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.
Posters via Apple.
And here are Alamo’s details on what you can expect from the screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre:
First – the basics: We’re screening the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE at the Junction House (aka, the home of Leatherface). The historic, incredibly creepy house has been picked up and moved to Kingsland, and you can see it inside and out! The screening itself is totally free, but you can add some extra oomph to your experience by purchasing one of two VIP packages!
VIP Package #1 ($50): The VIP ticket includes two food tickets good for barbeque provided on site by the Alamo Chefs, a Mondo Texas Chainsaw Massacre t-shirt and a reserved spot in the VIP seating area complete with a Texas Monthly Rolling Roadshow camping chair that is yours to keep after the screening.
VIP Package #2 ($100): The VIP Dinner ticket includes dinner at the Junction House before the screening, a raffle ticket for a chance to win the whole set of Texas Monthly Rolling Roadshow posters from Mondo, a Mondo Texas Chainsaw Massacre t-shirt and a reserved spot in the VIP seating area for the screening which comes complete with a Texas Monthly Rolling Roadshow camping chair that is yours to keep after the screening.
Two pretty sweet deals if you ask us. Don’t feel like spending the extra cash? Again, the screening is totally free, so come out anyway BECAUSE… (this is the fun recently-added news!)
We’ll have SPECIAL GUESTS IN ATTENDANCE! Actress Marilyn Burns (Sally Hardesty), Actor Edwin Neal (Hitchhiker) and Writer Kim Henkel will be stopping by to introduce the film, tell you all the terrifying filming stories in a Q+A and MORE!
Plus, prior to the film, select members of the audience will compete in a headcheese eating contest and participate in a “scream-off” with star Marilyn Burns!
