We love movies. It's just a natural fact. It's a fact nearly as natural that we love parties. And there is a certain kind of magic when these mutual loves come together in our theaters. It's a time when we can come together in celebration of those movies we can never get enough of. Add in themed food, drinks, and obsessive little details, and you've got a blow-out that can be like Christmas, Halloween, and New Year's all rolled up into one.
We’ve thrown a lot of movie parties over the years, but now we are looking for YOUR ideas. We want to know: What's your ULTIMATE MOVIE PARTY?
It's simple: You dream up your ULTIMATE MOVIE PARTY idea. We make it happen.
Is there a personal favorite you've always thought was just begging to be screened? Always wanted to have an End-of-The-World party with ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK AND live brawling on stage? The MUSIC MAN with a live marching band? STAND BY ME with a blueberry pie-eating contest?
It's YOUR ULTIMATE MOVIE PARTY. That means YOU choose all the elements: What's on screen, the food, the drink, the props and all the other special nuances -- EVERYTHING! The events team at the Alamo will do everything in our power to facilitate your cinematic whims.
Five finalists and one Grand Prize will be chosen per city. Each of the Grand Prize winners get their party thrown FOR FREE and can invite up to FIFTY of their close personal friends to attend!
Visit the ULTIMATE PARTY TAB on Facebook for rules, details, and to submit your idea. Deadline for submissions is Feb 20, 2013.

*The fine print: Finalists will be chosen by the Alamo programming and events teams. Parties submitted are subject to film/theatrical rights availability, must take place inside an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema location (i.e. no Rolling Roadshow outdoor or off-site screenings), and will be subject to minor modifications to ensure we can actually make it happen. Also, please, no parties centered on celebrity guests. Hey, we all want to hang out with Kurt Russell … but he’s a really busy guy… and it would probably cost a small fortune in travel expenses.
