The Alamo Guide for June 10th!

Share This:

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

Hello Alamo Fans!Just in case you haven't heard the news by now: Tim League, owner and founder of The Alamo Drafthouse, has returned as CEO of ALL the Alamo's! That means more fun for everyone involved! The big announcment was last week, but in case you forgot to check your email, now you know! Surprise! This also means that if you were signed up for the Alamo Lake Creek newsletter and "Original Alamo" newsletter, you'll only get one now. See how we make that easier for you? Oh you know.. we do what we can...

Events are happening! This is your very last chance to get tickets for THE BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY FEAST! I believe there are maybe 20 tickets left. You do NOT want to miss out on what we have planned for you, so splurge a little bit. It's for your own good. If you can't splurge, and have maybe $5 lying around, perhaps you should spend it on a ticket for ZZANG!!! This month's ZZANG!!! movie is ZAPPED! and Scott Baio reveals boobies with his mind. Quality entertainment, y'all.

Austin's own writer/director, Bryan Poyser is going to be presenting screenings of his newest film, LOVERS OF HATE. It got amazing reviews and praise at SXSW and Sundance, and we highly recommend checking it out. If you're a sporty kind of fella, or maybe only an occasional sports viewers, or you're like me and find most soccer players ridiculously attractive, then perhaps you'd be interested to know that we're playing a LOT of 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP games starting this weekend at both Lake Creek and Lamar. Fun! And much more fun below!






ZZANG!!! presents ZAPPED!

ZZANG!!! 80s INSANITY UNLEASHED:

ZAPPED!

Truly the most zzangin' scifi boner comedy of the '80s!!! Some would say ZAPPED! is simply the story of a high school chemist who gains the power to unhook bras with his brain. BUT!... they'd be neglecting to mention that it's a NUCLEAR DETONATION OF PURE ENTERTAINMENT!

LOVERS OF HATE

LOVERS OF HATE

DIRECTOR BRYAN POYSER LIVE IN PERSON!

In this delicious tale of deceit and sibling rivalry, two adult brothers represent failure and success. LOVERS OF HATE delicately balances humor and despair while pushing characters to painful and hilarious extremes.

Adventures in Babysitting

GIRLIE NIGHT PRESENTS:

ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING

Life lessions you learn from this film: Is it a good idea to date guys with a license plate that reads "So Cool"? Definitely not. Is it creepy for a college guy to hit on a high school girl? Not in a movie! Most importantly, don't eff with the babysitter. For real.
