I have a deep and abiding love of the Alamo Drafthouse but it’s not for the food.

It’s for the programmers who routinely knock it out of the park with underground horror, trash, subversive, cult and transgressive cinema.

Austin can hold it’s head high nationally in the world of repertory film showings and we have the Alamo to thank for that.

Kicked back at a recent screening of an ultra rare print of The Thrill Killers with star [and Austinite ] Gary Kent in attendance, a bowl of hot buttery popcorn and a Maine Root rootbeer soda pop really drove that point home.
