Get ready to take a dusty ride through cinema's best westerns ... and fill yer belly while yer at it. 


When we first opened the doors of the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton, one of our very first signature events was The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Spaghetti Dinner.  It was an enormous success, and we've been as eager to revive it as the Littleton audience has been to attend it.  

So, without further ado, we're excited to announce our new Western Wednesday series.  Beginning on October 2, we'll be screening a variety of Western films on the Wednesday of every month, with special Saturday encores for particularly popular selections.  Instead of restricting it to simply spaghetti westerns (as terrific as they are!), we decided to open up the series to screen all classics of the genre. How can we resist the oppertunity to play everyone from John Ford to Sergio Corbucci, and see every gunslinger from Gary Cooper to Franco Nero strut their spurs across the screen?

Depending on the film, we'll be offering two delicious special menu options.  If we're screening an Italian western, we'll be offering all-you-can-eat spaghetti.  If we're screening an American film, we'll be offering a special BBQ "cowboy plate" that Chef Seth Rexroad designed after the John Ford classic, THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE.   Of course, our entire Alamo menu will be available as well, so you can order up whatever grub suits your fancy after that long and dusty ride to the Alamo.

Our first film on Wednesday, October 2 will be the classic FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, presented in stunning 35mm.    We'll follow it up on Wednesday, October 9 with the original DJANGO.    On Wednesday, October 16 we'll be screening HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER, in honor of its 40th Anniversary this year.    We'll be announcing additional titles shortly, and welcome all audience feedback as to what you would like to see, as this is a series that's truly rose out of popular demand. Tickets are on sale for A FEW DOLLARS MORE now, with DJANGO and HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER to follow.  

Don't let anyone tell you the Western is dead. It's alive and well at the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton!
