Houston! Still Seats Left For The Graveyard Shift Double Feature Of AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON And The Original FRIGHT NIGHT!
I've seen the new FRIGHT NIGHT, and while I can't give my opinion of the new film, I will say that it very much respects the old film in a lot of ways. But if you want to see the original film on the big screen here in Houston tonight, along with John Landis's classic AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, there's still tickets available for our Graveyard Shift double feature at the Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks!
There will be giveaways, trivia, some goofy costumes, and a whole lot more fun on a Staurday night than you can know what to do with. Plus, we brought in a full moon especially for the occasion! Moon pies and vampire fangs for everyone, Rotten Cotton will be giving away T-shirts and selling more at the door, I'm giving away one Three Wolf Moon t-shirt, and you get to see two great movies for $12. This will be our highest attended Graveyard Shift yet. It's going to be a blast and I hope to see you there. It starts at 8:00 PM and ends with a "You're so cool, Brewster!"

I use to live close and I moved two years ago, both of those films are in my top favorites of all time. This really sucks.

I'll have to start drinking around 3 in the afternoon though. Seems they stop serving beer in Texas at midnight. Economy is so good they can afford to turn away paying drunk customers I reckon. Interesting that when I was leaving el paso a Mexican security checkpoint guy asked me if I was smuggling Mexicans. I told him just his mom. That seemed to piss him off enough to get the dog to smell around my vehicle. Since I don't eat taco bell the dog detected no mexican presence and I was able to continue. You are now free to move about your own fucking country I believe he said. I'm Sioux indian so I told him to eat my shit and love it.

If they keep doing cool stuff like this, I might have to move to Texas. I'd kill to see American Werewolf on the big screen. Can they throw The Howling in for a trifecta?

except screening just the original Fright Night as part of Blood Thirsty Thursdays on 08/18/2011. They screened American Werewolf in London earlier this year. It's a good time. Check out the Drafthouse website and look at the San Antonio calendar for the showtimes and shit like that.

Nobody fucking cares if you are first when you have nothing to contribute to the discussion.

But its an hour away, and I know I would be taking advantage of the ability to order drinks...

I love both movies, but there´s NO WAY on earth I´m gonna sit thru both features at once. Make it a single feature night and people will eat it. It´s called common sense. You´re welcome.

is that everyone who worked on them, from the directors to the gaffers, loved making them. As the rescent panels have shown, The Fright Night crowd is awesome, friendly and appreciative - Tom Holland is an incredibly great guy, Chris Sarandon just oozes class, ect. It is such a pleasent change from people who bitch endlessly about the movies that esentially made them
Aug. 13, 2011, 4:30 p.m. CST
...and watched them back to back yesterday. Wierd. Don't make great films like these anymore. They're good films these days...but nostalgia makes these great I guess.

A Fuckin 30th Anniversary screening of Escape From New York in NY!

Ahhh. Nothing quite like traveling across the us and stopping off for a perfectly timed classic movie marathon. Save me a ticket!

Just got back from this. This was my first Drafthouse experience, and it was everything I hoped it would be. Two classic flicks, great food, amazing atmosphere, and just an all-around fun fucking time. My friend who decided to tag along with me had somehow never seen either of these before, and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. As for myself, I grew up with these movies, but seeing them on a big screen with an appreciative crowd, well, it was almost like seeing them for the first time. I am cannot properly convey how grateful I am that we've got something this cool going on down here right now, but there's just no way my broke ass was going to make it up to Austin any time soon. Keep it up, guys, and I can't wait to see wait you've got planned for October.

Ok here is the deal. The Alamo Drafthouse Theater Rules With An Iron Fist. hollywood(not capitalized for maximum disrespect)
has nothing whatsoever to compete. 10.5 percent alcohol beer makes Jack a happy camper. Add hookers sucking you off while watching and we're done. Best fucking theater on earth. The sound isn't as good as Arclight or Mann's but it has character(capital C) and the screens are strangely high up. Every seat has a bar in front of it. I'm gonna say that people in Texas are loving movies more because of a much better movie watching atmosphere than I've experienced since growing up on a beach with a beer n pizza theater playing Aliens. God bless the Alamo Drafthouse theaters. This is why pussy was invented. This is proof that there are no humans running theater franchises elsewhere. It takes a real person with passion and vision to produce a true experience. Fuck all corporate shitbag cunt fuck bullshit theaters. Corporations are people? Fuck people. Individuals created everything worth a fuck on earth. The Alamo must be someone's baby. God bless them.

Of Big Trouble in Little China and The Thing and the Choppah will forever be in your debt.

If you guys were retarded enough to enjoy the Karate kid remake then you might as well gush over every piece of shit remake ever made.
Aug. 15, 2011, 1:22 a.m. CST
Remakes have no heart and are nothing but quick cash-ins. I hate how people just embrace remakes and go all oooh... ahhh over them. Saying how the original sucked and the special effects were so lame. The original FN will have a place in my heart for all eternity. Come to think of it? There is only one FRIGHT NIGHT and I reject the idea of this brainless remake.
