Fantastic Fest and AICN present Guillermo del Toro live with Hellboy II, July 8
As many of you are already aware, the most awesomest thing that ever was, is or will be is happening next week in Austin. Director Guillermo del Toro is personally bringing his film HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar next Tuesday, July 8, for a free advance screening and Q&A after the film!
Our theater has already been inundated with calls and emails frantically requesting seats and information. Not that we didn't expect this madness when we booked the event, but it must be properly set up here at the onset that seating is unfortunately limited and not everyone will get in. Due to the incredibly high demand for these tickets, the only people who are even eligible to get in are the Fantastic Fest Badge Holders.
If you have not purchased a Fantastic Fest badge, please check out our website for more information about the event. Badges start at $40 for the 2008 Fest and I dare say, it's the most fun week of the entire year at the Alamo. Fantastic Fest features screenings of over 65 of the best new action, horror, science fiction and fantasy films of the year and is the largest event of its kind in the United States. We have reserved a section of seats for existing Fantastic Fest badge holders (this offer has already been sent), but have reserved a section of seats for new badge purchasers as well. There will be more events for Fantastic Fest badge holders only leading up to the festival, so if you are on the fence, now is a good time to commit.
If you are interested in getting in to this event, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with I'LL BE DAMNED in the subject line (NO MORE NO LESS, SCREW THAT UP AND YOU WON'T BE CONSIDERED) and include the exact name of the person who purchased the badge. When the list has been made, we will post the names on the Alamo Blog at www.originalalamo.blogspot.com. Each badge is good for one  ticket, but that DOES NOT mean that if you have a badge you automatically have a ticket.
Good luck and we hope to see you both on July 8, but also on September 18 for Fantastic Fest 2008.
