So L7? 

So you don't like crazy music, and you don't like rockin' bands. You just wanna go to a movie show and sit there holding hands? You're so square. But, baby, this is Elvis Week, and Elvis Presley Enterprises and Malco theaters are going to show Presley-loving cinephiles that they really do care.

What could be cooler than enjoying a picnic on the lawn at Graceland while taking in a screening of Jailhouse Rock? Scorching, precedent-shifting choreography and a snappy Leiber and Stoller score make Jailhouse Rock the quintessential Elvis flick. And how can you not see the King sing "Treat Me Nice" on his own front lawn? The film screens on Monday, August 11th, following a 7 p.m. concert by early-rock aficionado Andy Childs. The concert documentary Elvis —That's the Way It Is screens on Tuesday, August 12th, after a concert by Terry Mike Jeffrey with members of the TCB Band and the Imperials. The events are $44 for a one-day ticket or $75 for a two-day pass.

Fans looking for a cheaper (and a more climate-controlled) peek at the celluloid Elvis may want to visit Malco's Studio on the Square on Tuesday, August 12th. Elvis' last pre-army film, King Creole, screens at 9:30 a.m., and a different Elvis film starts every 15 minutes until noon. Other films include G.I. Blues, Blue Hawaii, and Girls, Girls, Girls. Admission is $5 per film.

"Music and Movies at Graceland," Monday, August 11th, and Tuesday, August 12th, 7 p.m. (tickets: 332-3322). Malco's Elvis Film Fest 5, Tuesday, August 12th, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Studio on the Square
