Join us this Thursday at either Houston Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for a special Pint Night with one of your favorite local breweries.
Southern Star Brewing will join us Thursday, October 3 for a pint night at our Vintage Park location. We will feature Southern Star Valkyrie on cask and will also have Buried Hatchet in cans and Blonde Bombshell on tap. Omar, from Southern Star, will be on hand at the theater with free pint glasses. Come and talk beer!
At Mason Park, we will be hosting Saint Arnold Brewing Company. A local rep will be on hand with pint glasses and we’ll have specials on Oktoberfest, Elissa and Santo. In addition, we’ll have bottles of Amber, Lawnmower and Root Beer.
While you’re at the theater on Thursday, come and see an early screening of GRAVITY in 2D or 3D. I had the pleasure of seeing GRAVITY last night and I dug it something fierce. I'm the type of guy who never passes up an opportunity to ride in a flight simulator or experience some extra gimmick when watching a movie and GRAVITY is - in many ways - GIMMICK: THE MOVIE.
That said, there's something deeper at play in the film - something that manages to overcome what could have been a critical case of cleverness. The film has a ton of heart and emotional power. It has strong performances and beautiful cinematography. It's a movie that is equal parts technical craft and artistic expression.
I highly recommend watching it on the big screen - and in 3D too. This is a movie that needs to be experienced like a theme park ride. Be one of the first to see the film and enjoy some tasty brew and free pint glasses from two amazing local breweries. What could be a better way to spend your Thursday night?
