We're kicking off a new Color Commentary series, and Flash himself is going to be our first participant! 


This fall, we're taking the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton to spectacular new highs. We've been busy dreaming up new series and putting together new special events, and we're very excited that one of these is Color Commentary. This is an ongoing program where we invite someone involved with a film to provide a live commentary track during a screening.    We're proud to announce that our very first Color Commentary guest is Sam Jones, who will be attending our screening of FLASH GORDON on Saturday, October 19 at 7:00.

Mr. Jones will be watching FLASH GORDON right alongside our guests, but we won't be making him adhere to our strict No Talking policy.  Instead, he's going to sit up front and offer live commentary on his 1980 cult classic.   This won't be the usual Q&A setup of haivng an actor talk before or after the film. Mr. Jones will be commenting during the film itself.   All bets are off, and all lines will be crossed as Jones shares his favorite behind-the-scenes stories and cuts loose on the film that made him a geek god.  

In additon to the Color Commentary screening, we'll also be having a Super Costume Ball following the film. Dress up in your best sci-fi or superhero (or non-superhero -- creativity will be applauded!) costume, and come mingle with Sam and other Halloween enthusiasts in our lobby.  Excellent costumes will be rewarded with a costume contest -- and you may just get a special prize (and judgment!) from Flash himself!

So, join us at Alamo Drafthouse Littleton on Saturday, October 19  at 7:00 for Color Commentary: FLASH GORDON with Sam Jones! And start planning your costume for the Super Costume Ball, because we're expecting you to bring the Halloween awesome, as only Alamo family can.
