Alamo Drafthouse Guide (12/1-12/7): The Drafthouse Rocks Rare Exports and All-You-Can-Eat Cheese Pizza

The Alamo Drafthouse has quickly garnered a reputation as one of the greatest movie theaters in the history of mankind…or at least the history of movie theaters. With their signature events, ample food and drink selection, and strict no-talking policy, they make obsolete all tawdry multiplexes and completely redefine the movie-going experience. Here’s what they’re up to this week!

 
Thursday December 1st
 
Action Pack: Die Hard
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
Yippe Kai Yay, motherf***er. Die Hard may just be the ultimate Tough Guy movie. With John McClane, Bruce Willis created a Tough Guy who was instantly relatable but still impossibly awesome. Because even though he single-handedly takes down Hans Gruber's entire gang of terrorists while roaming around an office building barefoot, he still lets us see how vulnerable he is and that makes him all the more badass. Join us this holiday season as we pay tribute to the movie that's inspired screenwriters for two decades to pitch projects as "It's like Die Hard, but in a _____________," as we enjoy Die Hard on the big screen with cap guns to shoot-along with and live explosions from the Action Pack.”—Henri Mazza via Drafthouse.com
 
 
The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing-Along
 
“We've got to find Jack! There's only 11 months left until next Halloween! Halloween may have come and gone but it's never too late to start preparing for next year. And the best way to start preparing? By visiting Jack Skellington, the King of Pumpkintown of course! Let us follow Jack as he discovers Christmas Town, a place where smiling children throw snowalls instead of heads.  It's peculiar isn't it? We've known we wanted to do a Nightmare sing-along for a while now, but we weren't sure what season worked best. Is it a Halloween movie? A Christmas movie? Should we put it in around Thanksgiving and split the difference? In the end, we decided we didn't really care and we don't need a reason to celebrate the greatest Halloween/Christmas hybrid movie of all time. Oh, how HORRIBLE THIS November WILL BE! All the beloved songs will be subtitled on the screen for your singing pleasure and The Action Pack will be handing out all sorts of delightfully awful goodies that'll make you belt out ‘WHAT...IS...THIS!?’”—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com
 
 
The YE-Z In Love Sing-Along
Alamo Ritz 10:15pm
 
“Jay-Z and Beyonce married and created a harmonious union of love and incredible music. And when they're not collaborating on a track they're collaborating in the sack as they await the 9-month bundle that will no doubt be a super human of musicality. Jay may be married to Beyonce but he has been bromancing all over the world and going H.A.M. with his boy Kanye. And with that we bring you Ye-Z in Love: The Beyonce/Jay-Z/Kanye West Sing-Along where we jam all our favorites music videos from each artist and as many collaborations into two hours as we possibly can. As always, we will have ALL of the lyrics up on the screen for you to sing-along to, light up rings, and so much more! Slap on some shudder shades and grab a bottle of champagne, but I don't think anything can get you ready for this jelly.”—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Even if you’ve seen Die Hard a thousand times, as you damn well should have by now, nothing compares to seeing this classic piece of cinema on the big screen at the Alamo Drafthouse.
 
 
Friday December 2nd
 
 
Fantastic Fest: The Yellow Sea
Beginning Regular Run at Alamo South Lamar
 
“At Fantastic Fest 2008 Na Hong-jin blew audiences away with his incredibly assured debut feature The Chaser. For his sophomore film The Yellow Sea, Na has reassembled his two leads from The Chaser and crafted a hyper-violent, border crossing crime epic sure to become another audience favorite. The Yellow Sea unravels organically, Na taking time to follow Gu-nam in his confusion as he loses track of shifting loyalties. The world he finds himself caught up in, though, is extremely volatile and he soon finds himself on the giving and receiving end of many sharp objects. Featuring enough chaotic knife antics, stress-inducing hatchet acrobatics, extended chases and car crashes to fill 5 movies, The Yellow Sea is a the kind of dark, violent crime epic we have come to expect from Korea and a film that firmly establishes Na Hong-jin as a major force in Korean cinema.”—Brian Kelley via Drafthouse.com
 
 
Zzang!!!: Gremlins 2: The New Batch
Alamo Ritz 7:30pm
 
“No one’s denying that the original Gremlins is a top notch holiday monster movie…but I gotta say: Gremlins 2 takes the Christmas cake and splatters it against the wall. Dante’s long-awaited sequel revives all the man-trampling insanity of the first film, multiplies it by ten thousand and sprinkles it with glowing chunks of sheer chaos. Mogwai-lovin’ gremlin-wreckers Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates and the great Dick Miller are back, now with a front row seat for the creatures’ takeover of a New York City high-rise. The diminutive terror tornadoes have upgraded to go with their fancy new digs, among them a giant tarantula beast, a bookish intellectual, an electricity creature and many, many, MANY more. Terror legend Christopher Lee is on hand to drop some mad science on the wee maniacs, but nothing can slow their absolute ascent into the annals of anarchistic madcappery! Join us for an extremely rare 35mm screening of the fastest, wildest, and hilarious-est assault on mankind since the invention of the banana peel: Gremlins 2! ZZANG!!!”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
We Will Rock You: Queen Sing-Along
Alamo Ritz 10:30pm
 
“Freddie Mercury is the greatest rock singer of all time. PERIOD. He came, he saw, he conquered, and he left the world a completely changed and better place. A master of constant reinvention, Mercury made opera cool, mustaches a necessity, and full-length microphone stands excessive. And that is why we pay our tribute to the man with the pipes of gold. It's time to bust out your best catsuit, slap on your complimentary mustache, and prepare to take your voice on a four-octave journey of non-stop rock. We will have live performances, music videos, and maybe even a couple of movie montages as you wail out some of the best songs of all time. So if you're a champion come on out and stomp your feet to "We Will Rock You" because by the end of this night you will be screaming "Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time....I'm having a ball!"—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com
 
 
The Late Show: Rare Exports
Alamo Ritz (thru 12/3) 11:30pm
 
“Better watch out. This holiday season, we’re bringing back the film the Village Voice called “the best anti-Christmas Christmas movie since Bad Santa”. This is the Fantastic Fest 2010 favorite about a mysterious archaeological dig that uncovers a rather sinister jolly fat man clad in red. Soon, lines are drawn as a group of reindeer hunters capture Santa and lash him in irons like Hannibal Lecter and the archaeologists prove to be more than they seem. No doubt about it, RARE EXPORTS is the best movie about Santa-hunting ever made.”—Drafthouse.com
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Rare Exports is one of the most innovative and wholly entertaining Christmas films I’ve seen in ages. Based on equal parts mythology, action hero archetypes, and cultural tradition, Rare Exports is a film that deserves to be seen and the Alamo is the perfect place to do so.
 
 
Saturday December 3rd
 
 
Master Pancake: X-Mas Show
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm; 10:00pm
 
“The beloved Alamo holiday tradition returns for 2011: it's the Master Pancake X-mas Show!  We’ll be channel surfing through a flurry of clips from your favorite holiday movie and TV specials (Rudolph, The Grinch, Frosty) and some weird programs you never dreamed existed (The Christmas Shoes, Pee-Wee’s Christmas Special and more)!  Pancake regulars John Erler (the bald one) and Joe Parsons (the teacher) welcome microscopic holiday fetishist Owen Egerton who will crack jokes and make up new Holiday songs on the spot. Past audiences have been treated to amazing improvised carols such as “Deer Hooker” and “Daddy Brought his Mistress home for Christmas”.  We'll also have an audience sing-along, seasonal snacks, and maybe even a little Pudding and Butter!  Help us SLEIGH THE HOLIDAYS in Master Pancake style!”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
 
“Thrill to all the cheap laughs, cheap women, and cheap production values of one of the world’s premier bad movies. Watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show in-and-of-itself is an event, but it takes on a whole new life when witnessed within the walls of The Alamo Village with loads of audience participation, dressed-up patrons, and general wickedness that has become a vital component to the film’s meteoritic rise to cult film legend. “—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Sunday December 4th
 
 
Master Pancake: X-Mas Show
Alamo Ritz 5:00pm; 8:00pm

Monday December 5th
 
 
Big Screen Classics: White Christmas
Alamo South Lamar (thru 12/7) 7:00pm
 
“To be honest, it couldn't go wrong. The darling of musical cinema Irving Berlin plus Bing Crosby, the housewife's favourite big-eyed boy? A match made in heaven. The big surprise is - it's even better than it promised to be. This eagerly awaited musical is essentially a buddy film. Well sort of, it's certainly got two buddies in it, but it's also a love story, a Christmas fable, and a vehicle to hang some exceptionally catchy hits on. Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Paris (Danny Kaye) meet during the Second World War and become firm friends. After getting demobilized they team up to become hot property as a song and dance duo ripping up the nightspots with their own brand of feel-good hits. After five years of rolling success they need a holiday and cruise off to a New England skiing resort in the company of two comely sisters, Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Vera (Vera-Ellen). They arrive to find the place nearly bankrupt, as there has been no snow for over a year. The local top man is their old army boss General Waverly (Dean Jagger), and sure enough our two heroes wade in to help their old comrade and organise a benefit concert. But can they save the resort?”—Matt Ford, BBC via Drafthouse.com
 
 
Elf Quote-Along
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“The Ultimate Holiday experiences begins HERE. When Elf was first released it recaptured that goosebump-inducing Christmas spirit that had been soooo lacking in EVERY OTHER holiday movie release and gave you new reason to believe in Santa Claus. This Quote-Along is so much fun, from the spaghetti and syrup eating contest at the open of it to the mandatory group tickle fight at the end, and it just doesn't feel like Christmas at the Alamo unless we get to share this movie with you. So we decided to spread that Christmas cheer the best way we know how - by singing and quoting loud for all to hear. And don't worry, if you can quote alone, then you can quote around other people. There's really no difference! Grab the kids, order something sugary and The Action Pack will be providing jingle bells for everyone, bubbles for a few key scenes, and a special present for whoever can eat their spaghetti the fastest!”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Food & Film: Edible Austin Benefeast: Moonstruck
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“Every year Edible Austin brings tons of events highlighting local, fresh food in Central Texas during Eat Drink Local Week. These events help raise awareness and funds for two amazing local nonprofits, Urban Roots and the Sustainable Food Center. The Alamo team is thrilled that we have been able to become a part of this tradition with the Edible Austin Benefeast prepared with lots of care and local ingredients by Alamo Executive Chef John Bullington. For this year’s Benefeast we're screening Moonstruck, the romantic Italian-American classic starring Cher as a Brooklyn widow just weeks away from her second marriage. But when a cute young Nicholas Cage shows up -- who also happens to be her fiancée’s estranged brother - it’s a recipe for trouble. Each course of this irresistible menu includes a perfectly matched wine pairing.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
The Big Lebowski Quote-Along
Alamo South Lamar 10:00pm
 
If you love the Cohen Brothers’ tribute to shiftless losers with mad bowling skills and penchants for Creedence Clearwater Revival, this is the place to be. All your favorite one-liners from The Dude will flash across the screen to prompt your collective vocal worship of this masterful comedy.
 
 
Tuesday December 6th
 
 
Girlie Night: Love Actually
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“Forget about A Christmas Story or Charlie Brown. Heck, forget about Baby Jesus! Love Actually is basically the whole reason I celebrate Christmas. For, without this masterpiece of a romantic comedy, there would be no love in this cold, cruel world. Plus, we'd all be stuck singing ‘Jingle Bells’ instead of everyone's favorite carol, ‘Christmas Is All Around.’ I challenge you to find one other movie that combines Colin Firth, an adorable little boy with a dead mom, the British Prime Minister, the porn industry, Mr. Bean, a washed up rock star and a kid in an octopus costume into something that makes me cry tears of shimmering, golden joy into my mug of spiced wine. This film TROUNCES all other holiday films in the ‘squee’ category. I mean, ask me how many times I've rewound and watched the scene when Mark shows up at Juliet's door and shows her a sign that says, ‘To me, you are perfect.’ Because OMG I WANT THAT!!!! Join us for this very special holiday edition of Girlie Night, where you're allowed (and expected) to squeal, sigh and grab your neighbor's arm when Colin Firth finally proposes to that Portugese lady.”—Sarah Pitre via Drafthouse.com
 
 
Food & Film: Home Alone Cheese Pizza Party
Alamo Village 7:00pm
 
“Now it would be enough to just get out of the house and enjoy this Christmas classic on the big screen at an Alamo near you, but we're honoring Kevin McAllister, the hero modern of Christmas, with ‘a lovely cheese pizza, just for me.’ So grab a ticket and sign yourself up for a Cheese Pizza Party where you won't have to do any sharing and the only limit is yourself. Just be sure and take care of your waitstaff afterwards with a keep the change, ya filthy animal.”—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com
 
 
AFS Essential Cinema: Phfft!
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“Eight years of marriage end in divorce, but even in New York City, the former couple keep running into each other. In only his second starring role, Jack Lemmon plays an income tax lawyer who’s grown bored with his marriage to Judy Holliday’s TV show-runner. When they split, they explore other avenues – she learns French; he grows a mustache, under the tutelage of his Lothario roommate (Jack Carson) – before the former man and wife bump into each other again on the dance floor in the film’s comic high point. Mambo!”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
TV at the Alamo: Glee
Alamo Village 9:45pm
 
“We’ll be showing every new episode of the season where you can get giddy with your fellow Gleeks weekly.  So start practicing your Schuester dance moves, warm up your vocal chords to out-sing Rachel, and get fabulous like Kurt, ‘cause we’re bringing the Glee.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Terror Tuesday: Nightmare City (A.K.A City of the Walking Dead)
Alamo Ritz 10:05pm
 
“Sure, the makeup looks like peanut butter, the blood looks like nail polish and an undead creature gets beaten to death with a blanket...but nothing can stand in the way of the most ill-conceived Italio-trash vampire-zomboid wreck-bomb in the goddamn galaxy! A radioactive airplane lands and immediately spews forth a seemingly endless fountain of drippy man-scabs and scumbos, each on a feral cannibalistic rampage. To call them “zombies” is to overlook the fact that these shit-caked spazznuts can operate machinery, fire automatic weapons, and run faster than a fat kid behind an ice cream truck. Director Lenzi may have made his name with jungle cannibal epics like Make Them Die Slowly, but his go-for-broke dedication to flesh-ripping offensiveness hit a crescendo in this underappreciated holocaust of anti-human bloodrage.”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Home Alone may not be the first film people think of when they are listing holiday classics, but it’s one that I revisit every single year. If you’re like me, the Alamo has crafted the pitch perfect celebration of Kevin and all his fantastic hijinx.

Sommelier Cinema: Midnight In Paris
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“At each Sommelier Cinema we welcome a guest wine connoisseur to choose a wine flight to complement a film. For this installment we bring back Woody Allen’s modern classic. Midnight In Paris brings to life the most romantic city in the world in a way that only a master like Woody Allen can. He is aided by an amazing cast led by Owen Wilson and the contrasting beauties Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard. In la Ville-lumière, Gil (Wilson) is on a charming European vacation with his wife when he suddenly falls under a spell.  At night, when the streets begin to empty, he encounters an intellectual's fever dream; an entire ghost world of history and art and life emerges from the ether for his curiousity to investigate.  On the cobblestone streets of Paris he is transported into the 1920s, and while there he meets the idols of his imagination; Ernest Hemingway, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Salvador Dalí, Picaso, Matisse, Buñuel are living the bohemian lifestyle that Gil has always adored.  He becomes torn between his days with his family and late nights with the luminaries of world culture.”—Drafthouse.com

Elf Quote-Along
Alamo Village 7:00pm
 
 
Food & Film: A Christmas Story Mini Feast
Alamo Lake Creek 7:00pm
 
“Think about the double dog dare, the Chinese caroling, the Red Ryder bb gun, those creepy elves and of course that “fra-jee-lay” Italian imported leg lamp. There is more timeless iconography packed into this perfect little gem than any other Christmas film since the birth of Jesus. For this special presentation your ticket to the theater grants you a multi-course meal themed to A Christmas Story. We encourage each and every one of you to snort along and enjoy your plate just like the piggy does as you chow down on Shrimp, Carrot and Mushroom Eggrolls followed by Roast Duck Breast with mashed potatoes and ginger-sesame sugar snaps, and then rounded all off with Fudge with Vanilla Ice Cream with a Fortune Cookie.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Dionysium
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“The Dionysium offers a unique, innovative program of debate, lecture, declamation, theatrical presentation and music in a salon-like atmosphere on the first Wednesday of every month at the Alamo South Lamar. Audiences enjoy offerings not to be found elsewhere in Austin, including the recitation of famous speeches, participatory discussion in a formal, moderated context, and the opportunity to participate in the recreation of Ancient rituals.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Weird Wednesday: Mitchell
Alamo Ritz 9:45pm
 
“This movie, which feels like a pilot for a Kojak or Colombo-style cop show, stars the excellent actor Joe Don Baker, who seems to realize that he’s caught up in a very bad movie but strives heroically nonetheless to provide some entertainment value in the cliche-infested “unorthodox detective” story. Baker, who is heavier and more southern than any other leading man I can think of, resembles the fat Elvis. That’s not an insult. I like Joe Don and Elvis a lot. And Baker has a certain Elvis-like charisma that he plays to the hilt here, even though his character is written as a variant on the eternal “fat bastard” archetype. In his quest to nail racist scumbag murderer John Saxon, he (literally) steps on the toes of the wrong people and ends up in the shit with both the police and the mob. Baker is pretty much the whole show here as he chugs can after can of Schlitz and tries to keep a straight face. There are competent supporting players like Saxon and Martin Balsam but they all look like they’re in a hurry to get to the bank before it closes and cash their checks. Linda Evans is surprisingly likable as Mitchell’s pothead prostitute squeeze.”—Lars Nilsen

            Fantastic Fest: Elite Squad: The Enemy Within
            Beginning a Regular Run 12/2
 
Elite Squad: The Enemy Within is a powerhouse of violence, and the life-changing consequences that happen from the choices we make. There are no second chances. You don’t have to be versed in the original film (also great by the way). Elite Squad: The Enemy Within jumps right in with enough context and back story for the audience to jump in and hit the ground running. And run you will, Elite Squad 2 ranks up there as one of the all-time great crime thrillers, perfectly balanced with strong characters, genuine human emotion, gritty violent action and a zippy full-tilt pace. Imagine Goodfellas with less narration and an afro-Brazilian backbeat.”—Chase Whale via Drafthouse.com

“You've asked for it. Nay, you've begged for it. Far be it from us to stand in the way of what our audiences want. We're proud to present, for one night only, the return of the Kill Bill double feature. We'll be screening Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece of Asian-infused cinema. That's right, you're getting both films in 35mm back-to-back. From Uma Thurman's The Bride's first initial attempts at revenge to her final, blood-soaked confrontation with Bill, played by the late, great David Carradine, you'll see the whole story laid out in one sitting. We're packing in the fun with even more surprises — including games, giveaways and the announcement of our next Houston-specific Alamo Signature Event Series. You won't want to miss this vengeance-cooked night of justice because if you do... The Bride will rip out your eyeball.”—Drafthouse.com

            Bad Santa
            12/7 7:30pm
 
David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo may have been labeled "The Feel Bad Movie Of Christmas" by Hollywood, but every Grinch knows knows Terry Zwigoff's deranged Bad Santa has already claimed that title years ago. In his greatest role ever, Billy Bob Thornton stars as a con man who enjoys the finer things in life - pounding women in dark alleys and boozing it up with every breath life gives him. He poses as Santa Claus and has big plans with a little man to rob a mall on Christmas Eve. His only setback is the loser chubby kid whom he's rapidly warming up to. This is the last feature from one of comedy’s’ greats - the late John Ritter.”—Chase Whale via Drafthouse.com
 
 
 
 
            Labyrinth Sing-Along
            12/1 7:30pm
 
“Come on people – do I really need to say anything more than that to convince you that this LABYRINTH SING & QUOTE-ALONG is not to be missed, no matter what the goblins tell you they’re going to do to your little brother? David Bowie, Jim Henson, and Jennifer Connely created an unsurpassed work of young adult cinema in the 1980s, and somehow it’s never been properly celebrated until now. We’ll have subtitles on the screen for all of our favorite lines and every single song, so the whole crowd can yell them all out in unison. We’ll also have an assortment of goodies in your prop bag, including bubbles to transport us to the magical land of Sarah’s dreamy ball, balloons to pop around the theater while we sing the fireys’ song, and best of all – Whoopee Cushions to fart along with the Bog of Eternal Stench. Smells bad!! Suffice to say, if you miss this show, you most definitely have no power over me. YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER ME!”—Henri Mazza via Drafthouse.com

            Big Screen Classics: It’s A Wonderful Life
            12/4 5:30pm
 
“Stewart as Bailey goes from compassionate to overwhelmed to drained in a fury he never repeated.  When the assistance of an Angel shows him what life would have been like if he had never been born, Bailey sees that sometimes sacrifice has its own rewards.  It is no wonder that this, a very strange movie about money, about morality, about sacrifice, is so damned superlative about so many things. It is the most Christmassy, the most inspirational, and certainly the most heartwarming, of all Hollywood output during the Golden Age.  Frank Capra’s Yuletide yarn is touching, and will bring you to tears for a good portion of its two-plus hour running time.  With its perfect winter setting, good cheer, and strong family and community message, this film is the quintessential representation of the Christmas Spirit in the cinema, and it is meant to be enjoyed over and over again.”—Drafthouse.com

“Blood! Guts! Mayhem! Set in a Roman Gladiator-style, dog-eats-dog future where greatest sporting event is a deadly car race across the country with psychotic drivers behind the wheel. Their goal? To run down equally psychotic fans and grannies with shopping carts crossing the street, and to kill each other before reaching the finish line. Our hero here is the reigning champion known as Frankenstein (played by the late, great David Carradine) who decides to put an end to the madness all the while trying to stay alive. Classic Roger Corman-produced B-movie insanity, Death Race 2000 also stars a young Sylvester Stallone in his most unintentionally hilarious role ever. EXPLOISION is our new monthly beginner's-level series of explosive exploitation and horror classics curated by Zack Carlson and Lars Nilsen, programmers and hosts of the legendary weekly Alamo series Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday, respectively, and lovers of depraved, disreputable, and disemboweled cinema.”—Drafthouse.com

            12/4 4:30pm; 7:15pm
 
“We've had TONS of requests for this 2006 stoner classic ever since we first started doing Quote-Alongs over at the Colorado Street Alamo location. Most of those requests came from people with really red eyes who smelled like they'd just come from a Phish concert, so we were sure this would be the perfect Quote-Along for this year's High for the Holidays fun. If you missed its three day long theatrical release, here's the film's story: a coming of age story about a guy too old to be coming of age. Alex (Allen Covert). age 35, lives with his grandmother (Doris Roberts) and her two roommates (Shirley Jones and Shirley Knight). He's a stoner who makes money by testing video games. If this awkward hilarious synopsis doesn't sell you, you must be un-high.”—Drafthouse.com
