If you live in or near Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas or anywhere in between then you have no excuse to miss out on the upcoming Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow Event on June 27. For those unfamiliar, the Rolling Roadshow takes the screenings out of the theater and, well, on the road. If you’re in Austin, where the Alamo Drafthouse franchise began, this meant having access to some of the most insane settings for a screening.
One of the most popular Rolling Roadshow events occurred in 2002, where Jaws screened on Lake Travis and viewers watched while floating in inner tubes. If that wasn’t cool enough, scuba divers bumped into the tubes and pulled on the limbs of unsuspecting attendees during key moments during the film. Leave it to the Alamo Drafthouse to submerse the audience in a whole new level. Did I mention the screening began after dark?
This summer, they’re bringing this event back! Tickets went on sale today at noon, so snatch them up while you can here. More information can be found here, and a more comprehensive article detailing the history of the Roadshow can be found here.
Tickets will go fast, so don’t miss the opportunity for an amazing movie experience. And if this sounds too terrifying, you can sit on the safety of the beach…but where’s the fun in that?
