Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn Announces Opening Weekend Line-Up

Patrick Swayze in ROAD HOUSE, Screening as Part of the "New in Town" Series



Includes Indie Smashes MOONLIGHT and THE HANDMAIDEN, as well as "New in Town" and "In the Mood for Gore" Series

The Downtown Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse will be open for business starting this Friday, October 28th,  featuring a program of new releases and classic film events. Alamo Drafthouse is recognized for its unique programming, mixing the best in new release movies with a lovingly curated selection of repertory screenings and events – their first-ever New York City location will be no exception. Iconic special guests, co-presenting collaborations, new signature screening series and just great movies all feature as part of Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn’s grand opening program. Driven by a philosophy to challenge, excite and delight in equal measure, the opening slate serves as an introductory sample of what audiences will experience at the cinema moving forward.

“To most New Yorkers, this is their first time experiencing an Alamo Drafthouse, so in many ways this represents the efforts of 19 years of programming,” said New York Creative Manager Cristina Cacioppo. “It reflects the variety that will be found on our screens every day of the week, from the weird and wonderful, to the bizarre and outré, to the fun and family friendly and everything in between. It sounds cliché, but there will be something for everyone.”
 
One of the programming centerpieces is the “New in Town” series, spotlighting movies about, appropriately enough, moving in. Films in the series will span from perennial audience favorites like MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN to under-seen rarities like THE COCA-COLA KID. Midnight movie icon Joe Bob Briggs will appear in person to introduce the series’ screening of the ‘70s exploitation classic SWITCHBLADE SISTERS.

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.” 
More new signature series include “Shouting at the Screen,” with host Wyatt Cenac and Donwill live riffing on blaxploitation movies, with a DJed afterparty in the House of Wax bar. New action movie series “Fist City,” which celebrates the most pulse-pounding genre of bombastic heroics, kicks off with HARD TARGET in November. 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.  And, of course, the celebrated and long running Alamo Drafthouse series Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday will also have a home at Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn.

adidas Originals | Winter AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK | Launch Pack
 Inspired by the unpredictable weather conditions of winter, adidas Originals introduces two new silhouettes this season designed to stand up to whatever the colder season has to offer, without sacrificing visual effect.
 First up is the AF 1.3 PK, a high-top silhouette inspired by Germany’s elite tactical police unit, the GSG 9. The shoe blends modern aesthetics with a range of technical elements to create a striking silhouette with practical considerations. The shoe’s full Primeknit upper is structured by coated overlays for waterproofing, reinforced by a weather-resistant lining for protection against the elements. This is strengthened further by an insulation sock-liner and full-length lacing system, finished with embroidered 3-stripes marks and essential branding details. This is then placed atop a rugged hiking outsole for a perfect heavy-duty look.
