Pan’s Labyrinth is the most successful film to EVER play the Alamo


It's official, Pan's Labyrinth has officially shattered all box office records at the Alamo Drafthouse. It's taken out Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, King Kong, Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman Begins, Harry Potter and even Star Wars. This speaks VOLUMES about the city of Austin and makes me very proud to be a part of a community where a Spanish subtitled R-rated fairy tale outgrosses Star Wars. Everyone should pause for a moment and slap a long-distance virtual high-five with former Austin resident Guillermo Del Toro for creating the most kick-ass Alamo movie of all-time.

Pan's Labyrinth continues this week at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. If you haven't seen it, do so very soon. We will only have it until April 5, when it is replaced by Grindhouse, which if I am not severely mistaken, will be taking a shot at the top 5 shortly.
