Calling Steve Penn!

The friendly Alamo folks just exclusively emailed me and every other blog in town some promo material for their upcoming Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow events. Which, did I mention, are FREE? Anyhow, ’cause I like the place and they sent me free goodies, including tickets to several flics and a BUNCHA free drink chits I’m inclined to do them a favor with the 3 or 4 people who occasionally browse this site.

Below is my original artwork and total rewrite of Alamo’s copy…enjoy! 1 2

Free Outdoor Movies in September and October Bring Big Fun!

Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet is hard at work planning some big events for Kansas City. Four free Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshows have been scheduled for the months of September and October. Alamo Drafthouse is famous for its Rolling Roadshows, where a giant inflatable screen is set up in an interesting location and the public is invited for a free outdoor movie screening. Additionally, these would not be Alamo events without themed entertainment to make the experience even more memorable. Each screening will feature the signature Alamo style with pre-show audience activities and contests themed to the film. At each screening, gates will open an hour before the film’s scheduled start time and movies will begin at sundown. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy FREE movies under the stars with the Alamo Drafthouse.
