You might think we created our Afternoon Tea series just to have an excuse to nibble on delicious British baked goods. Or you might think we started it as a reason to watch period films with gorgeous costumes and classy British accents. Well, congrats, smarty pants, because you’re correct on both counts!
This month, we're savoring the Austen classic SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, featuring luminous performances by Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet set against the beautiful English countryside. The Academy Award-winning screenplay highlights the thrilling (but always polite!) drama and heartbreak of Jane Austen’s novel, complete with secret engagements, scoundrels and the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood. Feel as elegant and refined as the Dashwood sisters while you sip on tea, and swoon with a scone over the adorable Hugh Grant and exceedingly dashing Alan Rickman. Whether your inheritance is £5000 or £500 a year, everyone is invited to this delightful and delectable afternoon! (Sarah Pitre)
We’re teaming up with Independent Film Channel to make Sunday nights just a little more fun for movie fans! Beginning in January 2014, we will join forces for “IFC and Alamo Drafthouse Slightly Off Cinema Sundays,” with thematically paired movie line-ups every Sunday night both at our theaters and on IFC. Each month there’s a new theme and a new line-up of movies!
We’re kicking things off in January with a theme of Novel Flicks — movies based on bestselling books like FIGHT CLUB and SENSE AND SENSIBILITY at Alamo and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN to THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST on IFC.
