Alamo Drafthouse Guide (5/24-5/30): Slay Dragons, Commit Muppet Capers and Battle Mr. T

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 May 24th

Summer of 1982: The Road Warrior
Alamo Ritz 3:45pm

“THE BEST ACTION MOVIE OF ALL TIME!! Before Mel Gibson traded in his post-apocalyptic leatherwear for the flowing cotton robes of Jesus, he was The Toughest Hero in Movie History. Mad Max burned rubber across the scorched highways of the barren Earth, on the hunt for fuel and the blood of criminal marauders. Even in the Australian desert, some shotgun-wielding punk goon needs to be murdered every 30 seconds or so. Easy work for Max, until he runs up against post-nuke hellmaster Lord Humungus and his crew of feral mohawked wasteoids. Suddenly, the lone wolf of the wasteland finds himself defending the last outpost of untarnished humanity. What follows is inarguably the single greatest chase/fight/stunt explosion ever captured on film, with more car-flipping and stuntman-smashing than any 1000 American action blockbusters could dream of. Come witness the absolute ultimate in fallen world annihilation with The Road Warrior!”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com

 

Action Pack: The Goonies Quote-Along
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

“Goonies never say die! And because this movie is so awesome, they never have to. Join us for a quoting and adventuring good time as we follow this rag tag group of friends on a journey of lost maps, treacherous traps and hidden treasures. We'll have a truffle shuffle competition before the show and hand out Baby Ruths and eye patches to everyone who comes so we can all be One-Eyed Willies. This is a cinematic experience you cannot afford to miss - every card-carrying film buff should see this movie in a theater. And if you already have? Well imagine how fun it will be to see Sloth swinging onto the pirate ship while you're yelling out, ‘HEEEEEY YOUUU GUYSSS!’ as loud as you possibly can with 200 other people who love this movie as much as you do. I know, right? We imagined that too, so we're slapping on our super tight Superman t-shirts as we present to you The Goonies Quote-Along.”—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com


90s Alternative Sing-Along
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

“Long hair, longer goatees, ripped up baggy jeans and flannel shirts tied around your waist over the flannel shirt you were wearing as a shirt... the 1990s were a ridiculous time, but they were a ridiculous time that took themselves sooooo seriously. Only in the 1990s could someone like Eddie Vedder become a bona fide rock star by singing a song about a kid named Jeremy who liked to draw pictures of mountains with himself on top. Only in the 1990s could an album featuring an underwater baby chasing a dollar bill become the anthem for an entire generation. But only in the 2010s can we throw a party to remember that time by hitting the thrift stores again, buying some flannel, and coming down to the movie theater to celebrate Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Oasis, Weezer, Nirvana, and every other band from the days when ‘alternative’ actually meant something (until those same bands made it completely meaningless). After the show, stick around to help me destroy Greg's sweater - I'm just going to pull a thread and walk away!”—Henri Mazza via Drafthouse.com

 

Mondo Presents: Dragonslayer w/Phil Tippett Live!
Alamo South Lamar 10:30pm

“PHIL TIPPETT is returning to the Alamo Drafthouse for a special screening of Dragonslayer! The father of GO MOTION will be on hand to discuss the film and to talk about his new stop motion project Mad God. We will also be debuting our new poster by JC Richard that features Vernithrax in all her glory. If you attended the Jurassic Park Mondo Mystery Movie, then I need not tell you about the legendary Q&A session that followed so it goes without saying that we are very excited to see what Phil has to say about his work on Dragonslayer.”—Drafthouse.com

Alamo Survivor’s Tip: The last time Phil Tippett came to the Alamo Drafthouse, not only were we treated to a phenomenal 35mm screening of Jurassic Park and presented with an amazing Mondo print, but also Phil’s candid, hilarious responses to the Q&A questions made for an incredibly memorable evening. I would highly recommend attending this screening if you’re a fan of the man’s work. Dragonslayer features possibly the best dragon effects in the history of cinema.


Friday May 25th

Summer of 1982: Rocky III
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm; 10:15pm

“In the first film, Rocky Balboa blew it. In the second, he conquered. But in the third, he was permanently transformed into an immortal icon of the ring and the universal human experience as a whole. Join everyone’s favorite diminutive mush-mouthed pugilist for one of his top trademarked fall-n’-rise triumphs, as he goes toe to toe with the most unstoppable force in the boxing world: Clubber Lang (played with truly intimidating rage by Mr. T)! On hand for the buffet of physical and emotional brutality are all of Rocky’s diehard pals, including Carl ‘Apollo’ Weathers, Talia ‘Adrian’ Shire, Burgess ‘Mickey’ Meredith and the great Burt Young as Paulie! If you miss this show, we’ll beat you like a frozen side of beef.”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com

 

Master Pancake: The Sound of Music
Alamo South Lamar (thru 5/26) 7:00pm; 10:00pm

“The hills are alive with the sound of laughter as Master Pancake takes on this beloved 1965 classic. Come see us mock the film that New Yorker critic Pauline Kael called ‘the sugar-coated lie people seem to want to eat.’ Featuring Julie Andrews as Maria, an aspiring nun who can't say no to fun. When Maria is enlisted by Captain von Trapp to supervise his kids, chaos ensues, until she figures out how to win their hearts AND take on the Nazi oppressors, thus becoming SUPERNANNY: AUSTRIA. Sugar coated lie? Or the best movie musical about prospective nuns fighting Nazis ever?! You decide this April as we mock the hell out of it. With special guest mocker Mary Jo Pehl of Cinematic Titanic and Mystery Science Theater 3000.”—Drafthouse.com

 

The Late Show: Fight Club
Alamo Ritz (thru 5/26) 11:15pm

“Despite the first rule being expressly not to talk about it, David Fincher's adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk novel was one of the most talked about films of the late '90s. Edward Norton co-stars as an alienated insomniac stuck in a dull white-collar job who gets off on attending disease support group meetings. That is until he meets Tyler Durden, wildcard soap salesman. Bonding over their mutual disgust for consumer culture, the pair develop an unusual hobby: beating the shit out of each other. Soon their underground club becomes a full-fledged phenomenon, with disaffected young men across the country forming their own clubs to channel primal aggression into life-affirming brutal, bare-knuckled brawls. Then Helena Bonham Carter gets mixed up in their bromance and things just get weirder. Sure, a lot has changed since its initial release… war and recession; Ikea has continued to saturate our lives; the word "bromance" exists; and Brad Pitt is, well, still handsome and wildly successful. Nevertheless, Fight Club still stands as one of the most awesomely subversive movies ever to come outta Hollywood. See it, large and in charge on the big screen. Just don't, you know, talk about it afterwards.”—Drafthouse.com

 

Saturday May 26th

Alamo Kids Camp: How To Train Your Dragon
Alamo Lake Creek (thru 5/28) 11:00am

“Meet Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, heir of the Viking chiefdom, but a boy with one very big problem: a hero he is not. How to Train Your Dragon is the riotous story of Hiccup's quest to hunt down the fiercest dragon, bring it into submission, and-hopefully-pass his initiation. Instead, he ends up with the smallest, most ornery dragon - it's even toothless! Thus begins the hijinx of the world's most lovable, unlikely hero and a most reluctant ‘beast.’ Packed with energetic drawings and plenty of action, this boisterous tale is just right for fantasy fans or anyone with a spirit of adventure. Based on the book by Cressida Cowell.”—Drafthouse.com

 

Kids Club: The Great Muppet Caper
Alamo South Lamar 11:15am

“The next time your heart gets broken, or your goldfish goes belly up, or a meteor destroys your house…remember that we’ll always have The Muppets. No other conglomeration of talking animals has ever provided the universe with as much joy, laughter and unbridled entertainment. Here, in their second classic big screen adventure, Kermit, Fozzie and the gang jet off to the UK, where they’ll meet lots of stuffy old British guys and get wrapped up in the wildest crime caper in frog and/or bear history. In the midst of all this pulse-pounding daredevilry, our green hero’s heart gets entangled in the web of a certain glamorous she-swine. As you’d expect, songs are sung, laughs are laughed, chaos reigns and that ol’ Henson magic sweeps you up into a whirlwind of movie perfection so good that I’m gonna grow two extra eyeballs so I can double-watch it!”—Drafthouse.com
 
 

Alamo Kids’ Camp: Corpse Bride
Alamo Village (thru 5/28) 11:45am

“When an arranged marriage between Victor Van Dort and Victoria Everglot reaches the rehearsals, Victor starts to worry. Spending time alone in the forest, Victor decides to practice on his own. Everything seems to go well, until he accidentally puts the ring upon the hand of a corpse. Before he knows it, Victor is in the land of dead and now has a corpse bride. Whilst everyones worries about who Victoria will marry in the land of the living, Victor desperately finds a way to get back.”—Drafthouse.com

 

Summer of 1982: Rocky III
Alamo Ritz 1:10pm; 4:00pm

 

Afternoon Tea: Much Ado About Nothing
Alamo South Lamar 4:00pm

“When Kenneth Branagh released his version of Much Ado About Nothing in 1993, he proved that, even after a few hundred years, Shakespeare's words remain vibrantly beautiful and wonderfully compelling. Of course, it helps that these words are uttered by incredibly attractive people like Denzel Washington, Emma Thompson, Robert Sean Leonard and a super young Kate Beckinsdale. Set against breathtaking scenery, this ensemble powerhouse plays out Shakespeare's comedy of love and mischief with charm, grace and fabulous costumes. It may seem impossible to improve upon this delightful gem, but trust us, movies are always better when you add fancy tea and tantalizing British treats. In May's installment of our latest series, Afternoon Tea, you'll feel incredibly cultured as the film and menu whisk you away on a whimsical and tasty adventure! Brimming with swoon, laughter and deliciousness, this cinematic event is most certainly not much ado about nothing.”—Sarah Pitre via Drafthouse.com
 


The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Alamo Village 11:55pm

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. 

Alamo Survivor’s Tip: The Alamo Kids Club is a fantastic summer tradition and a great way to share with your budding movie geeks both modern gems and the classics that delighted you as a child. It’s an opportunity that no other theater offers.

 

Sunday May 27th

Cinema Club: Kiss Me Deadly with Richard Hell
Alamo Ritz 7:15pm

“If you took the most misanthropic private detective in the world, injected him with 10,000ccs of testosterone and kicked him down the elevator shaft of a burning building, you’d still only be halfway to Mike Hammer. Pulp author Mickey Spillane’s two-fisted human wrecking ball had been around since the mid-‘40s, but it wasn’t until 1955 that the character blossomed into a crushing pillar of film noir wrath. Masterfully played with snide, pugilistic hatred by Ralph Meeker, Hammer sets out on a rampage of crime-fighting, cop-fighting, and every other type of fighting he can get his meaty mitts on. Along the way, he’ll orbit a few heavenly bodies and get embroiled in a pitch black web of intrigue involving a radioactive suitcase (which would later reappear in films like Repo Man to Pulp Fiction). It’s supreme Hollywood masculinity, stinking drunk and stained with sweat, from visionary blue collar filmmaker Robert Aldrich. Join us for the ultimate experience in mid-century sex and violence, served Hammer style. With Punk Rock Idol and Literary Legend Richard Hell in Person”—Drafthouse.com

 

Summer of 1982: Rocky III
Alamo Ritz 2:00pm: 4:30pm
 

TV at the Alamo: AMC’s Mad Men
Alamo Lake Creek 9:00pm; Alamo Ritz 9:45pm; Alamo Slaughter Lane 10:00pm

"We've been hooked on AMC's award-winning drama from the opening beats of the opening credits of the very first episode, and we've never looked back. The '60s style, the talk about marketing in a time when advertising was really just coming into its own, and of course Don Draper himself just keep everyone coming back for more and more. Of course, for us it's the fantasy world of drinking and smoking and taking naps in the morning, then going for a martini and oyster lunch, then smacking around Pete Campbell and calling it a workday that makes the world of Don Draper such an enticing one. For this season of Mad Men, we'll be showing two episodes back to back, the first will be the previous weeks episode, and the second will be the new episode. Then we'll skip all the commercials and delight in Draper's wit and debauchery."—Drafthouse.com



Cinema Club: Touch of Evil with Richard Hell
Alamo Ritz 10:15pm

“An organ-bursting noir feast of criminal decadence and lost hope, this is the feature that many say is superior even to Welles' thunderous Citizen Kane. The darkest alleyways of bordertown Mexico are lit up with brimstone and gunfire as a pair of newlyweds (Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh) become embroiled in severe seediness and increasingly blackhearted dealings. Marlene Dietrich, Dennis Weaver and Welles himself co-star in one of the most shocking, beautifully shot and haunting crime movies ever made. Miss this one and we'll tie you face down to a motel bed and shove a rusty knife between your shoulder blades. With Punk Rock Idol and Literary Legend Richard Hell in Person”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com

Film Foundation Series: King Kong w/Richard Hell
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

“Cinema was still in its infancy in the early ‘30s, so imagine the breathless amazement audiences shared while witnessing the sheer majesty of King Kong. More shocking is the fact that the film is every bit as effective a near-century later, its spectacle and tragedy undiminished by countless attempts to match it. From the dinosaur-packed jungles of faraway lands to the panic-stricken mayhem of Manhattan, The Great Ape’s shadow is permanently cast across our world, his towering iconic figure burned into the wide eyes of viewers of all ages. But as gargantuan as the big lug is, it only takes one look at wee Fay Wray to bring him to his knees, proving that even the world’s most powerful creature can be struck down by the fists of love. This very special screening will be introduced by musical/ literary legend Richard Hell, whose insights will be as thunderous as the beast itself.”—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.



Music Monday: Trainspotting
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

“Before he gave us movies about slumdogs and James Franco being stuck between a rock and an amputation, director Danny Boyle gave the world Trainspotting, arthouse sensation of 1996 -- and quite possibly right behind Pulp Fiction as one of the most influential movies of that decade in the style and soundtrack departments. Adapted from Irvine Welsh's acclaimed novel, it's a cheeky, grimy tale of young and (mostly) handsome Scottish heroin addicts who basically just don't give a toss about growing up to live boring middle class lives. And they like Lou Reed. A lot. With its blend of frenetic comedy and skin-crawling horror (plunging into filthy toilets! Wall crawling dead babies!), Trainspotting is not quite an ode to junkies nor a preachy cautionary tale of drugs and ruin but rather some other different and far more entertaining cinematic animal. That's thanks in no small part to the film's soundtrack, which, so loaded with choice cuts  -- from Iggy Pop (‘Lust for Life,’ ‘Nightclubbing’), to the aforementioned Lou Reed (‘Perfect Day’), to '90s Brit Pop (Blur, Elastica, Pulp) -- it became as much a breakout star as the film's impossibly young and skinny lead actor: Ewan McGregor.”—Drafthouse.com

Girlie Night: Pretty Woman
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

“Honestly, if you need me to convince you to come see this movie, I'm not sure what to say. Except for maybe... um... IT'S Pretty Woman. COME ON. It's the film that made me (and the rest of America) fall in love with Julia Roberts! It's the movie that actually makes Richard Gere, not to mention the profession of prostitution, seem really attractive! And, most important of all, it features the best shopping montage EVER, ending with one of my favorite cinematic eff you's of all time (‘Big mistake. HUGE’). Is there anything Pretty Woman can't do? It's the movie we turn to when we need a reminder that not all guys are jerkfaces, that even when we're down on our luck, selling ourselves on the streets, there is still hope that one day, we'll get to take a huge bubble bath and then jump on the bed in a hotel penthouse. In other words, Pretty Woman is therapy, and when you combine it with cocktails and a theater full of people singing along to Prince's ‘Kiss,’ it's potentially life changing. So hopefully I've convinced you to join me for Girlie Night, but if not, here's one more reason: Jason Alexander is in it! Ha ha, just kidding. The actual reason is IT'S Pretty Woman.”—Sarah Pitre via Drafthouse.com

Terror Tuesday: Evilspeak
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

“WEEK 2 OF OUR SATAN CELEBRATION! It's a well known fact that computers are Lucifer's Weapon of Mass Destruction in his continuing battle against the human race. But at the apex of mankind's evolution (a.k.a. 1981), ol' Beelzebub needed only a Commodore 64 and dot-matrix printer to unleash an apocalyptic storm of demonic possession and extermination. Legendary character actor Clint Howard (The Ice Cream Man; The Wraith) stars in this harrowing, vicious tale of tortured military school dweeb Stanley. When pushed to the brink of human endurance by his bullying classmates and drunken, rape-crazy elderly janitor, Stanley allies with an electronic incarnation of The Dark Lord to level the playing field. Featuring blazing decapitations, fountainous gore, man-eating Hell-hogs and enough clergical dismemberment and digital anti-Christian imagery to forever reinforce the fact that Jesus is a wimp. Hail Satan slash sideways smiley face dot wink.”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com

Alamo Survivor’s Tip: If you’ve attended Terror Tuesday with any regularity, you’ve probably become familiar with the sinister, Clint Howard “Don’t Talk” PSA that precedes every show. The clips that make that PSA so unsettlingly cool are from this week’s film: Evilspeak.

Celluloid Handbag: Myra Breckinridge
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

“This is IT Ladies and Gentlepigs! Our LAST SCREENING of Celluloid Handbag! We're gonna disappear from sight to overhaul our innards and revamp our engines, so buckle up!  It's our Anniversary Month! It's Rebecca Havemeyer's Birthday!...and it's a helluva cause for an unforgettable happenin' ! We thought long and hard (shut up) on what to serve up on the party platter for this occasion and there was only one hot mama who nearly beat down our door for the chance to change your cinematic lives...the one and only RAQUEL WELCH in Gore Vidal's revolutionary Hollywood Train/Trans Wreck...MYRA BRECKINRIDGE! DO NOT MISS THIS FILM, CHICKENS. Two years ago we screened this movie and the walls nearly went up in flames of joy and amazement. See an 80 year old Mae West in her Hollywood comeback, see Farrah Fawcett and Tom Selleck in their first movie roles ever, and see John Huston play the nastiest sex pig on earth. There is no other movie like this in tha' whole blazin world, people... be there with ya' bells ON!! You will regret missin' this one. Trust.”—Rebecca Havemeyer via Drafthouse.com
 


Weird Wednesday: The Black Six
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

“’See the 6 biggest, baddest and best waste 150 motorcycle dudes!’ During the golden age of the drive-in there was one genre that could always be counted upon to turn a profit: Biker movies. ‘Scooter Trash’ epics like The Wild Angels, Born Losers, Satan’s Sadists, and of course the major studio stepchild Easy Rider paid for any number of mansions in Malibu and the Hollywood Hills. The films were inexpensive to produce and were highly appealing to the young, mobility-mad white audiences who frequented drive-ins. Meanwhile across town, movies like Superfly, Coffy, Black Caesar and the like were packing 'em in at the inner city theaters. It took an exploitation genius like Matt Cimber (Witch Who Came From the Sea, Hundra) to bring the two audiences together in this story of an all-black Vietnam Vet biker gang who take on a rival gang of racist rednecks. The Black Six are all played by NFL stars, and while none are polished actors they are loose and likable and when it's time to throw an unwise user of the N-word through a wall, they execute the playbook flawlessly.”—Lars Nilsen via Drafthouse.com

Graveyard Shift: Pumpkinhead
5/26 10:00pm

“This May, Graveyard Shift continues a month celebrating genre film hero Lance Henriksen with a screening of Pumpkinhead. In the movie that proved once and for all that motorbikes and hillbillies don’t mix, Henriksen stars as a grieving father who takes revenge on the sexed up, beer-drenched city kids who killed his son by summoning the nastiest demon he can dig up from a local haunted pumpkin patch. Special effects guru Stan Winston made his directorial debut on this 1988 film that kept things focused on a very simple rule — monsters are scary and they enjoy killing scared teenagers. This genuine horror classic will have you leave you thinking twice before you piss off any more single dads.”—Robert Saucedo via Drafthouse.com

When Mary McFly witnesses the death of his friend Doc Brown, he travels back in time in Doc’s souped-up DeLorean and accidently sets off a chain reaction that could put his very existence at risk. The Alamo Kids Club is a monthly series sponsored by 8th Dimension Comics & Games and Ain’t It Cool News. Bring the family and have your picture taken next to one of several DeLoreans that will be on display at the screening.”—Drafthouse.com
 

 

            Badass 101: They Live
            5/27 6:30pm

“John Carpenter directs They Live, a tongue-in-cheek satire of ‘80s consumer culture that stars ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper as Nada, a homeless drifter who is sucked into a worldwide conspiracy involving aliens and subliminal messages after he discovers a pair of magical sunglasses. You’ve got wrestlers, nasty aliens, ‘80s synthesizer music, some of the best action film one-liners ever put to pen and an unbelievably long fight scene between Keith David and Roddy Piper. What more could you possibly want? How about a trained fighter giving a pre-film lecture on how to take and give a punch? Don’t worry - we''ve got that and free sunglasses too!”—Robert Saucedo via Drafthouse.com

            Only at the Alamo: Dead Man
            5/24 7:30pm

“A dark, bitter commentary on modern American life cloaked in the form of a surrealist western, Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man stars Johnny Depp as William Blake, a newly-orphaned accountant who leaves his home in Cleveland to accept a job in the frontier town of Machine. Upon his arrival, Blake is told by the factory owner Dickinson (Robert Mitchum) that the job has already been filled. Dejectedly, he enters a nearby tavern, ultimately spending the night with a former prostitute. A violent altercation with the woman's lover (Gabriel Byrne), also Dickinson's son, leaves Blake a murderer as well as mortally wounded, a bullet lodged dangerously close to his heart. He flees into the wilderness, where a Native American named Nobody (Gary Farmer) mistakes Blake for the English poet William Blake and determines that he will be Blake's guide in his protracted passage into the spirit world." –Jason Ankeny, Rovi via Drafthouse.com
 

            Horror Remix: Shopping
            5/24 10:00pm

“The shopping mall does make for a great setting in the slasher genre. A claustrophobic building scenario (later perfected by Die Hard), plus tons of resources for hiding places, escape routes and tools for creative kills. Plus, the shopping mall and horror genre make great companions. Both pander to teenagers with disposable income and are notorious for peddling cheap commodities. Each of the three films featured in Horror Remix: Shopping make some veiled attempts to be satire, invoking consumerism, security, technology and progress. However, the half-hearted rhetoric is squeezed in to make the films more than they really are. Bottom line, the “trapped-in-the-mall” scenario is ripe for slicing and dicing teens in the 80s (similar to ‘lost-in-the-woods’ in the 70s). Let’s leave the groundbreaking allegory to the rest, because slashers at the mall are the best!”—Drafthouse.com

I'm serious, and don't call me Shirley!”—Drafthouse.com
