The Alamo Drafthouse Guide (4/26-5/2): The Drafthouse Invites You To 'Jurassic Park'

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 April 26th

Caddyshack Quote-Along

Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

Caddyshack shows us everything that an 80s movie can be, complete with the old windbag who doesn't like kids and the misfits who just want to have fun, the random shots of boobs when you least expect them, and, of course, quotable line after quotable line. So it's got that going for it, which is nice. And we'll make it even nicer by subtitling all of our favorite lines, bringing in special props (you'd totally eat a Baby Ruth from a pool right?), and start the whole shebang off with a bit of a putting competition.”—Drafthouse.com

Big Screen Classics: Cool Hand Luke

Alamo Slaughter Lane 7:00pm

“Most Hollywood movies about anti-authority figures often lack authenticity because, well, they're from Hollywood, but Cool Hand Luke is the real thing because Newman was the real thing, a guy who gladly and purposefully did things his own way, even at the risk of his career. It became one of his defining features and one of the things that endeared him to audiences, especially when Luke was released in 1967, and it holds up today as a testament to not only a great actor and humanitarian, but also as a terrific piece of entertainment. It's the one we'll always remember him by. HARD BOILED EGG EATING CONTEST BEFORE THE MOVIE!”—Matt Kiernan via Drafthouse.com

Box Wine Cinema: Sleeping with the Enemy

Alamo Lake Creek 7:00pm

“There’s very few times you can feel superior to Julia Roberts. But drinking box wine while watching Sleeping with the Enemy is certainly one of those times. After all, did you marry a total psycho (with an admittedly awesome mustache) who is so obsessed with you, you had to fake your own death? No, you did not. But Julia did! And now she’s in a mess of trouble! And the only person who can help her is a guy with really huge ‘80s hair. Honestly, it’s tough to say which appears more in this movie: hair or hairy situations. While you sit back and relax in your Alamo seat, sipping on delicious cheap wine, Julia will be struggling to build a new life for herself in the shadow of her dark, tragic past. Within the thriller genre, Sleeping with the Enemy is a slightly shallow imitation of the real thing, but, just like boxed wine, it still packs a hell of a punch."—Sarah Pitre via Drafthouse.com

In Da Club Sing-Along

Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

 “Why drop all dem bones for a private table and an overpriced bottle of booze while you watch everyone else have all the fun dancing when you can roll up to the Alamo Drafthouse where everyone has a reserved seat? And it don't cost no $300 to make you feel fly like a G6. Grab your ticket as we turn the Ritz into the ultimate club where you're free to sit back and relax as you sip on a tasty beverage or get yo' ass on the stage and show off your dance skills. Because we're only playing the stuff that makes our feet move and our bodies groove. It's all thriller, no filler at this all-singing, all-dancing rump-shaking good time. Expect to hear all your favorite club hits of today and yesteryear from R. Kelly to Ke$ha. So 409 those white sneaks and put on your nighttime sunglasses because were gonna whip our hair as the DJ has us falling in love again.”—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com

80s Movie Anthems Sing-Along

Alamo Lake Creek 10:00pm

"The '80s were a great decade for music; more specifically, the marriage of music and movies never seemed more right. '80s movies changed our lives one montage at a time. Whether it was Kevin Bacon cutting loose to some Kenny Loggins or Rocky pumping up to beat Drago with ‘Hearts on Fire’ blaring, this music invoked so much emotion out of their downright ridiculous lyrics and synth-pop beats that we couldn't help but feel invigorated. And invigorated we were. We were so jazzed up that we're assembling all of our favorite movie songs and clips to play back-to-back-to-back in what can only be deemed an inspirational overload. Seriously, this music makes you feel like you can climb a mountain and knock out Bigfoot with one triumphant fisticuff to the air. We'll be holding out for a hero as we lament about our 9-to-5, and then we can all take to the aisles as we dance magic dance. So, throw on your favorite '80s gear, grab a tambourine, and prepare to sweat because that's the power....that's the power of love!"—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com

Friday April 27th

Studio Ghibli Retrospective: Princess Mononoke

Alamo Ritz (thru 4/30) Check Daily Times

“This exotically beautiful action film features gods and demons locked in a struggle for the future of the unspoiled forest and an elaborate moral universe that Mr. Miyazaki has created. As such, it is a sweeping, ambitious version of the comic-book storytelling that engendered it. Frequent battle scenes, graphic enough to make a sharp distinction between Princess Mononoke and animation made for children, keep the story in motion. These are often breathtakingly rendered, but it is the film's stirring use of nature, myth and history that make it so special.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times via Drafthouse.com

Master Pancake: Jurassic Park

Alamo Ritz (4/28) 7:00pm; 10:00pm

“Hold on to your butts as Master Pancake reprises one of their most enduring riffs: Jurassic Park (1993).  The early 90’s was a simpler time, when cerebral character actors like Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum could play action heroes, bad motherfathers like Samuel Jackson could play nerdy computer geeks, and dinosaur special effects were created using cool stop-motion models and animatronics instead of CGI.  We at Master Pancake love that era, but we also think it’s a little ridiculous.  That’s why we’ve dug up Jurassic Park and genetically reconstructed it with a healthy dose of Master Pancake commentary mixed in.  Come see the results.  Chaos is sure to ensue.”—Master Pancake’s John Erler via Drafthouse.com

Fantastic Fest: Juan of the Dead

Alamo Village (thru 5/3) Check Daily Times

“Written and directed by Alejandro Brugués, Juan of the Dead mixes the sensibilities and wit of a Looney Tunes cartoon with enough zombie carnage to keep even the most bloodthirsty of horror hounds satisfied. Alexis Diaz de Villegas stars as Juan, the perpetually nonplussed conman who uses a zombie outbreak in Cuba to forge a new business as a professional zombie killer. Featuring outstanding humor, lovable characters and a great sense for mixing horror with humor, Brugués’ film, the first horror film from Cuba, is one of the best zombie movies to venture out in search of brains in the last few years.”—Robert Saucedo via Drafthouse.com

FF Presents: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

Alamo Ritz 11:30pm

“Desperate to pay for his beloved sister's kidney operation, Ryu kidnaps his wealthy boss' daughter. Nothing goes according to plan, however, and what ought to have been easy money soon turns into blood money. That's just the start of this supremely gritty hardboiled thriller set in Asia's underground world of illegal organ transplants. After the kidnapping goes awry, Ryu and his girlfriend struggle to avoid Ryu's old boss, who's determined to take an eye for an eye. Director Chan-Wook Park says he wanted to create a hard-boiled Asian thriller that eschewed the overblown visual excess of recent Korean efforts in favor of a darker, more realistic delivery. As a result, everything here is saturated in the believable (and the bloody). Brutally nihilistic, this is without out a doubt one of the best films to come out of Korea.”—Drafthouse.com

Alamo Survivor’s Tip: I’ve attended Master Pancake’s Jurassic Park mock twice in the past and can honestly say it’s one of their best. If you miss out on this hilarious revisit to cinema’s most ill-advised theme park, you’ll roar with disappointment.

Saturday April 28th

Free Kid’s Club: Jason & The Argonauts

Alamo South Lamar Noon

"Most fantastic movies use special effects to create illusions of giant creatures and impossible battles. But very, very few of these films are courageous enough to use ACTUAL MAGIC. Well, it just so happens that effects ultra-mega-wizard Ray Harryhausen put every drop of his patented silver screen sorcery into Jason and the Argonauts, a rampaging, rollicking, rough-and-tumble mythological adventure that puts every other kid-friendly epic to shame. Young warrior Jason travels halfway across the world in search of The Golden Fleece, flanked by Hercules and other courageous masters of adventure. Along the way, they’ll engage in hair-raising battles with wicked harpies, an army of skeletons, the multi-headed Hydra and a tremendous war giant made entirely of impenetrable metal! If every movie was this outrageously exciting, I’d marry a video store! But there’s only one Jason and the Argonauts, and we’ve got it in glorious, Technicolor 35mm! So if you like fun, excitement and/or monsters, we’ll be saving you a space in the Hall of Great Heroes this Saturday!”—Drafthouse.com

TV at the Alamo: Doctor Who: The Daemons

Alamo Slaughter Lane 1:00pm

“In the peaceful village of Devil’s End something very strange is happening. A professor is preparing to open a nearby burial mound, and a local white witch foresees death and disaster. Meanwhile, the new vicar looks suspiciously like the Master, and he is using black magic to conjure up an ancient Dæmon. Can the third Doctor (Jon Pertwee), Jo (Katy Manning) and UNIT stop their old enemy before he succeeds?”—Drafthouse.com

Afternoon Tea: Becoming Jane

Alamo South Lamar 3:30pm

“I’ve always dreamed of living in a Jane Austen novel. The dresses! The flowery etiquette! The handsome gentlemen in riding breeches! But for Jane Austen, who actually lived during that time, the reality wasn’t so heavenly. In Becoming Jane, a film loosely based on her life, we watch as Jane, played by the always stunning Anne Hathaway, turns down suitor after suitor, determined to pursue a career as a writer in spite of society’s disapproval. When she meets Thomas Lefroy (Scott McAvoy), her plans threaten to go awry, as is prone to happen when an extremely handsome man is involved. With a stellar cast including James Cromwell and the indomitable Maggie Smith, this film reveals Jane Austen’s struggles while, let’s be honest, doing nothing to sway my desire to live in that time period. So join me for Afternoon Tea, where we can sip on tea (provided by Austin’s Zhi Tea), nibble on British baked goods and escape to a world of romance, gentility and dashing men in top hats.”—Sarah Pitre via Drafthouse.com

Mondo Presents The Adventure Time Feast

Alamo South Lamar 7:00pm

"Mondo is pleased to announce a Marathon Screening and Feast for the Emmy®-nominated animated Cartoon Network series Adventure Time with series creator Pendleton Ward and Tom Kenny live and in person! Alamo Executive Chef, John Bullington has created a menu inspired by the series, and attendees will enjoy food inspired by the show while Finn and Jake take on the Ice King over the course of 10 Adventure Time episodes. It’s sure to be an algebraic evening. As an added bonus, an event exclusive Mondo poster by Dave Perillo will be included with the price of the ticket! You can only get this poster at the show!”—Drafthouse.com

FF Presents: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

Alamo Ritz 11:35pm

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: Any time a Kid’s Club film features effects by the legendary Ray Harryhausen, it instantly becomes doubly unmissable. Jason and the Argonauts contains some of the maestro’s finest work and if you have budding cinephiles in your brood, this event is an absolute must.

Sunday April 29th

The Ultimate Willy Wonka Party

Alamo South Lamar 4:00pm; 7:00pm; 9:45pm

"Come with me, and you'll be in a wooorld of pure imagination... and you'll also be in a theater with two of the original kids from the best version of Willy Wonka EVER! Join us in Houston, San Antonio and Austin this April as we welcome back Paris Themmen (Mike TeeVee) and Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt) to the Alamo Drafthouse. We'll have a full Q&A after each screening, and everyone in attendance will receive an autographed poster with their ticket!"—Drafthouse.com

Video Hate Squad: The Divine Enforcer

Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

“Cheap and ludicrous is the name of the game at Video Hate Squad, where we present movies that have only ever been released on VHS tape. The Devine Enforcer is about a priest who decides he's seen enough and goes full into full kickboxing vigilante mode. He's supported in his efforts by his fellow men-of-the-cloth Jan Michael Vincent and Erik Estrada, who sit around a drab kitchen table and complain about how bad everything is getting. Fortunately for the movie's entertainment value, the bad guys are played by reliable sleaze-person Don Stroud and the terrifying Jim Brown, who really gives this movie his all! Action, horror, revenge and terrible music abound. This is a cinematic easter basket piled high with righteous insanity.”—Lars Nilsen via Drafthouse.com

TV at the Alamo: AMC’s Mad Men

Alamo Ritz 10:15pm; Alamo Slaughter Lane 10:00pm; Lake Creek 9:00pm

"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

Alamo Survivor’s Tip: Video Hate Squad is an Alamo signature event that doesn’t occur but once every couple of months, and this week’s film is especially worthy of your eye-ttention. An obscure action gem starring Jan Michael Vincent, Jim Brown, and Erik Estrada? You’d have to video hate yourself to miss this!

Monday April 30th

FF Presents: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

Music Monday: Color Me Obsessed

Alamo Ritz 10:00pm

“Eschewing a ‘VH1 Where are They Now?’ approach, director Gorman Bechard tells the story of the influential '80s indie-rock band, The Replacements, instead through the eyes of the band's friends, fans, and contemporaries.  Dubbed ‘the last best band’ by Spin Magazine, The Replacements' live shows could be miraculous or downright disasters, and while they amassed critical accolades and a cult of devoted fans, the band never quite achieved the commercial success that seemed at times within their grasp.  Combining over 140 interviews with rockers (like Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Craig Finn of The Hold Steady), journalists, and fans both famous and not, Bechard delivers the obsessive tale of the most influential band you may have never heard of -- or, to the already devoted, one of the greatest rock bands of all time.”—Drafthouse.com

The Big Lebowski Quote-Along

Alamo South Lamar 10:45pm

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 May 1st

FF Presents: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

Alamo Ritz 3:50pm

Hecklevision: Mortal Kombat

Alamo Ritz 7:00pm

“You know the game, you remember the platinum selling soundtrack and now prepare for ultimate battle of textual kombat as we present to you Mortal Kombat in HECKLEVISION. Join Rayden, Liu Kang and the rest of the gang as they battle for Earthrealm against the dreaded Shang Tsung and his deadly ninja assassins. Directed by the ever-talented Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator) and starring an all-star cast led by the pre-straight to video Christopher Lambert, Mortal Kombat gave us one of the first in a long line of terrible video game adaptations. And so we ask you to arm yourself with your wits and charge up your phones as we live stream all your texted heckles on the screen alongside the masterpiece that is Mortal Kombat."—Drafthouse.com

Terror Tuesday: Don’t Go In The House

Alamo Ritz 9:50pm

"The dawn of the 1980s saw mankind taking huge strides forward in technology, discovery and misogyny. Like Slumber Party Massacre, this film is built on a seething disdain for nubile femininity, filled with powerless, tormented female characters...and written by a woman! But that isn’t to say that the other 3.5 billion of us get away easy. Donny (Dan Grimaldi) is an emotionally stunted nutzoid shut-in who witnesses the fatal burning of a co-worker AND his mother’s death in a single afternoon. Where most people would be bogged down in revulsion and self-pity, our plucky hero enjoys his newfound No-Rules domestic freedom by jumping on the sofa and building a stainless steel fireproof bunker. Once it's completed, Donny heads off to the local disco to bring home some giggling, flammable houseguests. What follows is nauseating, reprehensible and excessively entertaining.”—Zack Carlson via Drafthouse.com

Wednesday May 2nd

Studio Ghibli Retrospective: Princess Mononoke

Alamo Ritz (thru 5/3) 4:25pm

AFS Best of Fest: Natural Selection

Alamo Village 7:00pm

“Linda White, a barren Christian housewife, leads a sheltered existence in suburban Texas. Her world is turned upside-down when she discovers that her dying husband, Abe, has a 23-year old illegitimate son named Raymond living in Florida. Somewhere on the edge of guilt and loneliness, Linda grants Abe's final wish and sets off on a quixotic journey to find Raymond and bring him back before her husband passes away. Along the way, Linda's wonderfully bizarre relationship with Raymond will teach her more about herself than she ever imagined possible and force her to come to terms with her troubled past.”—Drafthouse.com

Super Troopers Quote-Along

Alamo Lake Creek 7:00pm

AIGA Presents: PressPausePlay

Alamo Ritz 7:00pm
 

“The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world's most influential creators of the digital era.”—Drafthouse.com

Weird Wednesday: Emanuelle in Bangkok

Alamo Ritz 9:45pm

“The last time we showed a Black Emanuelle movie the audience got so jacked-up on pure excitement that we had to use tranquilizer darts and a stun gun to clear the theater afterwards. Two hundred plus patrons stood up in their seats and howled for more. Well here you are, you animals! You wanted more Laura Gemser movies you got it. Let's just hope your endocrine systems can take it this time. Emanuelle in Bangkok is one of the many egregious ripoffs of Just Jaeckin's insanely profitable Emmanuelle films (note the slightly different spelling). Most of these semi-legal Black Emanuelle films teamed lithe, dusky Indonesian sex-bomb Laura Gemser with director Joe D'Amato, an exploitation legend if there ever was one. D'Amato, tragically born without the part of the brain that regulates good and bad taste, is to sleaze what Yoda is to the force. When these two pool their considerable resources no taboo is safe. Expect orgies, castration, perversions of every stripe, all played out in the sin city of the universe, Bangkok. We know this may not be everyone's cup of poison but we'll take a double. And leave the bottle.”—Lars Nilsen via Drafthouse.com

            Girlie Night: Say Anything

            4/26 7:30pm

"In the land of ‘80s crushes, amidst the Kirk Camerons and the Jake Ryans, one man stands alone. And that man (not a guy, a man!) is Lloyd Dobler. Sure, he might not have the preppy looks of Andrew McCarthy or the real genius of Val Kilmer, but Lloyd Dobler is special. He wears a trench coat! He drives a blue Chevy Malibu! He kickboxes, which everyone knows is the sport of the future! He's great with kids! He watches Cocoon with old people, for goodness sake! And, as if all of those amazing qualities weren’t enough, here's the kicker (literally!): he will always, without fail, protect you from broken glass on the street. In other words, Lloyd Dobler is perfect, and for April’s Girlie Night, we'll give him the celebration he deserves. Join me for a night of love, heartache and, of course, songs about Joe. Keys will be collected, and if you've got a boom box lying around, well... you know what to do."—Sarah Pitre via Drafthouse.com

            4/26 7:30pm

"It's the same Murtaugh you know and love partnered with loose canon Martin Riggs, but this time they are paired up with a witness to protect, Mr. Leo Getz (Joe Pesci). The zingers and one-liners fly as fast as the bullets in this tale of international drug smuggling and DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY. There's action, interracial friendships, romance, toilet explosions and female nipples! If that's not reason enough to revisit this beauty in a theater, maybe this will tip your scales. We're loading up what can only be deemed an ‘unsafe’ amount of black powder into our pyrotechnic kits and preparing to blow things up LIVE in the theater along with the explosions on screen. ‘We're back, we're bad, you're black, I'm mad.’”—Greg MacLennan via Drafthouse.com

            Only at the Alamo: The Moth Diaries

            4/26 7:30pm

“From Mary Harron, the director of American Psycho, comes The Moth Diaries, a haunting adaptation of Rachel Klein's novel of the same name. Sarah Bolger and Sarah Gadon star in this take on the classic vampire legend. Rebecca (Bolger) is instantly suspicious of Ernessa, the new addition at her all-female boarding school. Her classmates and teachers suspect that Rebecca's feelings are born from jealousy but in her heart Rebecca knows that there is something strange and supernatural about Ernaessa (Lily Cole). Scott Speedman co-stars.”—Drafthouse.com

            Zzang!!!: The Naked Gun

            4/26 7:30pm

"FACT: Leslie Nielsen was the all-time #1 supreme force of pure comedic hammin’. Unfortunately, he and the rest of the world didn’t realize it until 1980’s Airplane, when he was already 54 years old. From that point forward, the late, great, white-topped funnyman made up for lost time in a big way, slinging goofball gags at every opportunity. Here, he reprises his square-jawed everyman hero Lt. Frank Drebin from the hilarious but doomed Police Squad TV series. In a race against crime, he’ll alienate, embarrass and/or destroy every person, place and thing within 50 miles of downtown Los Angeles. You’ll also enjoy the wacky antics of a talented young actor named O.J. Simpson. The also-late, also-great Ricardo Montalban appears as the billionaire crime lord plotting to kill the queen of England. Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy and baseball icon Reggie Jackson round out the cast. But more importantly, Weird Al Yankovic is in it! ZZANG!!!"—Drafthouse.com
