Austin, you are not ready for this!!! The Alamo Drafthouse is proud to bring you a series combining three of life’s most important aspects: Film, Brunch and Drag Queens!!! Each month, local drag queens will screen films that are not only cult classics, but specifically resonate with the gay community because they are artistic, hilarious and fierce!
Screening in 35mm.
Mike Nichols jubilant adaptation of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES pairs Robin Williams and Nathan Lane as a gay cabaret owner and a drag queen trying to pass for straight in order to be introduced to their son's fiancee's right wing parents (Gene Hackman and Dianne Wiest). A huge box office success when released over twenty years ago, THE BIRDCAGE hasn't been… tempered by time and its message (and humor) is as important now as ever.
In addition, our amazing culinary team creates a themed food and drink option each month. And before the show, our talented local drag queens will host contests, interview audience members, and, of course, lip-sync the house down with themed performances! Fans of fun and fantastic films should make plans to attend this series every month! Oh, and these are "rowdy" screenings, too, meaning we cheer for our favorite characters, dance during pop performances, and quote some of our favorite lines.
So this is Hell. And there's a crucifix in it.
