Happy Dark Knight Rises Day, Kansas City!
It's another beautiful, super hot day (seriously - we're Texans and we're not totally sure how you guys are dealing with this heat wave - woof) and we're gearing up for a marathon of Christian Bale followed by the midnight premiere of what we're pretty sure is going to be on the list of most mind-blowing films of the year. That, however, is not the most exciting thing that's going on today.
Here's the drill. We're about to jump in head first into our own brand of signature programming. It's actually starting NEXT TUESDAY with a special five-course menu option at a screening of Dark Knight Rises! Then, starting August 1st, madness. You can find a list of the upcoming events below, but first - the really good news!
To celebrate Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet’s arrival in Kansas City, we’re giving away some free stuff. How can you win? EASY!
