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!" For more info, to book your tickets, and to find theater info - visit Drafthouse.com. They're showing: Jurassic Park, The Color Purple, Schindler's List, Amistad, Poltergeist, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Indiana Jones, Saving Private Ryan, An American Tail, Hook as well as Catch Me If You Can.
This is why I love the Alamo Drafthouse - for great events like this. I may try to catch a few of these myself.

MINORITY REPORT? MUNICH? Oh well. You can't have everything. I would very much love to attend one of these screenings. Spielberg is a living legend. I will see anything he directs and almost anything he produces. A true talent among talent.

I agree. I think Minority Report was an instant classic in the Sci-Fi genre.

Agree on those. And War of the Worlds was terrific and should have been added. True Legend.

I'd have loved to see them devote time/screenings to some of his really early, lesser known works - "The Sugarland Express" and "Duel," in particular.

DUEL! Horrendous concept. Awesome execution.

An american tail ??? Really - Don Bluth directed that, Spielberg was just a producer. Are they going to show Super 8 then, or Men in Black, he produced on those films as well..
