Alamo Drafthouse

It feels like an eternity since the people over at Alamo Drafthouse announced that they would be opening a location in Los Angeles. The new location will not only be home to today’s films and cult classics but some fan-favorite events.

And now, the people behind all of that have announced that they plan to open the Los Angeles location’s doors this summer. More on the report below.

Alamo Drafthouse Coming To Los Angeles and Manhattan

Hollywood, California is the entertainment capital of the world and yet it does not have one of the premiere movie theater franchise in the world, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.

But that all is about to change with the announcement that new Alamo Drafthouse locations will be opening in Los Angeles and Manhattan. More on the story below.

Alamo Drafthouse To Run ‘Team America’ In Place Of ‘The Interview’

Team America: World Police

Now that Sony has apparently thrown in the white towel with their not-upcoming-anymore brutally honest and eye-opening documentary on North Korea, The Interview…wait, it’s not a brutally honest and eye-opening documentary about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea supreme leader Kim Jong-un? It’s actually a silly satirical comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco? Well, that’s weird. Someone should let them know.

While many theaters are running from all of this madness, the Dallas/Fort Worth Alamo Drafthouse has decided to turn up a defiant middle finger. The theater will replace The Interview with a special screening of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s satirical marionette puppet comedy Team America: World Police. Read more about the event below.

London Movie Theater Hires Volunteer Ninjas To Deter Rude Patrons

Theater Ninjas

When someone talks or uses a cellphone during a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse, they are booted from the theater. They believe that those actions disturb other moviegoers and ruin the theater experience. Most theater chains won’t implement this kind of rule and choose to play out some generic and non-threatening clip asking patrons not to use their cellphones.

But a London theater called The Prince Charles Cinema is taking this rule to the next hilarious (and potentially dangerous) level. They have volunteer ninjas dressed in all black bodysuits watching over the theaters looking out for any kinds of disturbance. When they do find one, they give disturbance to the one ruining the movie experience.

/Film has found someone who has experienced this for themselves, and it looks like The Prince Charles Cinema ninjas are effective.

The Thing Header

Avid movie poster collectors would appreciate this piece of news. Alamo Drafthouse will be hosting a release of The Thing as a part of their celebration for “Summer of 82” and to commemorate the release, Mondo will be reprinting the iconic poster that Drew Struzan did himself. Struzan was one of the actual artists who drew the poster for the John Carpenter classic, but the reprint will feature no taglines, to title, cast, or crew, just the striking image of a man with light emanating from his face.

Check out the poster below.

Michael Madsen Revives Mr. Blonde Persona To Help With An Alamo Drafthouse PSA

Alamo Drafthouse

I thoroughly enjoy the Alamo Drafthouse’s PSAs. They are ballsy and hilarious. But they do address a very important point in a digital age. Don’t talk or text during a movie. Sounds simple enough, but there are those theater patrons continue to ignore this request and should you make the unfortunate decision to text or talk during the movie at the Alamo Drafthouse, the theater chain isn’t afraid of taking swift action. Unfortunately, there are competing theater chains that run these campy requests to cease texting and talking during the movie, and for the most part, they are ignored.

But this is why the Alamo Drafthouse has a huge following. Their strict no talking or texting policy allows patrons to enjoy the movie, without being bothered by fingers clicking to text or the huge ray of light being emitted by their cell phones. So to make sure that they are getting their point across, they create hilarious PSAs.

We’ve seen a couple of these PSAs in the past and judging by the huge following that the Drafthouse has, it works. Of course there are those who choose to ignore these requests, and if you don’t know what happens, well you should probably check out the video below.
