January 21, 2014 // Franchising.com // Austin, TX - This February, the Alamo Drafthouse celebrates the spirit of Valentine's Day all month long with a slate of love-themed national programming screening at locations everywhere throughout the month.
February's slate of films is an eclectic mix of romantic classics, both old and new, from time-honored heavy-hitters Casablanca and WEST SIDE STORY, to the modern favorites You've Got Mail and MOULIN ROUGE (presented in spectacular! spectacular! sing-along style). Additionally, select locations will host special Valentine's Day Feast screenings of Casablanca, featuring a four-course menu of Moroccan-inspired cuisine.
"Whether you're looking for a special date with your Valentine or just a great night out with friends, our February programming offers something for everyone," says Alamo Drafthouse Lead Programmer Sarah Pitre. "It's not just a celebration of love, it's a celebration of fantastic cinema."
Additionally, both You've Got Mail and Casablanca are selections from the "Alamo 100," a list of essential films chosen by the theater's programmers. Unveiled in January, "Alamo 100" titles will be a part of the theater's nationwide programming throughout 2014. Free collectible button pins themed to each title will be available while supplies last at every Alamo 100 screening.
February's montage of coming attractions featuring these titles hits screens at all Alamo locations this week. It's also viewable online here: vimeo.com/83247135
