It’s been about six years since we first got word of the Alamo Drafthouse’s plans to expand to New York. They technically succeeded in 2013, if you count Yonkers as part of New York; most New Yorkers do not, and so this week we’re celebrating the fact that the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn is finally, at long last, in business. /Film got a tour of the facility earlier this week, just ahead of the theater’s official launch, and we’ve got all the details on the new location below.

We’re just a week away from one of the most outrageously raunchy movies arriving in theaters in the form of Sausage Party. It’s seriously a miracle that the animated comedy from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg was even made. And now you can celebrate that little miracle by coloring all the wieners and buns you can dream of in a Sausage Party coloring book that’s meant just for adults.
Alamo Drafthouse has created a cool little collectible for all you foodies out there, and you can either get it with a ticket to see Sausage Party, or you can just buy it online right now. Get all the details after the jump. Read More »
The Alamo Drafthouse theater chain is known for its unique (and frequently insane) special events and screenings, but it’s awfully hard to top one of their regular summer events: Jaws on the Water. After all, if you’re going to watch a movie about a killer shark treating people like an all-you-can-eat buffet, why not up the ante and watch it while floating in an inner tube in the middle of a large body of water?
Now, the Drafthouse is looking to apply this same concept to The Shallows, the upcoming horror film that stars Blake Lively as a stranded surfer who has to match wits with a very hungry Carcharodon carcharias if she ever wants to set foot on dry land again. Even if The Shallows is a ton of fun in a theater (and the trailers have made it look like a gnarly must-see), there is probably no better way to watch this film for the first time.

Just before the weekend, Radiohead debuted a new music video along with news that their new album would arrive on May 8th (which means it’s available now). What was cool about the video was that it was directed by none other than Boogie Nights, Magnolia, The Master and Inherent Vice director Paul Thomas Anderson, and you can watch it online right here.
However, if you’d rather have an opportunity to see the music video on 35mm in movie theaters, then there are some fantastic locations where you can do just that. So check out the video after the jump, and find out where you can see the video in theaters. Read More »
Just yesterday, AMC Entertainment head Adam Aron really made a lot of AMC Theatres customers angry by indicating that the chain of movie theaters was considering having some of their screenings become more texting friendly. The consideration came about as a way to help entice more millennials who can’t put down their phone to come to the movies. However, an overwhelmingly negative response from customers has Adam Aron pulling back on any potential plans for AMC Theatres allowing texting in theaters.

In one week, you’ll be able to experience an action movie in from the point of view of the hero as Hardcore Henry turns the big screen into your own cinematic video game. But before then, the cinephiles at the Alamo Drafthouse want to make sure you’re still being courteous by avoiding talking and texting in the movie theater. However, if you happen to forget the rules, Henry and his friend Jimmy (Sharlto Copley) aren’t going to let you get away with it. In fact, they’ll beat the hell out of you.

Not only are Alamo Drafthouse theaters known for being spectacular places to see all sorts of great films from today and years past, but they also allow you to toss back a cold one while watching them. And when Richard Linklater‘s latest film, Everybody Wants Some, debuts at SXSW next week, it will be followed in a few weeks by the movie’s own official beer fro Austin Beerworks.
If there’s one movie that deserves to have its own beer, it’s the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, which brings us a story about college life in 1980. But if you’re not of age to drink, or you just hate beer, there’s also a cool new Mondo poster for the movie that has just been unveiled in conjunction with the forthcoming Richard Linklater gallery show.
