TRON: co-hosted by First Showing

Alamo Drafthouse is recreating the “Summer of 1982” to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the greatest summer of movies… ever! From May through July, the theater will replicate 1982’s earth-shaking release schedule, screening eight of the biggest genre classics on the same weekends they were released exactly 30 years ago.

Attention all Users! Follow us back to a beautiful page in history, before computer games required a two-week vacation from work and digitally-generated special effects dimmed the stars of Hollywood. When the visual magic of TRON hit the screen in 1982, every jaw in the world hit the theater floors. And for our money, CGI hasn't been this good since. Join synaptic superwarriors Clu (Jeff Bridges), Tron and Ram as they wage their epic battle against the wicked Master Control Program in the only high-impact/low-tech epic of good versus evil to predict our modern digital age, kind of! TRON!!! (Zack Carlson)

“As a lifelong geek, there's nothing like the original TRON, nothing like the experience of stepping inside a video game, visualized in stunning ways that were groundbreaking for the time. It doesn't matter how well this did at the box office, it was the nerd-driven ideas behind it, Steve Lisberger's passion for making it exactly the way he wanted, the cult following it ultimately gained and those unforgettable CGI visuals that make it iconic even 30 years later. The names Flynn and Tron will live on in geek history forever!” (Alex Billington, FIRSTSHOWING.NET)
