Finally, after months of anticipation, the Coen Brothers' new film NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is here. I've seen it twice and I'm going to see it again. It's that good. For a while there it seemed like the Coens' were going to fall off my radar. I wasn't a fan of their last few movies but this one is every bit as classic as RAISING ARIZONA, MILLER'S CROSSING and FARGO.
To maximize the experience, our chef Trish Eichelberger has created an old-school West Texas Blue Plate Special with a delectable Chicken Fried Steak. Menu here. We also have the Texas brews iced down and ready to sling. It will be a theatrical experience you'll be proud to share with your friends.
And while I know some people feel like they can wait for the Criterion Collection DVD of this - I humbly submit that you must see NO COUNTRY... in the theater, waiting until it's on DVD won't do. The photography and sound design must be experienced in the theater. And no theater has better projection and sound equipment than the Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz. Unlike other theaters, who skimp on light to save a dollar here and there, we give it as much light as it needs and we tune up our audio for crystal clarity. We worship movies and the theater is our church. Please join us at the altar of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN at the Ritz.
