Austin News



There are a few films that we're stoked about in the next few months. TRUE GRIT, obviously (our undying love for the Coen Bros shines on), BLACK SWAN opens next week, but TRON: LEGACY, in all of it's shiny 3D glory gives me goosebumps every time I watch the trailer. Now, I'm not saying that it's going to be the most amazing film of all time, but it looks like pure fun. Battles, explosions, lightcycles (!!) - and all in 3D! Not just in 3D, but filmed in 3D. Those of you who saw the CLASH OF THE TITANS remake know how big of a difference that is.

So - to celebrate our excitement, we want to psych everyone else up as well! That's why we're introducing the ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE TRON PHOTO CONTEST! Here's how it's going to work: We want to see you in the grid! Take a photo of yourself (alone or with one other person) in the Tron grid. Be creative! Be crafty! Want to spend a billion dollars on a light cycle? Awesome! Wanna show your creativity with duck tape and glow sticks? Amazing! Want to go old school, original Tron style? Do it! Show us a costume, a backdrop, whatever, wherever. This is all open to your interpretation. Just make it Tron-y!

Your photo must be submitted to our Alamo Drafthouse Facebook fan page. You'll post it directly to the wall, by using the 'Add Photo' feature.

Once you upload the photo, in the "Say something about this photo..." box, include the following information: First & last name (if the photo is selected as a winner, this will be the recipient of the prize even if others are in the photo), your Alamo city (Austin, Houston/Katy, San Antonio, Winchester), and what you used for your costume (any prop secrets you wish to divulge!). The detail of the costume is optional, but the name and city must be included to be eligible for competition.

All images must be submitted to our Facebook page by Monday, December 13th at 5pm CST! We'll announce the winner via Facebook on Wednesday, December 15th by 3pm.

"But what's in it for me?" Glad you asked, skeptical potential participator! How about two tickets to see Tron whenever you'd like PLUS a $20 food/drink voucher?! That sounds like a pretty sweet evening to me. While regular movie passes aren't valid for the first couple weeks of a first run film, these two passes will be redeemable for Tron tickets only, even on opening weekend! Keep in mind that you'll have to redeem them ahead of time if you want to get tickets before they're sold out. They won't be redeemable online.

We'll be giving away 4 of these prizes (one in each city), so everyone is competing against their fellow citizens. We're really excited to see what you've got in store for us! TRRROOOONNNN!

Quick recap: All photos must be submitted to the Alamo Drafthouse Facebook fan page by Monday, December 13th at 5pm CST. All photos submitted after the deadline will not be eligible for prizes. Photos submitted to this blog post will NOT be eligible.
