Later this season, the Alamo will be create experiences around this year’s Oscar contenders featuring post-movie live jazz sets in the House of Wax bar after screenings of LA LA LAND and a special Indian menu featuring fresh fried jalebi and curries inspired by LION.

Other special guests include director Penelope Spheeris, appearing for a rare 35mm screening of her 1983 punk rock cinema touchstone SUBURBIA, and star Melanie Lynskey in person for a screening of HEAVENLY CREATURES to launch the new signature series “Cherry Bomb.”

A new partnership with Warner Archive will bring rarities from the Warner Bros. vaults back to the screen, starting with CROSSING DELANCEY. Another with Subway Cinema will be an ongoing showcase of rare Asian cinema offerings, starting with the limited series “In the Mood for Gore,” featuring Asian horror films from the ‘80s and ‘90s, all on 35mm prints from the American Genre Film Archive.
