April 15, 2009


If you live in Los Angeles, there's an event you don't want to miss this week! Austin's original Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is taking their popular classic exploitation movie series on the road. And this Thursday and Friday night, the Cinemapocalypse tour will stop by the New Beverly Cinema for two special presentations. Alamo Weird Wednesday programmer Lars Nilsen and Terror Tuesday curator Zack Carlson are bringing rare and unseen treasures from their 35mm bunker, which you won't want to miss! This week's line-up: Julie Darling, Poor Pretty Eddie, Psycho From Texas, Surf II, and Carnival Magic.

Below are the films lined up for this week in Los Angeles at the New Beverly (7165 West Beverly Blvd). You can find the complete tour schedule and more information at the official Cinemapocalypse blog.

Of course, LA isn't the only stop on the Cinemapocalypse road trip.

This really is a once-in-a-lifetime cinematic tour that you won't want to miss! If you didn't know, the Alamo Drafthouse is the greatest movie theater in the whole world, and now they're bringing a taste of their own private collection right to you.
