Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating the “Summer of 1983,” a sequel to last year’s extremely popular film series marking the 30th anniversary of the greatest Hollywood blockbusters of the 1980s. Last year the Alamo honored 1982. And while that was indeed the greatest summer of … Continue reading
As residents of South Texas, the majority of us cringe at the thought of cold weather because it is several degrees out of our comfort zone. There are always those few who are so relieved that it has cooled off, … Continue reading
Temporarily closing, that is. Alamo Drafthouse will celebrate a renovation closure with activities that appeal to film buffs of all genres and transcend age groups. All six screens will load up on interactive and participatory events that will send the South … Continue reading
Tis the season to be extraordinarily busy. Although it may not feel like winter, the hustle and bustle around town suggests otherwise. Twinkling lights illuminate dark sidewalks and red and green paint the town with Holiday spirit. There are endless … Continue reading
Willy Wonka is a movie for all – the kids love it for the playful songs, candy aplenty and the mere concept of a chocolate factory that makes something as magical as an Everlasting Gobstopper or a chocolate river. Adults love it for the nostalgia for innocence and childhood it evokes, as well as Gene Wilder’s unforgettable and rivetingly odd performance as Willy Wonka. The 1971 original is clearly the best version, and Tim Burton can never change that. Never! Continue reading
Following a wildly successful kickoff of last year’s Off-Centered Fest, complete with a packed downtown party with the best TX breweries in attendance, Alamo Drafthouse has decided to give it another go, this time with a Western twist. This year, the film of choice is Blazing Saddles, and I’m sure you have an inkling of what to expect – Western themed activities, beer fit for even the most rugged cowboy and all the accessorizing appropriate for the occasion.

The FP (Written and Directed by Brandon and Jason Trost) stands for Fraiser Park, a town in California in the not so distant future. In this town, there are two street gangs who vie for dominance through the art of the “Beat Beat Revelation” Video Game (a reference to Dance Dance Revolution, if you missed out on the late 90’s). But, this plot is merely a minor part of the sheer joy this movie has to bring. Continue reading
Bullhead, the directorial debut of Michael Roskam, has received international acclaim and won a plethora of awards to boot. Starring Matthias Schoenaerts in his promising breakout performance, Palm Springs IFF 2012 and the 2011 AFI festival has awarded him with “Best Actor” and “New Auteurs Critic’s Prize For Best Actor.” Continue reading
Enter in the gigantic facade we rolled up to on Slaughter, the first location to have the NEW Alamo logo on the outside of it. We put our hard hats on like good little tour hooligans and away we went. Tim League himself began the tour with a brief run down of how excited they were to finally get to break ground on the newest of the Alamos. Continue reading
Enter in, the Bottle of Wits. After a few phone calls to the Princess Bride rights holders, the design maestros at Helms Workshop for a collectible bottle idea and of course, their in-house drink master, the Drafthouse was looking at two wines they call Inconceivable Cab and As You Wish White.
