Alamo Drafthouse Guide (9/8-9/14): The Drafthouse Invites You to Abandon Your Shame, Grab Your Coconuts and See a Movie That is Definitely Not 'Sucky'

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 September 8th
 
 
Robin Hood: Men in Tights Quote-Along
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
Mel Brooks takes a jab at Errol Flynn’s, and practically everyone else’s, depiction of the classic Sherwood Forrest outlaw. This comedy has everything one could possibly want: clever jokes, slapstick, a wonderful cast, and a non-bloated, still-talented Cary Elwes. Your favorite one-liners will appear on the screen for you to yell out over a pint of mead….or at least one of the Drafthouse’s many available beers.
 
 
The No Shame Sing-Along
 
“We see you there, sitting in your car, wailing away to Richard Marx. It's okay; don't feel judged. When we saw you mouthing the words to Counting Crows in the grocery story we wanted to find ourselves a gray guitar and play too. And then we thought, "Man! Sing-alongs are fun, but we need more than an outlet for fun- we need an outlet to channel our inner sadness too." We're talking the sadness that keeps you up until 3 a.m. laying in your tub staring at the ceiling and listening to the Goo Goo Dolls on repeat. And with that we put together the No Shame Soft Rock Sing-Along with you in mind. It's a masterful collection of songs that you hate to know, secretly love to hear, and can't wait till you get back in your car so you can wail out loud. Also it's an excuse to put an otherwise criminal amount of Hall & Oats and Phil Collins in a show. So let those tears streak down your cheeks as you enter The Action Pack's judgement free zone.”—Greg MacLennan via OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Way Gay Sing-Along
Alamo Ritz 9:45pm
 
"’For the first time in history, it's gonna start raining men!’ The Action Pack is assembling THE GAYEST SING-ALONG ever to include all of the best divas, gay icons, and camp classics guaranteed to make you wanna sing out loud and dance double proud for Pride Week. From Madonna to Britney, Wham! to Scissor Sisters, Queen to Mika (I guess that's not that far of a stretch), this sing-along proves the be the gayest yet. So dress up as whichever gender you feel you most identify with and prepare to work it, girl. We'll also have a couple of surprises up our sleeves in addition to interactive props, pre-show games, and every single lyric projected up on the screen for your singing pleasure. WE WILL SEE YOU THERE!”—Greg MacLennan via
 
 
Friday September 9th
 
 
Monty Python and the Holy Grail Quote-Along
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
Bring your sword, your coconuts, and your knowledge of swallows around the world because it’s time for one of the most medieval-y hilarious and utterly quotable movies of all time. Monty Python’s wild send-up of the King Arthur legend is fraught with insulting Frenchmen, killer rabbits, stubborn black knights, and huge tracks of land. The film’s innumerable fantastic lines will appear on screen for you and your roundtable of friends to call out. Well actually the tables at the Alamo are rectangular, but you get the idea.
 
 
The Late Show: Pineapple Express
Alamo Ritz (thru 9/10) Midnight
 
“At first we thought it couldn’t be done; a stoner action flick sounded like a big dopey oxymoron.  We imagined epic scenes of a hefty slob battling gravity for the remote and assumed the worst.  But when we looked at the cast (a perfect triumvirate of James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Danny McBride all at peaks of their careers) and the crew (David Gordon Green directing, script by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, produced by Judd Apatow) we had a glimmer of hope.  That hope was bitch-slapped when we saw this brilliant and brutal movie.  The weed-comedy elements are perfect.  And the over-the-top violence pairs with it better than Cheetos and fruit loops in chocolate milk.  This is not only a must-see flick, it also gets better with repeat viewings; trust us, you missed some things when you watched it for the first time.”—Daniel Metz via OriginalAlamo.com
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Monty Python and the Holy Grail is so perfect for this series that it’s the movie you could easily point to in order to explain the concept of a Quote-Along to someone who’d never heard of it. The people who love this film, don’t just love it because it’s quotable, but that will nevertheless ensure that the theater is full of avid fans sure to contribute to the communal enjoyment of the evening.
 
 
Saturday September 10th
 
 
Only at the Alamo: Can’t Stop the Serenity
Alamo Lake Creek Noon; 5:00pm; 10:00pm
 
“Can’t Stop the Serenity is a global series of screenings of the film Serenity, held to raise money and awareness for Equality Now, an international women's rights advocacy group. This year, we're giving support to Kids Need To Read, as well. SafePlace works to end secual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change.

We'll have a raffle of amazing prizes from local and international vendors, as well as an auction of autographed items.  
For more information, please visit: http://www.cantstoptheserenity.com/austin/index.html” --OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Hecklevision: Choose Your Own
Alamo Ritz 6:45pm
 
“Ever wish you could program for the Alamo? Ever sat through a Master Pancake show and thought, ‘I could do this?’ Well, now it's time to put your money where your mouth is because The Action Pack is giving YOU the opportunity to show up with your perfect heckle-able movie and let the audience decide which one we are going to make fun of. Got a copy of that totally awesome made-for-TV movie where Ben Affleck is strung out on steroids? Bring it in! Always thought it might be funny to make fun of The Passion of the Christ? If this audience is sick and twisted enough, we just might. Charge up your phones and expect the unexpected because anything goes at this Choose Your Own Hecklevision where your texted heckles will appear uncensored in real-time alongside the feature.”—Greg MacLennan via OriginalAlamo.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. 
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: If you are a Joss Whedon fan, and there do seem to be a lot of you out there, I highly recommend attending You Can’t Stop the Serenity. Not only is a great opportunity to see the big screen adaptation of/followup to Firefly, but you’d also be contributing to a wonderful cause. What would a true Browncoat do?
 
 
Sunday September 11th
 
 
Only at the Alamo: Can’t Stop the Serenity
Alamo Lake Creek Noon
 
 
Slacker 2011
Alamo Village 7:00pm
 
“1991's Slacker is a love story to Austin, Texas and a near-documentary portrait of that era in its history.  For twenty years, Austin has been defined by the film and its band of eccentric city-dwellers, dragworms and proto-hipsters.  Two decades later, a new generation of filmmakers have emerged in the wake of this film.  It is now their turn to tell the story of Austin. 24 of Austin's brightest young filmmakers have banded together to update Slacker with their own perspectives on the city.  Slacker 2011 is a stream-of-consciousness chronicle of a day in Austin, presenting the various personalities and locations that give the city its identity.  The film showcases how the town has transformed so drastically from that moment in 1991, and also how some things never change. Slacker 2011 is a funny and thoroughly creative send-up of the original film and of twenty years of Austin filmmaking, presenting the city’s changing face while showcasing some of its most exciting talent.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Four Lions
Alamo Village 7:20
 
“Chris Morris' Four Lions is a funny, thrilling comedy that illuminates modern jihadism through the prism of farce. What This Is Spinal Tap did for heavy metal and Dr. Strangelove did for the Cold War, Four Lions does for the modern face of terrorism. In a British city, four men have a secret plan. Omar is disillusioned about the treatment of Muslims around the world and is determined to become a soldier. This is the most exciting idea Waj has ever heard -- better still it's a no-brainer because Omar does his thinking for him. Opposed to Omar -- and everyone else on earth -- is the white Islamic convert Barry. He would realize he'd joined the cell to channel his nihilism -- if he had half the self-knowledge of a duck. Faisal is the odd man out. He can make a bomb, but he can't blow himself up just now 'cuz his sick dad has "started eating newspaper." Instead, he's training crows to fly bombs through windows. This is what Omar has to deal with. They must strike a decisive blow on their own turf but can any of them strike a match without punching himself in the face? Crackling with wit and tension, Four Lions is the essential response to our failure to engage with reality and a high toast to the idea that laughter is better than killing.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Rolling Road Show: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Downtown Austin 7:30pm
 
“Join us as we prepare for back-to-school season with the greatest movie ever about… playing hooky from school?!? Yup, come pull up your folding chair or blanket, enjoy a beer or two, and revel in the '80s school skipping glory that is Ferris Bueller's Day Off right on San Jacinto Street between 5th and 6th streets. Really, we never need much of an excuse to watch Ferris and enjoy a street-fair atmosphere with food vendors and beer tents. But, we actually have a pretty good one: It's a benefit for 6ixth Street Austin, a non-profit organization that strives to make the E. Sixth Street Historic District a source of pride to the Austin community by advocating for the preservation and enhancement of the district’s unique historic character, creating a vibrant mixed-use district, which locals and visitors alike will use its diverse offerings and making E. Sixth Street an important economic and cultural asset to the community. These are the good guys and you should support them.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Echotone
Alamo South Lamar (thru 9/15) 10:00pm
 
“Internationally known as ‘The Live Music Capital of the World,’ Austin's music culture has led it to become one of the world's most sought-after destinations. As nearly two dozen high-rises pop up throughout the city amidst economic downfall, how does the working musician get along? Directed by Nathan Christ and photographed by Robert Garza, Echotone is a cultural portrait of the modern American city examined through the lyrics and lens of its creative class. Interweaving the tales of these young artists to form a mosaic illustrating the universal struggle many contemporary fringe cultures are experiencing, Echotone is a modern parable on integrity set against the back drop of a global economic, political, and cultural paradigm shift.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Fantastic Fest Presents: Julia’s Eyes
Alamo Village (thru 9/15) 10:00pm (9:30 on 9/12)
 
“Produced by mastermind Guillermo del Toro, Julia’s Eyes is a creepy thriller highlighted by a foreboding atmosphere. Belen Rueda, who starred in 2007 Fantastic Fest favorite The Orphanage, attacks the title role with gusto and intensity. Julia, a young woman with a degenerative eye disease, is smart and tough but equally terrified of her impending blindness.  The film puts us inside Julia’s head, showing us her slowly darkening view of the world in a way that feels almost claustrophobic. Her fears become our fears and the tension is almost palpable. There are plenty of twists and turns as the the plot ramps up to a horrifying climax.”—Luke Mullen via OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Team America: World Police Quote-Along
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm
 
As evidence that we shall indeed never forget, the Alamo spotlights all the best aspects of America: making fun of celebrities, absurd levels of action violence, and puppet sex. As much as you might want to, as much as Matt and Trey’s marionette masterpiece may tempt you, it is simply not safe to quote this movie at work. Therefore, come to the Alamo Drafthouse and shout encouragement to the World Police as they show the terrorists their game is through.
 
 
TV at the Alamo: Breaking Bad
Alamo South Lamar & Lake Creek 10:00pm
 
“This six-time Emmy Award winning drama from AMC is probably the best show about meth cookers since I Love Lucy.  Bryan Cranston, who has won the Best Lead Actor award three years in a row, stars as Walter White, a science teacher turned crystal meth kingpin in Albuquerque, New MexicoEvery week, we will be watching last week's episode followed by the new episode, recorded on DVR so we can fastforward through commercials. For the premiere episode, we will watch the Season 3 finale first!”—OriginalAlamo.com  
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: The Drafthouse has arranged a pair of unconventional events to commemorate the tragic events of 9/11. At first glance, these may seem like inappropriate tributes, but so much of our ability to heal and grow after such a terrible tragedy is our ability to laugh. Four Lions and Team America: World Police dare to defy the oppressiveness of terror by laughing in its face. If we could all learn to do the same, those scars would become far less visible.

Fantastic Fest Classic: Three Outlaw Samurai
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“When we think of samurai cinema many of us only know the (admittedly) brilliant films of Akira Kurosawa, but if we only examine these high-art films, we are missing out on the vitality of the genre as a whole. It’s a little like judging all westerns by Brokeback Mountain. One director who made superior mainstream, commercially viable chanbara (swordplay) films was Hideo Gosha. Recently Japanese director Takeshi Miike has sung his praises and identified him as a great influence on his own work. Three Outlaw Samurai was Gosha’s first film as a director and it has the vulgar energy of exploitation film although it is exceptionally well made. It’s a hugely action-packed story of the collision of three Samurai in a small town wracked by social division. There are phenomenal action sequences as the conflicts reach their resolution in the only way possible, with slashing steel and flowing blood. Special thanks to Criterion and Janus Films for this special 35mm film presentation.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
SxSW Presents: Pelada
Alamo Village 7:00pm
 
“Away from professional stadiums, bright lights, and manicured fields, there’s another side of soccer. Tucked away on alleys, side streets, and concrete courts, people play in improvised games. Every country has a different word for it. In the United States, we call it “pick-up soccer.” In Trinidad, it's "taking a sweat." In England, it's "having a kick-about." In Brazil, the word is “pelada,” which literally means "naked"—the game stripped down to its core. It’s the version of the game played by anyone, anywhere—and it’s a window into lives all around the world. Pelada is a documentary following Luke and Gwendolyn, two former college soccer stars who didn’t quite make it to the pros. Not ready for it to be over, they take off, chasing the game. From prisoners in Bolivia to moonshine brewers in Kenya, from freestylers in China to women who play in hijab in Iran, Pelada is the story of the people who play.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Music Monday: Wild Style
Alamo Ritz 9:45pm
 
“Hip-hop rolls on tractor treads now, unafraid to colonize those who hesitate, but in 1982 it was small, self-selecting, and as specific to New York as the World Trade Center. Watching Wild Style, it's hard to believe that hip-hop was about to steal away the role of historical yeast from punk. The plot tracks Zoro (Lee Quinones) on his anxious transition from layups to galleries accompanied by reporter Virginia (Patti Astor). Fab Five Freddy, as uptown ambassador Phade, generates the same pleasant dissonance Divine brought to John Waters movies, looking off to greener pastures and redder carpets in the middle of a low-budget art movie. Wild Style shows hip-hop when it was just some New York shit, one of many things to do on Saturday night. It had to learn to become hegemonic.”— Sasha Frere-Jones, Village Voice via OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Tuesday September 13th
 
AFS Essential Cinema: Fallen Angels
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“Parallel lives of a suave hitman, a lovesick housemaid, a sweet-hearted criminal who hasn’t spoken since age 5, and a young woman pining for a lost love -- all occasionally brushing against one another in the neon-flooded nights of Hong Kong. In Cantonese with English subtitles. ‘In the mid-1970s through the 80s, the Hong Kong film industry received a much needed shot-in-the-arm from young filmmakers returning from study abroad, brimming over with new ideas of how to tell primarily contemporary stories set in Hong Kong. They would set off the HK New Wave of films bursting with visual flair and audacious themes.’ (Chale Nafus, AFS)”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Girlie Night: Mean Girls
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“I know Congress has a lot going on right now, but I still cannot believe that they haven't yet passed a law requiring every freshman to receive a copy of Mean Girls before the first day of class. Hello, it's only the most important survival guide to high school ever created! Without Mean Girls, how would you understand the importance of befriending lovable, self-described freaks like Janice and Damian? How would you figure out that you're supposed to dress sexy, not scary, for Halloween? How would you discover that you should never, ever eat a Kalteen bar? And, most importantly, how else would you know that Regina George's hair is full of secrets? This film is jam-packed with vital tips from Her Royal Highness Tina Fey, who created characters I love to hate and continue to quote, seven years after the movie hit screens. Mean Girls is a modern day classic, and at Girlie Night, we'll give it all of the adoration it deserves. Join us as we hate on the Plastics, cheer for the Mathletes and celebrate the one thing Lindsay Lohan did right. Trust falls optional!”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
Terror Tuesday: Fright Night Part 2
Alamo Ritz 9:45pm
 
“With remakes and adaptations outnumbering original films by 4 to 1, it’s clear that Hollywood is determined to shit in every nostalgic corner of our brains. But back in the ‘80s, sequels were king, often jumping through flaming hoops to outdo the previous installment in sheer insanity (if not budget). Fright Night Part 2 is a perfect example: a barbarous self-vampirization of the 1985 original, but with a half-dozen bonus monsters and the triumphant return of the great Roddy McDowall as not-so-fearless vampire hunter Peter Vincent. This time, the bloodsuckers are partying hard on the college campus, doing everything from climbing walls to using human heads as bowling balls. See an enormous man eat a moth and then get in a dog-bark argument with a werewolf, brilliantly played by Alamo favorite Jon Gries (Terrorvision; Joysticks). Come enjoy this slab of hilarious undead hostility before they “re-imagine” it starring Jack Black or Carrot Top or whatever. Jesus christ.”—Zack Carlson via OriginalAlamo.com

Celluloid Handbag: Funny Girl
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“Pull out ya’ roller skates, tuck in ya’ pillow, put on ya’ poker face and strap on tha’ tugboat cuz CELLULOID HANDBAG is finally throwin’ down the ace up tha’ sleeve, Ladies and Gentlepigs! We’ve sat on this musical for so long we damned near expected a call from Mega-Streisand herself! … so without further ado, REBECCA HAVEMEYER and her pre-show from hell presents to you the greatest gift tha’ world has ever seen or heard … it’s Funny Girl!  Barbra Streisand, the woman with a face that care forgot, commands the role of a lifetime in this box office smash that can bring any queen to his knees!  You owe it to yourselves not to miss this phenomenon, people….people…who need….people!”—Rebecca Havemeyer via OriginalAlamo.com
 
 
AFS Best of Fests: My Sucky Teen Romance
Alamo Village 7:00pm
 
Self-taught filmmaker Emily Hagins is still in her teens and has already directed THREE indie feature films!  Her latest, My Sucky Teen Romance, debuted this year at SXSW and proved this homegrown wunderkind continues to evolve her craft with each new project. We're proud to partner with Austin Film Society to present this encore screening. On 17-year-old Kate's last weekend in town, she and her friends plan to spend it together at SpaceCON - the local sci-fi convention they attend every year. There, Kate meets Paul, a recently turned teen-vampire. But when the awkward teen romance goes wrong, Kate is bitten and turns into a vampire. Kate and her friends discover that Paul is not the only other vampire at the convention, and it is up to them to stop the bad guys and find a way to turn Kate back before it is too late.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Emily Hagins is an incredible filmmaker. Her latest film, My Sucky Teen Romance, is a wonderful comedy in its own right and a telling portent as to her potential to one day kick serious amounts of ass in Hollywood. If you want to see why this eighteen-year-old girl is already making so much noise in the film industry, do yourself a favor and come see My Sucky Teen Romance.
 
Robin Hood: Men In Tights Quote-Along
Alamo Lake Creek 7:00pm
 
 
Weird Wednesday: The Girl Who Knew Too Much
Alamo Ritz 10:45pm
 
One actor I can never get enough of is Adam West, who became a self parody even more quickly than William Shatner. And like Shatner, he always approaches a part in the broadest possible way. Outside of the Batman series, West has played few leads, which is unfortunate because he can be a very entertaining performer. Here he’s supernaturally tough and cool as a former mercenary who’s trying to walk the straight and narrow as a nightclub owner until he gets drawn back into the killing business by some unsavory mob types. There’s also an anti-communist, pro-CIA slant to the plot which feels very ‘50s, even though this was made during the sick sick sixties. With the beautiful Nancy Kwan, Robert Alda and a cast of familiar faces, as well as some raging live musical numbers. Not to be confused with Mario Bava’s earlier film of the same name.”—Lars Nilsen via OriginalAlamo.com

Master Pancake: The Breakfast Club
            9/10 6:30pm; 10:00pm
           
“As the world goes back to school, Master Pancake heads to the classroom to throw spitballs at The Breakfast Club. Starring puffy-lipped princess Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez and most of the rest of the Brat Pack as a quintet of misfits stuck in detention one fateful afternoon. As always, the Master Pancakers will artfully ridicule the 80's fashion, sentimentality, and general preposterousness of the film, but nevertheless, many will still leave convinced that if we just talk to each other we can overcome all social barriers and that a Jock can fall in love with a Cure fan. Come out this August and laugh derisively on the outside while your spirit is uplifted on the inside as Master Pancake rips up The Breakfast Club.”—OriginalAlamo.com
 
           
Big Screen Classics: Dog Day Afternoon
            9/11 6:30pm
 
“Based on a true 1972 story, Sidney Lumet's 1975 drama chronicles a unique bank robbery on a hot summer afternoon in New York City. Shortly before closing time, scheming loser Sonny (Al Pacino) and his slow-witted buddy, Sal (John Cazale), burst into a Brooklyn bank for what should be a run-of-the-mill robbery, but everything goes wrong.  This is what film is all about and a true pleasure to see on the big screen on an original 35mm print! The Society For The Performing Arts will be on hand to give away 2 pairs of tickets for their upcoming visit from Al Pacino: One Night Only at Jones Hall!”—OriginalAlamo.com  
 
           
Ultimate One Hit Wonders Sing-Along
            9/14 7:30pm
 
“Listen, we hate the Macarena as much as the next red-blooded American, and Who Let the Dogs Out has turned into more of an anthem for pain than empowerment. But just because those are some of the first songs you think of when you hear ONE HIT WONDER doesn't mean all bands with one hit are bad. I mean just look at Chumbawumba...Well, maybe that's a bad example, but despite them only having one hit, they did have full intention of getting back up again (I mean they said it themselves. They're totally coming back, right?). Prove it, you say? And prove it The Action Pack shall. All these quickly adored and easily forgettable bands will unite for a blissful stroll down memory lane at the Ultimate One Hit Wonders Sing-Along! Typically we restrain ourselves and lock down on a specific decade when it comes to tapping into our one hitters' vault, but we're feeling kinda crazy and unleashing THE GREATEST COLLECTION OF ONE HIT WONDERS EVER ASSEMBLED from the '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s. So if yo' butt is stuffed and yo' curves are kicking you can take me on! (....take on me)”—Greg MacLennan via OriginalAlamo.com

Really, what's not to love about this globetrotting adventure-fest? An absolute must-see on the BIG screen, we're proud to present Raiders in a brand new 2K digital format.”—OriginalAlamo.com
