"The Rolling Roadshow Tour is not simply a series of outdoor movie screenings," says Alamo Drafthouse Cinema founder Tim League. "The tour is the culmination of everything we have worked towards at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema: fantastic Cinema happenings with celebrity guests, wacky tie-ins, contests, scavenger hunts and the thrill of watching your favorite movies in the exact locations in which they were filmed."

"I am tremendously excited to be a part of the [Roadshow] experience," says Chuck Dorman, star of the opening film of the tour, Fandango. "I think fan support for this event is going to be unusually high so I'm going to do everything I can to help make it an extremely memorable occasion."

"Tell your boss now that you're feeling like you might be under the weather July 18 through August 15," says Roadshow co-founder Karrie League, "because we want to see you out with us on the 2007 Rolling Roadshow Tour caravan!"

The entire schedule along with details, directions, associated events and celebrity guests is posted on the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema's Rolling Roadshow website: www.rollingroadshow.com. Every screening will also feature an after-party sponsored by Dewar's White Label Scotch.
