New free show this weekend: Red Bull X-Fighters

Last weekend I had the thrill of heading up to the Ft. Worth Stockyards for the first ever Red Bull X-Fighters to be held on American soil. If you aren't familiar with it, X-Fighters is a single elimination battle between the best freestyle motorcross jumpers in the world. They turned the stockyards into the most insane freestyle jump course in history and had the riders launch from the bullriding chutes. Watch the trailer for a taste of the action or you can check out photos from the event on our Flickr page. When I was growing up I thought that Evel Knievel was the most insane freak on the planet for what he did. These guys are only about 21 years old and make Evel (may he rest in peace) look like a shrinking violet. No joke, you must see this stuff to believe it, and see it you will on our giant movie screen this Sunday.

We're hosting an official Red Bull watch party of the TV broadcast premiere of X-Fighters at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. The broadcast starts at Sunday, June 22 at 2:30 PM, admission is free.

The show is amazing, and I hope you guys can make it out. The Red Bull hospitality team will be on hand with goodies for the attendees.

If you are a fan of the Alamo Drafthosue Facebook page, please RSVP on our show page there so we can estimate how many folks are coming. You may want to join that group anyhow, that's where you will find out about the latest Alamo Drafthouse news, events and free screening offers!
