Alamo Drafthouse Hosting 'Septemberg' Spielberg Month Screenings
"I wanted to show them something that wasn't an illusion. Something that was real." Get ready for Steven Spielberg mania all-September-long at your local Alamo Drafthouse! Drafthouse has officially announced a new screening series they're hosting called Septemberg, in honor of the upcoming release of Spielberg's newest movie Bridge of Spies (in theaters October 16th). Many of my friends grew up watching Spielberg movies, whether it was E.T. or Indiana Jones or Jaws or Hook or Close Encounters. He's a one-of-a-kind, masterful filmmaker even today, and it's always exciting to revisit his past work. The Drafthouse also put together a fun video teaser for the "Septemberg" series, along with info and locations around the country.
Teaser video below - the screening series runs all month during September at various Drafthouse cinemas.
"Steven Spielberg has to be the most populist of all the great American filmmakers. His main strength has been being a master storyteller, but his most impressive is the ability to tell so many different kinds of stories and do so effectively. That's why The Alamo Drafthouse decided to dedicate an entire month of programming to him this September with SEPTEMBERG!"
