Cinema Cocktails: HORSE FEATHERS!  Marx Brothers Insanity!

The Marx Brothers in: HORSE FEATHERS Monday 11/15 & Wednesday 11/17, 7:00 @Ritz Advance tickets available here

Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo star in the movie that made them famous. Yes, the Marx Brothers come to the Alamo Drafthouse, bringing their unique brand of anarchy and hilarity to unsuspecting and potentially drunken audiences.

No comedy group was ever as funny, as satirical, or as disrespectful as these four brothers, and HORSE FEATHERS is their tour-de-force, demonstrating the uncanny wit of wiseguy Groucho, the trouble-making hustling of Chico, and the mute antics of Harpo (and Zeppo plays the straight man, as usual).

HORSE FEATHERS has Groucho as Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff, the new president of Huxley College who is interested only in destroying the university and making off with the money and the women. Harpo and Chico, who work in a speakeasy, are mistakenly enlisted to join the college football team as ringers, and the confusion proves overwhelming for the entire student body.

This is a Cinema Cocktails presentation, which means we've got a special cocktail paired with the film: The Bee's Knees, a prohibition-era favorite. Gin, Fresh Lemon Juice, and Honey mixed up and served in a Honey-drizzled cocktail glass - You'll be swept up into a speakeasy circa 1932.

Get your tickets for this great show now.
