The Alamo Drafthouse
Real nice writeup on the Alamo Drafthouse in today's Chron. I've been extremely jealous of my friends in Austin since I first heard of this place, and I'm just thrilled to pieces to have one here. Good movies, good food, no screaming kids, and did I mention they serve beer? Best of all, if the first location way out Westheimer at Highway 6 does well, they'll look to open another one in town. Excellent!
Tiffany and I will be doing our part to help make this location a success by attending tomorrow night's Mister Sinus Theater presentation of The Terminator. I'll report on it on Sunday.

I'm just going to warn you that their halftime sketch for "Terminator", while quite possibly the funniest one they've ever done, is also the most horrifying, because it starts with a near-naked John Erler.
Just so you know. Forewarned is forearmed and all that.
Thanks Chuck for letting me know about this. It's about 5 minutes from where I grew up, a real cultural wasteland! It's about time.
I went to a 24 hour moviethon at the Drafthouse a couple of years ago; it was one of the coolest movie venues I've ever seen. Awesome place.
