June is upon us, and while we're SO down for the official launch of summer, there's another fantastic reason to celebrate - Pride Month! While our staff will be celebrating Pride for the entire month of June, we're going to dial in our specialty programming in the week leading up to June 16's Pridefest! The lineup: June 11: THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT June 12: A FANTASTIC WOMAN and MILK June 13: GREASE Sing-Along (times three!) June 15 finale: WOMEN WHO KILL, with writer and director Ingrid Jungermann in the house for a live Q&A! June 16: We'll see you at Pridefest! Thank you to GLSEN, The Glo Center, MOSAIC, UNO, Spectrum, LGBTQ+ and Ally Alliance at MSU, and Drury Allies for providing LGBTQ resources and education to the Ozarks!
Alamo Drafthouse DFW Programmer James Wallace sat down with the new Chewbacca - Joonas Suotamo - to talk SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY and what it was like to fill the big furry feet of the iconic role, the advice he got from Peter Mayhew on the set of THE FORCE AWAKENS and THE LAST JEDI, and what it's like to walk the Wookiee walk and talk the Wookiee talk...or...eh...roar.
