Join the couple in Greece with this Mediterranean-centered four-course feast designed by Alamo Chef Trish Eichelberger and completed with Greek wine pairings chosen by Beverage Director Bill Norris.


We love BEFORE MIDNIGHT and have already given it the Drafthouse Recommends stamp of approval. To further celebrate our adoration for this cinematic gem Alamo Chef Trish Eichelberger designed this Mediterranean-centered four-course feast complete with Greek wine pairings chosen by Alamo Beverage Director Bill Norris. This special menu is only available at The BEFORE MIDNIGHT Feast at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane on Wednesday, June 5th. Tickets are available now and include all food and drink listed as well as admission to the movie. 


BEFORE MIDNIGHT is the third installment, following BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET, in Richard Linklater’s dramatic saga about fate and love told through the story of two lovers: Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke).

This time around we meet up with the couple in Greece. They are happy together, but all the romantic idealism they shared in their youth is almost all but gone. Now they’re left facing the everyday universal problems and issues of modern day relationships. Linklater, Hawke and Delpy have grown with these characters over the last 18 years and that’s the key to what makes their story and arc beautifully real and organic. What the three writers have done is quite astounding by making a film that, if you’re a fan of the first two, is a fully rewarding chapter of Jesse and Celine’s story while also being a great movie on its own.

BEFORE MIDNIGHT doesn’t shy away from the hard realities of modern relationships. Instead it lingers in those emotional truths most films don’t even want to acknowledge. It counters this while simultaneously being full of humor and joy as well. The combination makes it an emotionally complex and fully satisfying work of art.
