This November the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas at West Oaks and Mason Park will be screening the documentary RISE & SHINE: THE JAY DEMERIT STORY.

Jay DeMerit dreamed of playing pro soccer out of college. Unfortunately, he instead found himself sleeping in an attic, painting houses and eating beans and toast to survive. Deciding to chase after his dreams in an all or nothing gamble, DeMerit moved to Europe at the age of 21 with only a passport, $1500 and no professional experience to speak off.

RISE & SHINE follows DeMerit as he journeys from the bottom — playing in Sunday park leagues and lower level division London clubs — to his time in the English Premier Leagues and eventually starting in the 2010 World Cup. 

Whether you're a fan of soccer or just have a jonesing for inspirational stories of underdogs achieving their dream, do yourself a favor and catch RISE & SHINE: THE JAY DEMERIT STORY during its run at our Houston theaters. 

Thursday, November 3 @ 7 PM — West Oaks

Wednesday, November 9 @ 6:55 PM — Mason Park
