Spend Father’s Day with the TENENBAUMS
THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS
Father's Day Feast and Big Screen Classic screenings
Starting Sunday, June 21, at the Alamo Ritz
Advance tickets available here
For all you fathers out there, let Royal be your coach. Sure, maybe he doesn't have the patience or the taste for child-rearing, but when it comes time to reap the benefits of having loved ones, those old paternal blades get mighty sharp.
Father's Day has always been a tricky one for film-programming, and usually it results with something like THE WILD BUNCH or BULLET, some machismo Man's-Man testostorama which really has nothing to do with what it means to be a man, especially a father. There are no cage fights in THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, but there are car wrecks, severed fingers and rooftop falconing...so, it's not a wash. Gene Hackman gives one of his all time best performances as Royal Tenenbaum, a once dead-beat Dad who now says he's dying in order to bring his family of former-geniuses back together. Hilariously off-beat but still keeping it's heart, this Wes Anderson jam fits squarely into the circle peg of true family relationships.
With a mouthwatering Father's Day Feast for only $25 extra, featuring:
Bloody Mary Gazpacho
with Basil Infused Vodka "Float"
Royal T Bone topped with Smoked Oyster Mushroom Demi Glace on Pearl Cous Cous and Brussel Sprout Hash
Bourbon Bread Pudding
Toasted Pecan, Caramel, Shaved Dark Chocolate
For you dad-less and/or son-less Wes Anderson fans out there, please note that THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS will play later in the week as part of the Alamo's Big Screen Classics series.
