Join us for a special screening of TRAILER WAR from Drafthouse on Sunday 12/9 at Lamar. The Blu-Ray will be for sale on site and you can buy a combo ticket that admits you to the screening and gets you a hot-off-the-presses disc of the Greatest Trailer Compilation Ever.
Unleashed from the vaults of Austin's American Genre Film Archive, we present a meticulously-curated selection of the best, strangest, and most amazing coming attraction trailers in the world! Most have never been available in any home format, and all are presented in TRAILER WAR!
From the high flying, explosive metal mayhem of STUNT ROCK to THUNDER COPS' disembodied flying head chaos, each 3 minute masterpiece is like a beckoning portal to another, more exciting dimension. It's a crippling overdose of towering flames, mechanized destruction, lurking fear, poor sexual choices and spiritual devastation on an apocalyptic scale. You might want to have a cornea donor standing by just in case...because THIS IS GOING TO BURN!
Presented in collaboration with the American Genre Film Archive, with additional support from Drafthouse Films, we look forward to sharing this evening of eye-popping, gut-punching glory with you! (Sam Prime)

Note: this is a screening of the high-definition remastered TRAILER WAR DCP.
