Before CANNONBALL RUN, SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT, or FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT, there was VANISHING POINT, the high performance car film that left generations wanting to buy a 1970 Dodge Challenger. For this screening, the Alamo Drafthouse is teaming up with one of our favorite American craft breweries Great Divide, which just so happens to be based in Denver, Colorado, where this ultimate car chase movie begins.    

Our anti-protagonist and his car have 15 hours to get from point A to B, and along they way they encounter naked hippies, racist cops, and a weirdo snake-loving religious revival in the middle of the desert.  All this, plus Cleavon Little as the mystical radio disc jockey named Super Soul make for a must see!  We’ll be pairing all of our favorite beers from Great Divide’s portfolio with gourmet, full throttle foods that add up to pure entertainment for all of your senses!  (John Gross)
