition.

Starting May 27, the historic theater in downtown Austin will present cinematic favorites all summer long. The full lineup is not out yet, but films for May and June have been announced. Look for the July schedule on June 22, and the August films will be revealed on July 20.

Per tradition, the film fun kicks off with "Casablanca," and also as expected, the theater has programmed timely themes and pairings throughout.
