Two very different classics are screening in Oak Cliff this week.

“Rope” plays at the Texas Theatre Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. It technically is free, but a $5 donation is suggested. The Texas also is screening “Return to Giant” Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

And “Raising Arizona”, the endlessly quotable Joel Coen flick that makes kidnapping seem funny, screens at the Belmont Hotel pool at sundown Thursday. It’s the last installment of the hotel’s “dive-in” movie series this summer.
