Keith Coogan, who starred as Kenny in DON'T TELL  MOM THE BABYSITTER'S DEAD, is coming to the Alamo Drafthouse! We'll be showing a rare 35mm print of the film followed by a live Q&A!

No rules. No curfews. No nagging. No pulse.

Mom's taking a multi-month vacation to Australia and leaving her five kids at home with a babysitter. Of course, the second Mom’s gone, the friendly, old lady turns the house into her own personal reign of that ultimately ends with her very own she-devil geriatric demise via heart attack. So, the kids do what any normal child would do in that situation: they lock her up in a steamer trunk and abandon her dead body at a mortuary with a sweet note that says "Nice Old Lady Inside. Died of Natural Causes!" Seventeen year-old Sue Ellen (Christina Applegate) loses a bet where the loser forced to get a job to feed and support the needy siblings, and she somehow manages to scam her way into a job at a hip Los Angeles fashion company while the eldest brother Kenny (Keith Coogan) acts as the stay-at-home mom. What could go wrong?!

Dripping with magical '90s nostalgia from the director of BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, DON'T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER'S DEAD is two great movies in one. What starts out as a dark comedy soon morphs into a '90s dream girl fantasy in this morbid tale of dead old ladies and high fashion. Applegate and Coogan lead an all-star cast that features a Clown Dog weiner-pushing dreamboat Josh Charles and an ultra slimey David Duchovny. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and after the show you will be treated to a LIVE Q&A with pot-smoking, waffle-making specialist KEITH COOGAN. BANGARANG! (Greg MacLennan)

*Keith Coogan will be here for a double-feature that starts with a Girlie Night screening of ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING.
