This screening of the original “True Grit” featuring John Wayne isn’t any ordinary showing of the film.

Present for a bourbon tasting and cocktail presentation beforehand and a Q&A afterward is John Wayne’s son Ethan, as well as renowned bartender Francesco Lafranconi, to present a very special bottle of booze: the Duke Bourbon Whiskey, a blend of 5- to 10-year-old bourbons aged in charred barrels to recreate the whiskeys that John Wayne had left stashed away after his death.

Details: 6:45 p.m. $13. Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, 1120 S. Lamar Blvd. drafthouse.com.
