Explosive MACHETE advance screening/party BLOW-OUT on Sept 2!

Troublemaker Studios, the Austin Film Society and The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema are excited to announce an explosive sneak preview of MACHETE directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, with Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez leading an all-star cast, on Thursday, September 2 at 8 PM at The Paramount Theater (713 Congress Avenue). All tickets include admission to the official explosion-filled after-party at Austin Studios (1901 E 51st Street).

About the film:

He looked like just another day laborer from the streets, and the perfect fall guy for a crooked political assassination. But he turned out to be Machete (Danny Trejo), a legendary ex-federale with a deadly attitude and the skills to match. Left for dead after clashing with notorious Mexican drug kingpin Torrez (Steven Seagal), Machete has escaped to Texas, looking to disappear and forget his tragic past. But what he finds is a web of corruption and deceit that leaves a bullet in a senator and Machete a wanted man.

Machete sets out to clear his name and expose a deep conspiracy. Helping Machete even the odds are Luz (Michelle Rodriguez)—a sexy taco-truck lady with a rebellious spirit and revolutionary heart, and Padre (Cheech Marin)—a priest who’s good with blessings, but better with guns. Carving a path of bullets, blood, and broken hearts, Machete’s quest ultimately leads him back to Torrez for an epic battle of revenge and redemption.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on at 12 PM Saturday, August 21 through (866) 9PROTIX, or the Paramount Theatre box office. Visit HERE for a direct link to tickets!

All tickets include Q&A with the filmmakers and entrance to the official after-party at Austin Studios.

Special thanks to Troublemaker Studios, The Paramount Theater and The Austin Chronicle.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Texas Filmmakers Production Fund and the Texas Motion Picture Alliance (TXMPA).
