Alamo Guide (10/20-10/26): Rush, Erin Brockovich and Michael Myers Hit the Big-Screen

Intro: 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!

2011 Safeplace Celebration: Erin Brockovich
 
“Each year, the SafePlace Celebration focuses on a dynamic speaker who touches on empowerment, speaking up against violence of all types and encouraging their supporters to be courageous citizens. The annual two-part event, featuring a film screening here at the Alamo followed by a luncheon the next day at the Austin Convention Center, helps ensure SafePlace has the funding it needs to continue their vital services. Last year, they hosted Olympia Dukakis and screened  STEEL MAGNOLIAS. This year, SafePlace screens Steven Soderbergh's acclaimed film ERIN BROCKOVICH with the dynamic real-life Erin Brockovich in person and live Q&A moderated by Katherine Stolp of KEYE-TV.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Grease Sing-Along
 
If you love the 50s, if the idea of poodle skirts and jukeboxes really revs your engine, then why not come together like rama lama lama and ding a de dinga a dong and sing along with your favorite moments from this musical smash hit? Complimentary combs and candy cigarettes will complete the illusion that you’ve traveled back in time to the 50’s…as represented in the 70s.
 
 
SxSW: The Catechism Cataclysm
Alamo South Lamar 10:00pm
 
“Father Billy (played by Eastbound & Down’s Steve Little), a young priest, is forced to take a sabbatical by his superiors when he is discovered telling inappropriate parables to his flock. Billy tracks down his high-school idol Robbie, who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. On the water, the two men reminisce about Billy's days as the keyboardist in a Christian band and Robbie's as a guitarist for a metal band. When night approaches, they realize they have lost their way - and that's when things get weird. “—SXSW via Drafthouse.com

Master Pancake: Halloween
Alamo Lake Creek (thru 10/22) 7:00; 10:00pm
 
“Just in time for All Hallows’ Eve, the hecklers of Master Pancake (John Erler and Joe Parsons) will be carving up John Carpenter’s slasher classic Halloween (1978).  It’s the story of a shy young man who braves the odds to come home for a surprise family reunion and finds himself being stalked by a creepy 3-note piano riff. Featuring Jamie Lee Curtis as a nerdy virgin, P.J. Soles as a vapid valley girl, and Donald Pleasance as Dr. Loomis, the only person in town who really understands the danger posed by a boy roaming the streets in a jumpsuit and a faded William Shatner mask.  Joining Master Pancake for the mockery will be very special guest MARY JO PEHL, one of the writers and performers from the original Mystery Science Theater 3000 TV show!!   Aside from a one-off showing a couple years ago, we haven’t performed this gem since we premiered it back in 2007.  Don’t miss the chance to catch a classic from the Pancake vaults. “—Master Pancake’s John Erler via Drafthouse.com
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Any time Mystery Science Theater 3000’s Mary Jo Pehl joins the cast of Master Pancake, the hilarity is duly amplified. In addition, they are lampooning a classic film the likes of which they haven’t mocked in ages.

Kid’s Club: The Villain w/director Hal Needham
Alamo South Lamar 11:00am
 
“With The Villain, Hal Needham did something that filmmakers have been trying to do for years: he brought the plasticity of film time that the Warner Brothers’ cartoons perfected into live-action film. Not surprisingly, it makes The Villain a lot of fun. Many of us watched it as kids and now we’re eager to pass it on to the next generation. It’s a broad western farce starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Handsome Stranger, who must escort beautiful heiress Charming Jones (Ann-Margret) across the desert to get her family inheritance. Along the way, they are continually assailed by the Wile E. Coyote-like Cactus Jack (Kirk Douglas, doing many of his own stunts), who falls off cliffs, blows himself up and generally makes an entertaining mess of it all. This film is one-of-a-kind. Come see it with the man who made it, the legendary Hal Needham.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
TX Book Fest: Smokey and the Bandit w/Hal Needham
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“Stuntman, former paratrooper, director of some of the greatest action movies ever made, breaker of bones that most of us don’t even have; Hal Needham will join us for this very special presentation of his biggest hit, the immortal Smokey and the Bandit. Copies of his memoir, ‘Stuntman’ will be for sale at the show.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival
Alamo South Lamar (thru 10/23) 7:00pm
 
“Cinema Touching Disability showcases films about, and often starring, people with disabilities. Two of the feature films, Monica and David, and Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye have been selected to highlight the 2011 festival. Monica and David is a documentary about the marriage of two adults with Down syndrome. Monica and David are in the first generation of people with Down syndrome who ever gained an opportunity to become married. Their heartwarming story shows that they never should have been denied a chance to get married simply because each of them as Down Syndrome. Sue Thomas, F.B.Eye is about a deaf F.B.I. agent. Sue Thomas is a successful hard working agent whose disability does not lower her ability to fight crime.”—Drafthouse.com  
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Hal Needham is a master of unbridled entertainment. Smokey and the Bandit is a well-established classic and if the synopsis for The Villain doesn’t make you want to drop what you’re doing and purchase your ticket, you may want to check your pulse.
 
 
Sunday October 23rd
 
 
Fellini, Jazz, & Co
Alamo South Lamar 1:30pm
 
“FELLINI, JAZZ, & CO is the next installment in our series featuring great performances of the Berliner Philharmoniker (after July’s fantastic evening with soprano Renée Fleming).  Here we’ll see the famous orchestra do some of the most compelling music written in the 20th century. First up is Dmitri Shostakovich’s Suite No. 2 for Jazz Orchestra, the amazing and epic piece most remembered as the theme to the Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut.  This is one not to be missed.  Next up is Nino Rota’s La Strada Suite, an arrangement of the music from Fellini’s classic film.  This is followed up by two of three pieces from Ottorino Respighi’s Roman Trilogy: Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome.  Beautiful pieces, all. You’ll be able to see one of the greatest orchestras in the world performing this music in glorious HD video and audio – what a delight!”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Master Pancake: Choose Your Own Pancake
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
If you thought the Master Pancake troupe had a tough job before, mocking movies they’d seen a million times with pitch-perfect comedic timing, wait until you see them mock films they may never have even heard of! Bring your favorite DVD and the Master Pancake gents will narrow them down by audience vote. They will then adlib quips throughout the whole film and even make up a skit on the fly. Holy Whose Line!
 
 
TV at the Alamo: AMC’s The Walking Dead
Alamo South Lamar and Lake Creek 9:30pm
 
“Season One of The Walking Dead established the series as yet another top-notch program from AMC right along with Breaking Bad and that other one with Christina Hendricks. The show has already taken huge U-Turns from the plot of the graphic novels and proved that it is capable of making its own compelling and exciting character-driven storylines, so the anticipation of season 2’s upcoming 13 episodes is huge. Where will they go next?!  Come watch it with your fellow zombie fans in the fortified safety of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.”—John Gross via Drafthouse.com 
 
 
Asian Invasion: The Witch from Nepal
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm
 
While on vacation in Nepal an architect (Chow Yun Fat) falls off an elephant and is discovered to be some sort of magical shaman by the titular witch. She blesses him and grants him a pair of magical glowing testicles to be worn on a necklace. They protect him from harm or something. Of course, there’s a rival shaman, who roars like a jungle cat and occasionally transforms into an awesome electric panther. Follow me, here? OK, so Chow Yun Fat and the witch fall in love and have several love scenes – he leaves the testicles on while doing it, by the way – and there are zombies, many fights and a huge magical wizard battle at the end that climaxes with an amazing exploding head scene that you won’t believe. Got it all? See it!

Music Monday: ACL Reel Rarities Neil Young
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“For October, ACL Reel Rarities has unlocked from in the vaults the oft-sought after, rarely re-broadcast 1985 episode headlined by the one and only Neil Young. This is one of those legendary eps you've heard about for years, featuring Young and company putting in an inspired performance on the ACL stage. Featuring renditions of such classics as ‘Down By the River,’ ‘Old Man,’ and ‘California Sunset’-- not to be missed!”—Drafthouse.com  
 
 
Exploision: Zombie
Alamo Ritz 9:30pm
 
“As George Romero's '70s zombie craze dug in stateside, filmmaker Fulci was the rabid, raging Italian that brought European flesh-eating to the forefront. His semi-intelligent, unstoppable, no-rules throat-rippers made the American undead look about as threatening as a bag of oatmeal. In this, his purest triumph of gratuitous violence, mankind goes face-to-rotted-face with the corpse contingent's inevitable world domination. The survivors escape to a remote island, where a sweatshop scientist is bent on coming up with any means to exterminate the creatures that are devouring civilization. In addition to being one of the prime examples of its genre and spawning countless imitations (including a few by Fulci himself), Zombie features two of the most unforgettable moments in reanimated horror: the Ultimate Shark VS. Zombie Death Match, and the Splintered Wood VS. Eyeball Challenge. Guess who wins that one.”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com
 
 
The Big Lebowski Quote-Along
Alamo South Lamar 10:30pm
 
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.
 
Alamo Survivor’s Tip: If you haven’t seen Lucio Fulci’s Zombie, I pity the hollow shell that is your supposed life. If you are even the slightest fan of walking dead cinema, this is a must-see film. Blue Underground is gearing up for the first ever Blu-ray release of the film so now is the perfect time to become a fan.

Girlie Night: Splash
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
“Sure, everyone loves Ariel, with her big red hair and tiny purple shell bra. But in my mind, no Disney underwater vixen can compete with Daryl Hannah in Splash. From the moment I laid my seven-year-old eyes on her crimped blonde hair and cool red tail, I knew I wanted to grow up and be a mermaid. It's easy to see why an adorably young Tom Hanks falls in love with her! I mean, not only does Madison have major life-saving skills, she also learned English from watching TV, eats lobsters whole and has a totally healthy body image. Basically, she's awesome, and to this day, I'm sad I never found a college where I could major in How to Be a Mermaid. Complementing Daryl Hannah and Tom Hank's totally charming performances is the legendary John Candy, whose wardrobe alone should have been nominated for an Academy Award. (It wasn't, but the screenplay was!) I guarantee that we'll pack six fun-filled days worth of magic into this month's Girlie Night, so join us as we screech along with Madison, boo Dr. Kornbluth and squee ourselves silly under the sea. Anyone have a crimper I can borrow?”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
AFS Essential Cinema: The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“The unhappy wife of a crude mobster finds solace in the arms of a bookseller in secret places within her husband’s questionable restaurant, but Greenaway’s film is more about fable and allegory, religion and politics during Thatcher’s reign. Purposely brutal and blatant, with an excess of flesh (both human and edible animal), THE COOK etc. may enrage upon first viewing but will beckon you back for a second helping. This is Bosch’s Hell laid out like a banquet and splattered onto the big screen.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
Terror Tuesday: Night of the Demons 2
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm
 
“At Terror Tuesday, we almost exclusively worship at the altar of ‘70s and ‘80s horror. But there is the rare exception that breaks through the cloying haze of ‘90s mediocrity to party like it’s 1989. Here, Australian exploitationeer Trenchard-Smith revisits paranormal ground zero Hull House, the scene of countless teenage fatalities at the hand of occult spazznoid Angela. Six whole years have passed and the murders are a distant memory (?), so it’s apparently high time to bust out the kegs and boners for another round of supernatural slaughter. However, this gaggle of idiotic 20-something teens is joined by a monster-hunting nun with a penchant for holy water squirtguns and other methods of holy hell-raising. With the vengeful, all-powerful Angela back on the attack, Sister Gloria better hope that God exists and is on her side. Too bad he doesn’t and he isn’t.”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com
 
 
Wednesday October 26th
 
 
Rush: Time Machine
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“Live In Cleveland is an evening with Rush performing their classic hits and features the legendary Moving Pictures album live in its entirety. Released in 1981, Moving Pictures was their most successful album to date, certified 4x Platinum and features some of Rush’s most well known songs and perennial radio favorites, including ‘Tom Sawyer,’ ‘Limelight’ and the Grammy®-nominated instrumental ‘YYZ.’ Captured in April at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans arena during the renowned trio’s extensive Time Machine world tour, TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland marks the band’s first live concert filmed in the United States.”—Drafthouse.com
 
 
They Wear No Clothes: Child Bride & Sex Madness
Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 
Child Bride is an astonishing, primitive bit of darkest rural Americana. Though made in the late ‘30s, it has the deep-etched look of turn of the century pulp illustrations and the deeply melodramatic plot has echoes of such 18th century touring stage spectacles as Uncle Tom’s Cabin. It’s fascinating to see our forebears’ ideas about sex, marriage and gender. And of course it’s uproariously funny too. From notorious exploitation pioneer Dwain Esper (Reefer Madness, Maniac, Marihuana, How To Undress In Front of Your Husband) is Sex Madness (1938), an amazing example of the sex-hygiene film.  On its surface an educational film warning teenagers about the dangers of the dreaded venereal disease syphilis, the film really shines in its portrayals of the way to get that disease – namely, some steamy 1930s lesbianism and premarital sex.”—Drafthouse.com  
 
 
Shaun of the Dead Quote-Along
Alamo Lake Creek 7:00pm
 
“Now you can quote along with all of your favorite British-accented zombie fighters as The Action Pack presents the Shaun of the Dead Quote-Along. We’ll have all of our favorite lines subtitled karaoke-style so that they pop up on the screen in white seconds before the character says the line, then highlights in yellow along with the dialog so we can all yell out, “She’s so DRUNK!” when Shaun and Ed first discover the zombie in their backyard. PLUS! We’ve ordered a full crate of inflatable cricket bats from England so that every time Shaun whacks a zombie to make a break for it, you can live out that excitement in the theater. Whack the person next to you and get whacked right back. Use your brains! Your delicious, scrumptious brains…”—Henri Mazza via Drafthouse.com
 
 
AFS Doc Tour: Everyday Sunshine
Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm
 
“Too many behind-the-scenes music docs follow the rise and fall of ‘Band X’ with usual references to drugs, booze, one-night stands, and bickering, but the story of Fishbone is far more interesting and completely unique. One of the major SoCal live bands of the 80s, Fishbone intriguingly combined punk, metal, funk, ska, and jazz and got a record contract. But no music executive quite knew how to categorize a group of Black musicians who seemed able to play every style. Marketing Fishbone became a commercial nightmare. Even though the band members, especially Angelo Moore and Kendall Jones, had been best friends since being bused from South Central L.A. to public schools in ‘the Valley,’ the band eventually imploded because of the influence of a cult on Kendall and the excessive playing of the Theremin by Angelo. With animation, live performances, interviews with well-known fans, and ‘then and now’ footage of the band and its members, the filmmakers have fashioned a fascinating study of a band that should have been mega-big. There is still time. This Austin screening Everyday Sunshine coincides with the release of a new Fishbone album and a nationwide concert tour.”—Drafthouse.com  
 
 
Horror Remix: Zombies 2
Alamo Lake Creek 10:00pm
 
“The zombie film formula is very simple; an environmental catastrophe occurs in the opening sequence and for the next 90 minutes or so, the living are trying to avoid a zombie attack. It’s a rock-solid recipe that’s extremely popular, but unfortunately some zombie flicks lack an inspired punch. However, every few years someone dares to inject some life into the genre. Not necessarily groundbreaking; it just seems the filmmaker gives a shit. Those are the zombie films we love. Just because zombie films are brain dead, doesn’t mean they can’t have heart.  Here, we'll revisit two features from the late 80's (The Video Dead and FleshEater) and jam pack the rest with plenty of extra goodies that will rack up a massive body count.”—Drafthouse.com  
 
 
Weird Wednesday: Vampyres
Alamo Ritz 10:00pm
 
“When selecting a horror movie to watch, you usually have to choose between high style and lowbrow thrills. Generally, the well made, atmospheric fright film doesn’t bother much with sex and gore, preferring to achieve its effects with subtlety and taste. Vampyres is special because it gives you both. It is genuinely frightening and at the same time it gives you more sex and blood than even the lowliest drive-in trash. The plot is rudimentary to the point of silliness: in rural Britain, a pair of gorgeous young women pose as hitchhikers, lure single men to their ancient labyrinthine castle, and drain them of their vital fluids. When a young couple camps on their estate they begin to suspect something odd is afoot and they investigate. Director Jose Larraz, a Spaniard, flirts with bad taste in a way that no British director would and he makes England look strange, forbidding, and even exotic. Originally rated X, the film contains very strong scenes of sex and violence, so stay home with your mommy if you can’t handle it.”—Lars Nilsen via Drafthouse.com

A daunting task under normal circumstances becomes particularly challenging after the zombie apocalypse.”—Drafthouse.com

Robin Hood: Men in Tights Quote-Along
10/20 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.
 
 
Michael Jackson Sing-Along
10/22 10:00pm
 
“MJ may be gone, but his legend is eternal. This was our very first music video Sing-Along ever, and it’s still one of the best. Because, as we know, Michael didn’t make music videos, he made short films. Say, say, say what you want, but we’ll be getting our Thriller on, asking Annie if she’s okay, and rocking with you all night. If you’ve never been to one of The Action Pack’s Sing-Alongs before, this is the show to get started with. We’ll have a moonwalking contest before the show, select members of every audience will get flashlights to shine around the room every time Michael lights up a piece of sidewalk during ‘Billie Jean,’ and when they dance under the water from the fire hydrant during ‘The Way You Make Me Feel,’ we’ll make you feel the spray But be warned, Sing-Alongs aren’t just sitting in the theater and cozily watching your favorite artists’ videos. In the past, the audience has been known to stand up and leave their seat behind entirely, and always seem to wannabe starting something. And we never stop ‘em.”—Henri Mazza via Drafthouse.com
 
 
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
10/22 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. 
 
 
            Back to the Future
            10/23 2:00pm
 
“In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the '50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he'll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.”—Drafthouse.com

If you would like to be forever terrified of little girls, pea soup, and Catholics, do we have a classic horror film for you! The Exorcist earns every bit of its reputation and it is unsurprising that it still scares the frock out of modern audiences. What is surprising is that Warner Brothers was able to get away with making this film in the 1970s. Let’s just say we didn’t think what possessed young Regan did with that crucifix would fly with censors at the time. Come enjoy this benchmark horror classic on the big screen once again.

            10/23 7:00pm; 10:00pm
 
“Whether you're a rabid gore nut or the wimpy old Pope, you're well aware that the most monumental horror series of the 20th Century is The Evil Dead trilogy. Big-time filmmaker Sam Raimi and big-chin actor Bruce Campbell knocked out their baby teeth on these movies, heading deep into the woods to scare up massively effective shocks on a miniscule budget. And when the first Evil Dead hit theaters, horror cinema was altered forever. Now, through the efforts of Grindhouse Releasing, The Evil Dead has risen again to tear apart the big, big screen! Join not-quite-fearless warrior Ash in a fluid-soaked chainsaw-wielding battle with undead demonoids who possess, violate and kill using methods that would make Satan himself blush! It's the fright film that reinvented nightmares for an entire generation, and it's bigger, bloodier and backer than ever to tear your skull out through your eye sockets!”—Drafthouse.com

Big Screen Classics: The Shining
            10/20 7:00pm; 10:00pm
 
“Just in time for Halloween, we’re showing the greatest horror film ever made.  Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece about the Torrance family, holed up for the winter as the caretakers of the Overlook Hotel, is intense, stunning, and downright scary!  It’s full of now-classic horror film moments, from ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY to “Heeere's Johnny!,” REDRUM, and those creepy twins, but it never feels clichéd or outplayed; it’s the kind of horror movie that ages well, the terrifying imagery and sounds only becoming stronger as the years go by.  Starring Jack Nicholson from back when he was actually crazy, Shelley Duvall as the svelte wife with a baseball bat, and Scatman Crothers as Dick Hallorann, the Shining mentor for little Danny/Tony. As is our annual tradition, we’ll be serving up some red rum cocktails – this year, created by our new beverage director, Bill Norris!”—Draftouse.com

Mixing historical figures with characters loosely based on actual people, Coppola and co-writers William Kennedy and The Godfather's Mario Puzocreate a panorama of love, crime, and entertainment centered on the Club.”—Drafthouse.com
