If you want to get your nerd on in the Alamo City, the Alamo Drafthouse theaters feature free showings of various nerdy movies on a regular basis. With exception of “Anime at the Alamo” these all take place once a month.
First, there is ‘Anime at the Alamo’ sponsored by the folks at Funimation which happens every Monday night at the Westlakes location. I haven’t been to this one in awhile because there are a load of Mystery Science Theater 3000 wannabees constantly blabbing throughout the movie and they completely ruin the experience for me.
ComicBreak.com’s ‘Fanboy Flix’ brings us various geeky movies from years gone by. This happens at the Stone Oak location and often features local guest artists.
The San Antonio Neo-Victorian Association gives us “Steampunk Night” for those of us whose pasttime happens to be the future past (ba-doom, tissh!). Expect lots of really cool costumes and vendors at these events held at the Park North location.
For the Whovians among you, Doctor Who Fans Unite gives us Doctor Who night at the Stone Oak location. Be sure you’re on time!
The Alamo Drafthouse is a great place to watch movies; and these events are a great chance to enjoy your favorite movies and shows on the big screen. If you decide to go to one of these events be sure to get there early, because there are often things going on beforehand and the theaters do fill up.
