Thanks for the memories, Grossmann Fantastic Film & Wine Festival!

Lars Nilsen here. I just returned from Slovenia and a trip to the Grossmann Fantastic Film & Wine Festival. When I first received the invitation I think I sort of glossed over the wine part. I thought, “Oh, a film festival with wine. Fun.” But I hadn’t quite understood that it meant that as a jury member I’d also be judging the wines of the region, many of them. Very good ones. I did my level best to balance the demands of being a conscientious judge, representative of Fantastic Fest and wine swiller but it was a demanding detail so I apologize in advance if my memories are a little cloudy.

Just confirmed: Monkeys Will Begin Their Revolution At Mason Park

We've just confirmed that our fine furry friends from Gallery Furniture and Westside Tennis will be returning to the Alamo Drafthouse — Mason Park on Friday, August 5 to hang out with visitors — flaunting their superior dexterity skills. Who says RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES isn't a true story?

Praise Lord Baby Jesus, we’re showing Talladega Nights in August

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. So take a sharp left around the bend for quality fun from The Action Pack.
