SCREENWRITER STEVEN DE SOUZA IN PERSON FOR Q&A, MODERATED BY MATT GOURLEY ("I WAS THERE TOO" PODCAST!) DOORS 7:30PM, SHOW 8PM. Join us for a big-screen 30th Anniversary celebration of Ah-nold’s dystopian action-comedy classic, one now more relevant than ever. The film prophetically imagines “LA, 2017” -- a future where the media manipulates with fake news, a reality show host gives orders to the military, and the populace is too engrossed in their screens to care. Schwarzenegger stars as a working stiff framed for a massacre he didn’t commit. In exchange for freedom, he’s the next contestant on America’s most popular (and deadly) game show locking inmates into mortal combat against comic-book villain meatheads: the hockey-playing professor! The electrocuting opera tenor! The power tool dad! What follows is a nonstop barrage of fisticuffs, machine guns, flamethrowers and some of THE BEST one-liners ever put to celluloid.

Alamo Drafthouse
Tim and Karrie League founded Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in 1997 as a single-screen mom and pop repertory theater in Austin. 19 years later, the now 23-location chain has been named "the best theater in America" by Entertainment Weekly and "the best theater in the world" by Wired.com

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has built a reputation as a movie lover's oasis not only by combining food and drink service with the movie-going experience, but also introducing unique programming and high profile, star-studded special events. Alamo Drafthouse Founder & CEO, Tim League, created Fantastic Fest, a world renowned film festival dubbed "The Greek Telluride" by Variety. Fantastic Fest showcases eight days of genre cinema from independents, international filmmakers and major Hollywood studios. Mondo, Alamo's collectible art gallery, offers breathtaking original products featuring designs from world-famous artists based on licenses for popular TV/Movie properties including Star Wars, Star Trek and the Universal Monsters. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is expanding its brand in new and exciting ways, including Drafthouse Films which has garnered three Academy Award nominations in its short five-year existence, and Birth.Movies.Death. an entertainment news blog curated by veteran journalist Devin Faraci!
