Game of Thrones Bar

Bar-goers mill about a 3,000-square-foot sprawl of weirwood trees, Westerosi sigil banners, and a looming sculpture of a dragon’s head. Some take pictures by the impressive replica Iron Throne while a few others excitedly point at a wall imitating the Hall of Faces, their own likeness used to create the eerie white plaster masks. Every few minutes, the bar is shocked out of its giddy reverie by the staff members — some clad in armor or Dothraki garb — ringing a bell and shouting “Shame!”

Westeros has come to Washington.

A Game of Thrones pop-up bar opened Wednesday in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C., taking over three interconnected bars — Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency, and Eat the Rich — and turning them into five settings from the rich world of George R.R. Martin’s A Song and Ice and Fire epic fantasy series.

The Big Sick Alamo Drafthouse

Starting this weekend, the acclaimed Sundance hit The Big Sick is opening in theaters in New York and Los Angeles. That might be frustrating for people who live in the rest of the country, but sadly, that’s how the indie release pattern works, even when the studio who picked up the movie is Amazon and they can send you pretty much any movie you want in two days. But that’s not important right now.

What’s important is that people in those two major cities go see The Big Sick, because that helps determine how big of a wide  release the movie gets when it expands into more theaters in the coming weeks. One place you should seek out The Big Sick, if you’re lucky enough to have one near you, is at the Alamo Drafthouse. The theater chain has unveiled a special Pakistani menu inspired by the relationship between comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his real life wife Emily V. Gordon, marking the first time they’ve ever worked with the movie’s creators to plan a themed menu.

Check out The Big Sick Alamo Drafthouse menu and a signature PSA to go along with it. Read More »

Star Wars Nothing But Star Wars Trailer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this year so far, you probably already know that this year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Throughout the year there will be a myriad of events and memorabilia commemorating the milestone anniversary, and one famous Los Angeles has one of the most unique offerings that fans will be able to enjoy this year.

Cinefamily hosts plenty of cool events and screenings each year, and rather than just settling for a screening of Star Wars, they decided to put together a video called Star Wars Nothing But Star Wars, a 77-minute assembly of some of the strangest footage with ties to the classic sci-fi saga. There are vintage commercials, fan films, sketches, outtakes and even pornography. You would think the latter would be the most disturbing portion, but it’s actually a quick clip of C-3PO rapping.
