Rally the troops for the Alamo Drafthouse!

Firstly, go and read this. Secondly spread the word. Thirdly, do whatever else moves you. There’s a reason Entertainment Weekly rated the Alamo Drafthouse as the best place in the country to see a movie. Instead of paying for the privilege of having to watch annoying advertisements, or even worse, “The 20” before a film, you get highly entertaining clips which are in someway relevant to the film you are seeing albeit sometimes in very roundabout, esoteric ways. It can be a game in itself too try and figure out how exactly these bizarre collections of clips are connected to the film you are about to see. I always wonder how the hell they manage to find those things and put them together.

Great food and drink with your movie. So much legroom that even my giant of a cousin has no problem stretching out, and he gets cramped just about anywhere. Rolling roadshows, Harold Lloyd films with a live soundtrack, Videoke, and a million other things that make the Alamo a part of why I love Austin, and usually the only theater where I will go see a film. Since the first time my cousin took me there, long before I lived in Austin, I was blown away. Spread the Alamo love.
