Repertory and Special Screenings

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema was created for movie lovers, by movie lovers. Celebrating cinema is something we take seriously. Whether it’s an interactive Movie Party presentation of a timeless classic, a chef-inspired feast with a menu paired to a film, or a re-evaluation of a lost gem, we love sharing the movies we love with Alamo Drafthouse audiences of all ages.

Don’t be a cotton-headed ninnymuggins this holiday season. Come out to Alamo Drafthouse and spread the cheer at this sugar-fueled, interactive holiday spectacular, packed with games, props, and, of course, singing loud for all to hear. Bundle up for this celebration of one of the best holiday films ever made, period. Will Ferrell’s take on a North Pole elf trying to figure out Manhattan (“Watch out! The yellow ones don’t stop!”) just might be the funniest he’s ever been. Our ELF Movie Party features all sorts of fun props, a themed contest before the film, and a “real” snowball fight in the theater!

Sunday, November 14 at 12:30pm

Annie (Meg Ryan) is a features writer for The Baltimore Sun, who is supposed to be getting ready for her wedding to Walter (Bill Pullman), an editor. So why is she obsessing over Sam (Tom Hanks), a lonely widower in Seattle who inadvertently wound up on a late-night call-in show and shared his story of losing his wife and trying to start a new life? Although she laughs off notions of destiny and “signs,” Annie is a hardcore romantic at heart and she conspires with the features editor (Rosie O’Donnell) to get out to Seattle and meet Sam. Since this could be true love, however, nothing goes as smoothly as it should.

Order from our tasty brunch menu – Egg BLT, French Toast, or Breakfast Tacos – and pair with a brunch cocktail classic like Desert Spring Water or the Italian 75. Each are available to order along with our full menu at this special brunch screening.

RETURN OF GODZILLA

Following the events of RETURN OF GODZILLA, genetic scientists, the Japanese government, and terrorists collide over the ownership of Godzilla’s DNA. Following an act of industrial sabotage, Dr. Shiragami fuses both Godzilla’s and his daughter’s cells with plant information and inadvertently creates the biological terror, Biollante.A parable over a sustainable future set against chaotic uncertainty, GODZILLA VS. BIOLLANTE doubles down on the explosive effects from its predecessor to deliver another high-stakes monster mash.

SUPPORT LOCAL CINEMAS: BUBBA HO-TEP

We’ve all seen this plot a million times. Y’know, the one about two elderly American legends – Elvis Presley and JFK (who is Black, as it turns out) – teaming up to stop an evil cowboy mummy from preying on their fellow nursing home residents. Yep, BUBBA HO-TEP is that old saw. From iconoclastic horror director Don Coscarelli (PHANTASM, JOHN DIES AT THE END), BUBBA HO-TEP is a wildly hilarious horror film that resurrects two icons in the form of Bruce Campbell (as Elvis) and the late character actor Ossie Davis as President John F. Kennedy, out to have one last big adventure and defeat the mystical forces of darkness.

UNFORGIVEN

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo

Tuesday, November 16 at 7:30pm

Preceded by Clint Eastwood: A Cinematic Legacy, A Director’s Vision
The town of Big Whisky is full of normal people trying to lead quiet lives. Cowboys try to make a living. Sheriff ‘Little Bill’ Dagget (Gene Hackman) tries to build a house and keep a heavy-handed order. The town prostitutes just try to get by. Then a couple of cowboys cut up one of the gals. Dissatisfied with Bill’s justice, her fellow brothel workers put a bounty on the cowboys.
UNFORGIVEN redefined Eastwood’s career as a director, garnered near-universal critical acclaim, and netted big Oscar wins. It ranks among one the finest movies of the western genre — while also serving as a fitting eulogy to it.
