Just confirmed: Monkeys Will Begin Their Revolution At Mason Park

Will Ferrell's funniest movie about NASCAR will screen twice in August at Houston-area Alamo Drafthouses. Both screenings are part of our Quote-Along series so that means plenty of funny one-liners, props and games. Audiences are also encouraged to come dressed in their best NASCAR costume.
