Alamo Richardson Special Programming: HALLOWEEN October 2013

1931_Frankenstein_img8

 

One of the best times of year to be at Alamo Drafthouse is leading up to Halloween! So many movies have been made to thrill, excite, stir and, let’s be honest, just plain scare the bejeebers out of audiences since the days of early cinema. At Alamo (100 S. Central Expressway #14, Richardson, TX 75080) this month, you’ll get a lot of the usual-suspect scary movies as well as other classics that don’t automatically pop to mind as being classic Halloween films. http://drafthouse.com/dfw/richardson.
 
In programming October, programmer, James Wallace explored the breadth of Halloween-centric movies—not just the all-time great Horror films, which include all-time great films that take place on or around Halloween like E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, THE CROW and DONNIE DARKO, just to name a few—coincidentally three films that have given us some of the best Halloween costumes ideas year after year. As always, we encourage our audience to come in costume to complete the experience.
 
“Of course, our Halloween Horror programming all started with John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN on Halloween itself. But because we need some tricks to go along with our treats, we’re also having our friends at Master Pancake make a trip up to bring you their unique brand of movie mockery of Michael Myers the Sunday before Halloween,” said Wallace.  “If you’ve ever seen a Master Pancake show, just imagine the hilarity that the long, silent shots of Michael starring creepily could provide!”
