You might think it's impossible to make the downtown late night scene in Austin more exciting. After all, between the live music, rowdy bars and people-watching on 6th Street, downtown is pretty amusing. But if you're looking for something besides a shot bar or a cover band, the Alamo Ritz theater is now ready to answer your weekend prayers.
Starting Friday, February 15th, we're screening THE BIG LEBOWSKI QUOTE-ALONG on Fridays and the TOTALLY '80s SING-ALONG on Saturdays so you can get your late night fix of entertainment without facing a crowded bar or a long line for the bathroom.
Each Friday around midnight, get ready to abide with the Dude while quoting along and sipping on White Russians. We've subtitled all of your favorite lines so you can use the preferred nomenclature, and we'll be handing out inflatable bats so you can show Larry what happens when you f*ck a stranger up the ass. Stand against aggression with The Dude, yell, "Over the line!" with Walter, and definitely do not f*ck with the Jesus. You can even enjoy The Dude’s favorite recreation (no, not weed) with a giant-sized bowling game on stage before the show. But don’t worry, you won’t be required to roll on Shabbos.
On Saturday nights, the Ritz transforms from a movie theater to a full on dance club with the TOTALLY '80s SING-ALONG. As you read this, our Action Pack DJs are hard at work creating mixes that move from Def Leppard to Madonna with a healthy dose of Depeche Mode to bridge the gap. They’re seamlessly blending a dance party that moves from The Safety Dance to Dancing in the Streets while Whitney Houston cries out that she wants to dance with somebody, and don’t forget every music video is hand subtitled so you won’t just dance, you’ll also be singing along at the top of your lungs. Of course each week we’ll also have an assortment of extra props and favors to make the show a party, so expect plenty of glow sticks, balloons, streamers and more.
Whether you're enjoying a date night or raging like a weekend warrior, head to the Ritz this weekend and take your late night party to the next level.
