Sit up and take notice; the ladies are in charge this November—the ladies and the all-around good guy and everyman of our generation, Tom Hanks. At Alamo (100 S. Central Expressway #14, Richardson, TX 75080) this month, we celebrate Tough Ladies and T.Hanksgiving.
"We are thankful for a lot here at Alamo Drafthouse. In November, numero uno on that list is tough ladies, with programming including some of the best films featuring the most bad ass women in film from every genre and era,” said James Wallace, programmer.

Hanks with our T.HANKSGIVING series, featuring some of the everyman's all-time greatest films!” Wallace concludes. “You won't just have turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie to fill up on this month; you'll have a cornucopia of awesome programming at Alamo Drafthouse Richardson!"
