Alamo Drafthouse Announces "PBS Kids At The Alamo" Series To Benefit Local Charities & Non-profits

Alamo Drafthouse and PBS KIDS to present all-ages, family-friendly big screen programming throughout the year.

December 10, 2015 // // Austin, TX - Alamo Drafthouse and PBS KIDS are pleased to announce the launch of a new year-long initiative that will bring PBS KIDS' award-winning programming to Alamo Drafthouse screens across the country each month.

"PBS KIDS at the Alamo" will feature full-length episodes of new and favorite PBS KIDS' series, beginning with NATURE CAT in January 2016. Other selections include READY JET GO! in February and ODD SQUAD in August. Additional titles and dates will be announced throughout the year.

"PBS KIDS is excited to present 'PBS KIDS at the Alamo,'" said Lesli Rotenberg, General Manager, Children's Media, PBS. "This project will introduce more kids and families to the fun, engaging content of PBS KIDS, while supporting the great work local PBS member stations do year-round with their partners in early childhood education."

Similar to Alamo's popular Kids Camp series, families may reserve seats with a $1 to $3 donation that can be made online in advance or at the box office. All donations will be directed to a charity or non-profit in each market, such as PBS member stations or their local partners, to support early learning activities.

Regular Alamo age and noise policies will not be in effect for these shows. Families with kids of all ages will be welcome and the environment for each show will be suitable even for the youngest ones, from what's on screen to what's up in the lobby.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with PBS KIDS as we expand our high quality programming for our youngest guests and their parents," said Amy Averett, Director of Family and Community Engagement, Alamo Drafthouse. "Seeing PBS KIDS shows on the big screen adds to the interactive learning experience that parents can build on at home."
