Stagecoach’s art is folksy, with oversized rocking chairs and cowboy boots spread throughout the grounds. The popular tractor exhibit is back again, too. Coachella’s towering art changes from year to year and tends to be more colorful. However, one installation from Coachella, the towering “Crown Ether” treehouse, is still in the middle of the grounds. And at both festivals, the art provides perfect backdrops for social media profile photos. 5. The food. Do you like meat? What about more meat? Stagecoach is for the carnivore inside its fans, with the aroma of smoked meats wafting through the air. The annual barbecue competitions have become part of the festival’s culture. (Not to worry, there are still vegetarian and vegan options, too.).

Veering away from standard genre archetypes, Lyne divides his film into intriguing chapters as he deconstructs and analyzes movies ranging from “Bubble Boy” to “Final Destination.” Narrator Fairuza Balk sets the perfect tone for this sociological plunge. Utterly fascinating. Screenings: 5 p.m. Feb. 7 at Humanist Hall; 7:15 p.m. Feb. 14 and 7:15 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Roxie.
