The world is getting soft. We are getting soft. As civilization slowly marches towards a future full of politically correct, health food conscious, light beer sipping emotional marshmallows that don't know how to take a punch, it is becoming evident that we, as a society, need to relearn how to be a badass. The Alamo Drafthouse is here to help with a monthly series dedicated to teaching the art of badassery.

Every month, we’ll screen a film that has proven itself to be badass. Screened from a 35mm print, these movies are the cinematic equivalent of wearing sunglasses, a leather jacket and chewing on a toothpick.

In conjunction with each month's screening, we will host a special guest from the community as they teach the audience a badass technique. If humanity is to survive long enough into the future to enjoy flying cars and colonies on Mars, we are going to need to learn how to toughen up. Starting this May, class in in session — one movie at a time.

This month: Beverly Hills Cop in 35mm!

Join us as we travel back to 1984 - back when Eddie Murphy was still a badass and Martin Brest was making some pretty badass action films. Murphy is Axel Foley, a street-smart Detroit cop who heads to Beverly Hills, California to solve the murder of his best friend. Come early because we're teaching you how to put a banana in a tail pipe!
