Experience A WHOLE DAY TO DIE HARD at The Ritz this Wednesday!!

"Do you really think you can beat me...Mr. Cowboy?
"Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker."

One man, against the odds, with no shoes . . . taking out everybody in his path!

John McClane is a demigod among men. Created in a primordial ooze of stale beer and cigarette ash, he was gifted unto this Earth to be a stand in for the every man but became the only man...well the only man that mattered. Cops, C.I.A., terrorists...they all try to stand up to THE man, but he cuts them down with his wit and then beats them down with his fists.

When it comes to John McClane it's hard to say which movie is your favorite, though one entry might be higher or lower on your personal list, they all feature your favorite Bruce being your favorite McClane and so they all inherently become better than everything else. Which is why the Alamo Drafthouse and Tough Guy Cinema are celebrating every DIE HARD film back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to back with A WHOLE DAY TO DIE HARD.

You think that's a long marathon? Try bare-foot running over broken glass and taking out a building full of terrorists on only a pack of menthols and a stale Twinkie. When you get tired, you think of how hard it might be if you were hungover as shit ,solving brain-busters
with Samuel L. Jackson screaming in your ear and a school full of children hang in the balance. No one said this was going to be easy, this is a battle of attrition and if you are man (or woman) enough to make it to the end, you're going to be rewarded with a reunion with your favorite cowboy in A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD.

Not only are we putting all five films up on the big screen for your non-stop enjoyment, but we're giving everyone in attendance a FREE COLLECTIBLE METAL LIGHTER, so if you ever find yourself stuck in a vent with no lights, on a runaway with a trail of gasoline or just smoking your last cigarette...your pretty much covered. 

We've also unearthed some of our favorite Bruce Willis trailers to share with you (and maybe more musical Bruno than you can handle) and like any true marathon, we're going to have some very special menu items only available at this event.

Sure, you could JUST go to work this Wednesday... but did John McClane ever JUST go to work? Being a hero is a full-time job and we're going to need you, so grab a Twinkie, put on a filthy tank top and tell your boss to suck it, because this Wednesday we're doing A WHOLE DAY TO DIE HARD!
