Alamo Lamar and Village - Grindhouse exclusive!

Clearly, the Alamo Drafthouse is the only theater to go check out the new grindhouse flick; there is no other theater in the modern era so fully steeped in the grindhouse tradition. With our weekly Terror Thursday and Weird Wednesday grindhouse screenings, we have developed a diehard fanatic cult following for the genre. Speaking of which, if you enjoy yourself at Grindhouse, you should definitely plan on joining us at the Alamo downtown for these series. Every week we show two different grindhouse films (one Wednesday, one Thursday) on 35mm with a passel of vintage trailers to get the night started. Check out the Weird Wednesday and Terror Thursday signature pages to see the upcoming films. Quentin Tarantino himself has been known to attend these shows whenever he is in town.

For the opening of Grindhouse, we'll have a veritable cornacopia of vintage grindhouse trailers, plus once the film starts, experience the film even more fully with our specially-themed menu, featuring two meals taken directly from each of the films in Grindhouse.

The Alamo Village and the Alamo Lamar are the ONLY two theaters in the entire nation who are authorized to screen Grindhouse on Thursday at 11 PM. If that isn't a testiment as to where you should see the most kick-ass movie of the modern age, I'm not sure what else to tell you.

Not sold? Check out the only Grindhouse review you need to read courtesy of Ain't It Cool News. Read that and see if your grandma on her deathbed could keep you away.

Need even more? Hobo With A Shotgun creators and winners of the SXSW Grindhouse Trailer competition, Jason Eisener, Rob Cotterill, and John Davies have sent us a very special "Hobo with a Shotgun don't talk at the Alamo PSA," which will premiere at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in front of Grindhouse.

I got the chance to check out Grindhouse at the AFS premiere last week, and I give you my word, this mad Frankenstein of a movie packs more punches than a whole multiplex full of films.
