Good news for Austin fans of either P.T. Anderson or There Will Be Blood! This Friday with the release of the Coen Brothers’ NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz will be start screening before the film a 35mm trailer for There Will Be Blood that was cut by P.T. Anderson himself. And even better this is the only place you can see this trailer anywhere in the world! I’ll be down on Sunday to check it out for my own eyes and report back later that night!
First Big Movie to Hit the Ritz (Alamo Drafthouse Ritz Press Release)
The Alamo Drafthouse Ritz theater is proud to announce the opening of the Coen Brothers’ NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN this Friday, November, 16th, against only one other theater in town. This tremendous privilege for our fledgling flagship theater has been made possible by the good people at The Weinstein Company and we wish to express our gratitude the way we always do- by sharing this incredible film the Alamo way.
As always, it’s more than just movies at the Alamo, and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is no exception. We’ll have onscreen Coen Brothers trivia before the show, a barrage of vintage 35mm Coen Brothers trailers and there’s even a rumor of a NCFOM-inspired skull-crushing piston, courtesy of the Austin chapter of DorkBot. Check back to the website (www.originalalamo.com) for more. We’ll also be the only theater in the country featuring a new 35mm trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s THERE WILL BE BLOOD. Unlike the other trailer, this one was cut by the director himself and is only available at Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz.
Grab your tickets online (here) and head down to the Ritz this weekend. You’ll thank me. You’ll thank yourself. You’ll thank the Coen Brothers. We’ll see you at the Ritz.
