The movie about the 1988 Carter High School football team, which was stripped of its national title, opens Thursday, Oct. 29. “Carter High” was written and directed by Arthur Muhammad, who played on the 1988 team. The film stars Charles S. Dutton as coach Freddie James and tells the full story that is a footnote to “Friday Night Lights.”

Frank Reaugh, the Oak Cliff-based landscape painter, was the first important artist to come out of Texas. But of course, Dallas didn’t appreciate him. So the vast majority of his work is in the Texas Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum near Amarillo and the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. The latter is showing “Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West” through Nov. 29.

Teatro Dallas is producing a play, “The Wake of Fulgencio Sánchez,” at the Cedar Crest Mansion, 2223 W. Jefferson, through Sunday, Nov. 1.
