The Alamo Drafthouse is presenting their “Dismembering the Alamo” secret horror film screenings during October. Each weekend in October brings a different surprise horror film. Get all the details on how you can join in on all the spooky festivities leading up to Halloween!
From The Press Release
Dismembering the Alamo
with a month of Secret Screenings
Each weekend in October brings a different surprise horror film – secret screenings that won’t be revealed until just before showtime. Will you be able to guess them correctly? Possibly! But the Dismember spirit is about the shock and delight, and that’s what we’re here to bring you each weekend in October.
Plus, since there are not many proper grownup Halloween parties happening this year, consider these your prime opportunities to come dressed to the nines in your finest costumes and/or most elaborate (and functional) maskwear.
Excited? We hope so. We can’t wait to bring you our full lineup of surprises, wild curated pre-shows, and FUN we have in store. Worth noting – you can book these titles as Your Own Private Alamo screenings starting at just $150 for you and your ever-lovin’ coven. Plus, Alamo On Demand is getting in on the Dismembering fun by adding one of the four secret screenings films to the lineup later this month.
Finally, these secret screenings range in content, but safe to say they’re generally not for younger guests. Thankfully we’ve got two great sets of programming that they’ll love – Trick or Treat Cinema for the youngest ones and Ghouls Night Out for older kids.
