ALAMO & TEXAS TEAM UP
James Wallace, Alamo Drafthouse DFW Creative Manager/Programmer, said:
“The BACK TO THE FUTURE series is not only one of the most fan-loved franchises in cinema, but it sits at the top of my own list of favorite films of all time. So I felt personally responsible for planning an event that captured the spirit of the beloved films and celebrated this once in a lifetime anniversary.” Wallace added “And we are thrilled to team up with our friends at the Texas Theatre. As a movie nerd, I can’t imagine many things more heavy than two theaters like ours coming together on one night to co-host a night that fans will never forget.”
Barak Epstein, CEO of Aviation Cinemas and operator of The Texas Theatre said:
"We've been looking for screening event to work together on ever since Alamo Drafthouse came to town and I can't think of a better mashup than this once in a lifetime time space alignment of 10-21-15!"
