The Alamo Drafthouse is excited to announce Richard Linklater's BEFORE MIDNIGHT as the second Drafthouse Recommends title. Drafthouse Recommends spotlights a first-run movie with the Alamo stamp of approval, indicating that we love it and want everyone to go see it. Our goal is to highlight groundbreaking, innovative and intelligent films we believe deserve to be seen by as many people as possible.

BEFORE MIDNIGHT opens in Austin Alamo Drafthouse locations on 5/31 and will follow at other Alamo Drafthouses nationwide in the following weeks. To get ready for its release in Austin (and Austin only), the Alamo will screen its predecessors, BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET leading up to the opening of BEFORE MIDNIGHT. If you buy an advance ticket for BEFORE MIDNIGHT at the Alamo Drafthouse, you will also be eligible to receive a free ticket to any Alamo screening of BEFORE SUNRISE or BEFORE SUNSET.

BEFORE MIDNIGHT is the third installment in Richard Linklater's dramatic saga about fate and love told through the story of two lovers: Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke). This time around, we meet up with the couple in Greece. They are happily together, but the romantic idealism they harbored in their youth has all but disappeared.  Now they're left facing the everyday universal problems and issues of modern day relationships.

Linklater, Hawke and Delpy have grown with these characters over the last 18 years and that's the key to what makes their story arc beautifully real and organic. What the three writers have done is quite astounding by making a film that is a fully rewarding chapter of Jesse and Celine's story for fans of the first two films while also being a great movie on its own. BEFORE MIDNIGHT doesn't shy away from the hard realities of modern relationships. Instead, it lingers on those emotional truths most films don't want to acknowledge while simultaneously being full of humor and joy as well. The combination makes for an emotionally complex and fully satisfying work of art.

Tickets for BEFORE MIDNIGHT for Alamo Drafthouse Austin will go on sale Friday, May 17.  Follow @drafthouse on twitter for exact on-sale time.  Visit drafthouse.com for information regarding other locations.
