After a fantastic summer season, Aquasana's SOUND & CINEMA series is continuing into the fall with four more Wednesdays of live music and great movies on the lawn at the Long Center! And this season we're going a little bit bigger than we did over the summer, too...

First up we have the most irresponsible Quote-Along the Action Pack has ever produced - BLAZING SADDLES. Make sure you bring along plenty of "harumphs!" because you'll definitely need them. Then get ready to quote-along with all of your favorite racial slurs that have ever been put to celluloid!

Before the movie, we'll have live music from THE POSSUM POSSE, who will be performing their hit YouTube sensation GUY ON A BUFFALO live on stage! If you haven't seen GUY ON A BUFFALO YET, btw, do yourself a favor and right that wrong right now:

So much goodness!

Sound & Cinema events are 100% free to the public thanks to presenting sponsor Aquasana, the Austin-based makers of best-in-class home water filtration systems, who will be on site with free, filtered, great-tasting water for every event.

In addition to the featured entertainment, visitors can enjoy dining from Food Truck favorites including Frank, The Peached Tortilla, Yeti Frozen Custard, Garbo's, Boomerang's and Whole Foods, all of which will be set up on the Long Center’s City Terrace.  Beer, wine, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for sale by the Long Center. Guests are also welcome to bring their own non-alcoholic drinks or food to picnic on the lawn. 

The Food Trailers will be open by 7pm, and the sunset concerts will begin at 8pm each evening. The movie will immediately follow (after it gets dark).

What you CAN bring:

Folding Chairs, Blankets, personal coolers (non-alcoholic beverages only).

What you CAN'T bring:

Alcoholic beverages, drugs, weapons or anything illegal, off-leash or loud pets.

Free car2go drop zone parking! Please consider reducing traffic congestion by taking a car2go, biking, walking, or ride-sharing to the event. car2go parking will be available for all events at Long Center main entrance on Riverside. Additional parking available in the Long Center garage.

AUSTIN SOUND & CINEMA is a co-production of Do512 and the Alamo Drafthouse, and is brought to you with the generous support of our 2013 sponsors: Aquasana, Car2Go, AutoNation Toyota, Deep Eddy Vodka, Google, Aio and The Long Center.
