2007 Rolling Roadshow Tour Dates to be announced on Tuesday

UPDATE: We've had a bit of a delay in our announcment; expect word on the final lineup within the next few days!!

The final lineup of the 2007 Rolling Roadshow Tour will be announced at noon on Tuesday, April 24. This is the third outing for the tour, an offshoot of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema's outdoor screening system, the Rolling Roadshow, and if I do say so myself, it is going to be the best year yet.

Every summer, we take off from Austin, Texas for a whirlwind tour of the United States, screening famous movies in famous places. We've been to the Field of Dreams in Iowa with Kevin Costner live in person, Devil's Tower in Wyoming for a screening of Close Encounters and Lake Powell for a screening of Planet of the Apes.

The Rolling Roadshow is not simply a series of outdoor movie screenings though. The tour is the culmination of everything we have worked towards at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema: fantastic Cinema happenings, with complete movie immersion, celebrity guests, wacky tie-ins, contests, scavenger hunts, and the thrill of watching your favorite movies in the exact locations in which they were filmed.

Although we can't divulge the schedule until April 24, the 2007 line-up is going to be the best yet! The 2007 Rolling Roadshow Tour kicks off on July 18 in Texas with a cross-country scavenger hunt and closes with a cross country scavenger hunt ending in Texas on August 15. Check back to the Alamo Drafthouse Website for the final route, dates, films and screening details.

Tell your boss now that you're feeling like you might be under the weather July 18 through August 15, because we want to see you out on with us on the 2007 Rolling Roadshow Tour!
