Austinites: Join us Sunday, May 29th, 10am, Alamo Ritz for all the original PLANET OF THE APES jams, back-to-back!
Tickets available now!
The more intelligent among us are already aware that man is NOT the dominant creature on this planet. Dozens — maybe hundreds — of species lay in wait to assume rightful control of civilization. But since 1968, the most celebrated of these potential usurpers are our primate brethren: Apes. Chimps, gorillas, orangutans; the works. Like us, they’re bipedal, capable of communication and have opposable thumbs, but these clearly superior animals have figured out how to live without rent, bills or big-screen TVs. We’re doomed.
On Sunday May 29, we puny humans will humbly pay respect to our future masters with a COMPLETE 35MM MARATHON of the original classic APES epics! Back-to-back archival screenings of PLANET OF THE APES, BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES, ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES, CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES! That’s over 8 armageddonlicious hours of blazing gorilla warfare, featuring many of Hollywood’s most famous n’ finest — in and out of ape-face makeup.
So join us as we celebrate our final days as the alpha anthropoids! This one-time-only event will transport us back to a time before mankind showed its weaknesses by creating movie remakes and digital special effects, but also rocket us forward to our inescapable future as neanderthal slaves. We’ll be offering ape-centric menu specials and will have other surprises on hand. But most of all, we’ll be immersed in the infinite joys of our impending extinction…as we BATTLE to ESCAPE from BENEATH the CONQUEST of our PLANET on the DAY OF THE AAAAAAAAAPES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
