The Four Lions & Badass Digest Excellent Adventure


The Alamo machine is on the road and coming to your town. First we crisscrossed the country this summer with our Rolling Roadshow Tour where we spread the gospel of classic cinema by showing famous movies in famous places and now we are back, taking Four Lions and its director Chris Morris to the streets! The Alamo has two new entities under its umbrella, Drafthouse Films & Badass Digest, that are both on tour this very moment bring the good word of Four Lions directly to you! This is a rare opportunity to be in the same room with the man that brought us The Day Today, Brass Eye and Jam! Chris Morris will be talking with audiences at the Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Boston and New York City screenings of his Jihad satire that critics are calling 'funny,*' 'funny**' and 'funny.***'

Along for the ride is Devin Faraci, editor-in-chief of the Alamo's new nerd lifestyle site, Badass Digest. Devin is keeping a video diary along the way, so keep your eyes peeled to Badass Digest for all of their travel shenanigans, zany truck stop purchases, colorful Q&A characters, and maybe just maybe ... a pillowfight. So tell, your  terrorist-comedy geek buddies to be sure to make it out to the special FREE screenings!
