In previous years, Alamo’s Rolling Roadshow would travel the globe to hold screenings in places significant to the movie being shown. This year, Alamo is keeping the Roadshow to Texas and today they’ve released the custom posters for The Searchers, The Texas Chainsaw Masscare, Blood Simple, Hud, Red River, Bonnie and Clyde, Tender Mercies, No Country for Old Men, Giant, and The Last Picture Show. They’re all great and we’re all going to be super jealous if we don’t get one. You know, if you already weren’t super jealous over not being able to make it to these screenings.
Speaking of stuff that will make you jealous, Alamo has provided details of what’s going to make their special screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre so special. Hit the jump to check out the posters along with details on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The 2011 Rolling Roadshow begins Friday, June 3rd with The Searchers. Click here for a full list of dates.
The Alamo Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow is one of the year’s great screening series as the vaunted theater brings classic films to a location that’s significant to the film being shown. So for instance, films shown at last year’s Roadshow like Dirty Harry and The Blues Brothers were shown San Francisco’s Washington Square Park and Chicago’s Joliet Prison, respectively. The shows also tend to have special guests and sweet merchandise. Oh, and the shows are free.
I was hoping that one of the screenings would swing by Georgia this year, but my state and 48 others are out of luck. Texas, home of the Alamo Drafthouse, will also be home to all of the 2011 Rolling Roadshow pictures. The films on this year’s roadshow are (I’m already jealous writing this) The Searchers, The Texas Chainsaw Masscare, Blood Simple, Hud, Red River, Bonnie and Clyde, Tender Mercies, No Country for Old Men, Giant, and The Last Picture Show. Hit the jump for the full press release and to find out where each film will play. The 2011 Rolling Roadshow begins June 3rd.
