Keith Coogan, who starred as Brad in ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING, is coming to the Alamo Drafthouse for a live Q&A after this screening!

When ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING was released in 1987, it took audiences on a wild, ridiculous ride through the streets of Chicago while making babysitting look way more awesome than it actually is. Almost thirty years later, it's still just as funny, just as zany and just as full of vital wisdom.

What's the best song to listen to while preparing for a hot date? "And Then He Kissed Me." Should you accept help from a trucker with a claw hand? Absolutely! Is it a good idea to date guys with a license plate that reads "So Cool"? Definitely not. Should you ever venture into a Chicago bus station? HELL NO. Is it creepy for a college guy to hit on a high school girl? Not in a movie! And the greatest lesson of all? Say it with me now: Don't f*ck with the babysitter!!!

So if you need a refresher on important life lessons, or if you're just craving some adventure, join us for this special screening with Keith Coogan live in person! We'll cheer for Brad when he takes a knife in the foot, drool over Thor (Vincent D'Onfrio what?!!) and pump our fists when Daryl kicks Mike McDouchebag straight into a table. Now that is so cool.
