Celebrate the New Year with THE APARTMENT Feast at the Ritz!!

Be a mensch!

Sure, you could sit down for an overpriced meal and make casual conversation with your significant other this New Year's Eve...OR you could sit down and watch one of the greatest films ever made paired with a truly spectacular feast and have a New Year's Eve you will never forget!

A young upstart, C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon), will do anything to move up in the world...even loan out his apartment to the higher-ups for their romantic flings and extramarital trysts. All seems relatively fine and dandy until C.C. finds a romance of his own.

Billy Wilder is a genius—I don't have enough space in this blog to describe all the films he's made and express how much he means to cinema—but, in 1960, Billy Wilder wrote and directed a perfect movie. I'm not saying this to sell you on the idea of seeing this film at the Alamo; I'm stating it as a fact. There are very few instances where you watch a movie and realize you are witnessing pure magnificence in that moment.

Sometimes you think about a movie after the fact, and it gets better and better until you begin to love a movie you previously only really liked. THE APARTMENT is NOT one of those movies. It is a movie where, within 15 minutes of watching, you realize it is unlike anything you have ever seen before.

Jack Lemmon is amazing, Shirley MacLaine is a full-on pixie, super babe, and the chemistry and dialogue snaps and sparkles like you wouldn't believe. The print we're showing is incredible, and, if that's not enough for you, we have a five-course meal that would make a king blush.

So, if you're looking for a reason to impress that special someone (or just treat yourself) on the last day of the year, look no further! Sit back, relax, and let Billy Wilder and The Alamo Drafthouse super chefs do all the heavy lifting for you. Get your tickets to this special event NOW!! (Greg MacLennan)

**Note: We know that parking downtown can be a real drag. That's why we are providing parking for everyone attending THE APARTMENT NEW YEAR'S EVE FEAST in the St. David's parking garage located right around the corner on Trinity between 7th and 8th. All you have to do is show your Alamo booking number to the parking attendant when you arrive!
