Hailing from Utah, YouTube stars, THE PIANO GUYS became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. (Co-presented with AEG Live).
To say this movie is merely a “masterpiece” is doing it a disservice. To lump it in with all the other movies that are just great is unfair.
SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN transcends its medium and tap dances straight into your heart. It's a film you can watch on a cold night and feel it flush your face with warmth. It’s a song you can sing when rain is pouring down on you and you couldn't care less because you're in love.
This isn't one of those classic movies you have to see because it's “important” and your viewing experience will feel anything but scholastic. You need to see this movie because YOU NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

In this 1956 musical comedy, a woman must choose between three very different men in a course of self-discovery. With an amazing cast consisting of Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, and Frank Sinatra.
GREASE sing-a-long is coming to Alamo Draft House. This film adaptation of the 1971 musical is a pure dose of happy, a celebration of youth the way we prefer to remember it. It's got the school dance to end all school dances, the school carnival to end all school carnivals, the teen romance to end all teen romances. And then there's the incredibly catchy soundtrack, jubilantly executed by Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta and the stellar cast. It's impossible not to sing along with this movie, which is why we're screening the film with all of the lyrics subtitled. (Like anyone doesn't know them word for word, but still.) As you sing about the risks of being a beauty school dropout or, oh, those summer nights, you'll also have props themed to the show so you get the full interactive experience.
Call up your Pink Ladies and T-Birds and join us at Rydell High, where we'll cheer on Greased Lightening, swoon over Sandy and Danny and sing ourselves silly. Because when it comes to fun, we're racing for pinks. (Sarah Pitre)
Bring the whole family to an exclusive pre-screening of the true and amazing story of Travis Freeman. A regular high school football player who loses his eyesight but still wins the game. Directed by Dylan Baker, and featuring Alexa Vega, Max Adler and Mark Hapka. Please RSVP here: http://23blast.themoviescreener.com/evite/396639500.
As part of the Alamo 100, this screening will feature free collectible Robocop pins while supplies last. Part Man, part machine....ALL HERO. Robocop is one of the greatest action/social-satire/all-around badass movies to have ever been made. It's tough, it's mean, it's dirty and it's made with 100% real moving parts. Paul Verhoeven is an absolute genius and Peter Weller will annihilate you with his anguished robot cop constructed from leftover pain and rage.
Come quietly or there will be... trouble. Get your prime directives in order, grab your tickets and prepare for a cinematic experience that will BLOW YOUR MIND! Now I'd buy that for a dollar. (Greg MacLennan)

Mr. Fox is a very clever fox. But oftentimes, it is the cleverest of foxes that makes the greatest enemies. Composed by Opera San Antonio’s Artistic Director Tobias Picker, Fantastic Mr. Fox chronicles a gang of woodland creatures as they attempt to outwit three very brutish farmers. Picker was commissioned by the Roald Dahl Foundation to compose the music for this live action spectacle in 1998 (over 10 years before Wes Anderson’s film made Mr. Fox famous!). Tuesday’s performance is Opera San Antonio’s inaugural offering at the Tobin.
Making recreational use of closed-off city streets since 1976, Colombia’s cycle-centric concept Ciclovía (Spanish for “cycleway”) has inspired adaptations across the globe, with events taking place in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, New Zealand, Mexico, Peru and all over the U.S. Launched in 2011, SA’s fast-growing version Síclovía (a collaboration between the YMCA, the Mayor’s Fitness Council and others) was an instant hit and is now considered the Alamo City’s “largest free health and wellness event.” Expected to draw more than 65,000 participants, Síclovía's latest chapter sees the car-free, kid-friendly outing taking over a stretch of Broadway between Alamo Plaza and Lion's Field Park. The 3.25-mile route also includes an Eastside extension encompassing Dignowity and Lockwood Parks along with designated Reclovías to relax and refuel.
