World Cinema brings back Luis Buñuel’s 1972 Oscar-winning The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie—a movie that proves that surrealism and art-house movies can also be fun. It has very little plot, apart from the fact that a group of bourgeois folks keep trying to sit down for a meal that never comes off. It’s also extremely strange and funny.

Classic Cinema From Around the World will present The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, at Courtyard Gallery, 109 Roberts St., in the Phil Mechanic Studios building, River Arts District. Info: 273-3332.
