Alamo Drafthouse is excited to announce its latest contest, "Win Your Own Ultimate Movie Party." Alamo Drafthouse is known for creative in-theater celebrations for new and repertory films, screenings that combine unique thematic touches to enhance the movie watching experience. These touches have included everything from special food tie-ins, entire audiences in costume, photo booths with themed backdrops, to pre-film contests on stage and more. Now, Alamo is looking for moviegoers to submit their own ideas for the biggest, best, and most creative movie parties to be thrown at their local Alamo Drafthouse theater. Grand prizewinners will have their movie party thrown for free for up to fifty of their friends.
Here's what Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League had to say about the contest.
"I am proudest when we are able to produce an event that movie fans will remember forever. I hope that with this contest, we can do just that."
Patrons are invited to create their "Ultimate Movie Party" by choosing all the elements that go into making a special event at the Alamo Drafthouse, including what is screened, what food and drink is served, props provided, and all the other nuances to make the event special. Alamo Drafthouse Director of Programs Kristen Bell also released a statement.
"Creativity is key. We want to see ideas for movies and elements we haven't seen before. Stagger us with your creative ideas for a perfect movie experience."
Entrants can submit their "Ultimate Movie Party" ideas via Facebook. The deadline for submissions is February 28, 2013. "Ultimate Movie Party" ideas can be almost anything imaginable, but must follow these guidelines:
- Party must take place inside an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema location.
- Party is subject to film/theatrical rights availability.
- Party is subject to minor modifications to ensure it is possible.
- Party should not revolve around a celebrity guest due to possible scheduling conflicts.
From all the submissions made, five finalists and one Grand Prize winner will be chosen per city by a panel consisting of the Alamo Drafthouse programming and events teams. The Grand Prize winners will have movie party thrown for free and can invite up to fifty of their friends.
