“The entire reason Karrie and I built theaters in the first place was to bring people together in a celebration of film,” says Tim League, Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO. “Our theaters are currently closed, but that doesn’t have to mean our communities have to remain shuttered as well. We intend to hunker down, weather this storm and reemerge on the other side. Until then, we’ll continue to work to share the movies we love with this community, and find ways to support each other.”
“Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday aren’t just film series- they’re communities, and even though our theater doors are currently closed, it’s vital that we continue to foster these communities, because they are truly the heart of the Alamo Drafthouse,” says Sarah Pitre, Senior Director of Programming and Promotions.
Weird Wednesday’s first Virtual Cinema title is a 4K restoration of GODMONSTER OF INDIAN FLATS, the story of an eight-foot-tall toxic sheep monster that blows up gas stations, smashes crooked politicians, and terrorizes stoners. The screening is scheduled for Wednesday, April 8th.
Alamo-at-Home programming for Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday will continue weekly, alternating between the two series. Follow Alamo Drafthouse on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for updates on film titles.
Seven additional Virtual Cinema titles are also available now at drafthouse.com, including Academy Award nominee CORPUS CHRISTI, The Band documentary ONCE WERE BROTHERS, and Brazilian Weird Western BACURAU. To view the full list and purchase tickets, visit drafthouse.com/news/

Fans can celebrate and support Alamo Drafthouse with two new t-shirts highlighting the PSA, available for pre-order on MondoShop.com for $25, with an anticipated ship date of April 20th. 10% of sales will go directly to the Alamo Family Fund, which is currently in the process of distributing over $2 million to furloughed Alamo Drafthouse staff members.
