At Alamo Drafthouse Richardson this month, the spirit of Valentine’s Day permeates all February long with a full slate of love-themed movies.
"Love is in the air this February at Alamo Drafthouse! When programming February, the theme was obvious: Valentine's Day. But that day, synonymous with chocolate, flowers, greetings cards and stuffed animals the size of VW Beetles, isn’t all of that for everyone; therefore, we programmed the films that we are in love with. This results in films that capture every level of relationships: from falling in love to falling out of love, to being so love-struck that you can't do anything but sing, to full-frustration mode to fight your love’s 7 evil exes to win his or her affections. Basically, no matter what love means to you, we promise that there's a film that will capture your heart—the classics, the sappy, the indie, the comedy, the '80s rock ballad, and more. This February, we hope you choo-choo-choose Alamo Drafthouse as your Valentine!" said James Wallace, creative manager, Alamo DFW.
