Alamo Drafthouse unveils reopening plans with free Bill & Ted screenings!
After a long five months away, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has unveiled its plans of reopening select locations beginning Friday, August 21, with additional theaters reopening the following week, including the announcement of free Bill & Ted Face the Music screenings two days ahead of the film’s wide release!
“We are incredibly excited to welcome everyone back to Alamo Drafthouse,” Alamo Drafthouse CEO Shelli Taylor said in a statement. “Tenet, The New Mutants and Bill & Ted Face the Music are made for the big screen experience. We’ve all dearly missed going to the movies, and with our many enhanced safety protocols we feel that we can come together again confidently and securely.”
Tickets are on sale now for The New Mutants and Bill & Ted Face the Music, with the latter exclusively debuting at Alamo Drafthouse with early free screenings on August 26. Audiences have been clamoring for the chance to see movies like Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated action epic Tenet and third chapter in the Bill & Ted saga.
“Our guests love the guys from Wyld Stallyns, so that’s why we’re stoked to be the first theater company to show Bill & Ted Face the Music – one day early and for free – on Wednesday, August 26th.” Senior Vice President Steve Bunnell.
In addition to new releases, Alamo Drafthouse plans to continue its tradition of leading the industry in the most diverse selection of films at any theater in the world with two incredible repertory programs:
Alamo Drafthouse will continue to offer films for rental or purchase through Alamo On Demand. A 100% curated VOD platform, Alamo On Demand allows programmers to champion new and exciting films far beyond the auditorium. Following the exclusive theatrical launch of Bill & Ted Face the Music, the film will also be available on Alamo On Demand.
As announced previously, Alamo Drafthouse has developed an array of aggressive new procedures and protocols to protect guest and team member health and safety. Full details can be found at the COVID Safety section of the chain’s official site. Alamo Drafthouse also recently launched “Your Own Private Alamo” giving families an option to rent a personal Alamo Drafthouse theater starting at just $150, and more information can be found at the official website.
Alamo Drafthouse will reopen close to half its locations across the country over the next two weeks.
