In addition to the many geek movie premieres in the coming months, I thought I’d let you know about some of the special showings of older films Alamo Mainstreet in the Power & Light District has planned. You won’t want to miss these!
Monday, March 21st – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze Pizza Party (1991)
Cowabunga, dude! In true Ninja Turtle fashion, every ticket includes free all-you-can-eat pizza!
Tuesday, March 29th – Alyas Batman and Robin (1991)
I must admit I haven’t seen this Filipino version of the dynamic duo’s tale. Alamo bills it as an “action-comedy-musical-fun-bomb.”
Saturday, April 9th – The Dark Crystal (1982)
This 1982 classic features unforgettable Henson puppetry and a fantastic heroic tale. And by unforgettable, I mean that the Skeksis gave 11-year-old me the heebie jeebies that last to this day.
Sunday, April 10th/Tuesday the 12th – Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
Jack Burton was born ready. See why in this awesome action adventure of an all-American trucker dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle with a 2,000 year-old sorcerer.
Monday, April 11th/Wednesday the 13th – Akira (1988)
One of my husband’s favorite anime movies, and certainly a classic in the world of anime, you’ll get your fill of motorcycle chase scenes and mind-blowingly psychic powers.
Sunday, April 17th – Army of Darkness (1992)
Give me some sugar, baby! This cult classic takes up where “Evil Dead” (and “Evil Dead 2”) left off, pitting Bruce Campbell’s Ash against a medieval army of Deadites. Beautifully campy, and oh-so-quoteable. A geek delight.
One item of note – in case you’re thinking of taking any younglings to these showings (though I would NOT advise it for Akira) – the Alamo has an age policy, since they serve alcoholic drinks. Children 6 and up are allowed only with an adult. No children under the age of 6 are allowed.
Have you been to any of the Alamo’s special event showings? What geek classic flicks would you add to a list like the above? Share your thoughts with the KC Geek community below!
