Alamo Drafthouse Reopens the New Mission Theatre Tomorrow – Pay $5 for Home Alone – And Next Week, Star Wars 7 for $9.25

Friday, December 11th, 2015

You young kids don’t know what inflation is, but I do. And if someone had told me back when I was laboring at some flea-bitten Landmark Theatres, where precious It’s It’s cost $2 and frozen Toblerone bars were $3 and tickets were $6, I think, that you’d be able to see a first-run film for just $9.25 in the heart of Frisco on business-class seating in the Year of our Lord 2015, well I wouldn’t have believed it.

It’s here, opening early, on 12-12-15

Take a look around.

See you there!

I could go either way.

End of Days Bumped Up from 2012 to May 21, 2011 – Alamo Sqaure RV Shows How Mayans Erred

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

You think the world will end in 2012, but that’s where you’re wrong.*

Turns out Armageddon is coming sooner than that.

As seen in the Western Addition, East of NoPA:

Those Mayans are totally pwned by this gambit. Well done.

*Whatever you do, DON”T “get the  toolbar.”

San Francisco Celebrates John Wayne’s Birthday with a Water Balloon Fight.

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Despite the admonishments, it was the Mexicans vs. the Texans last night in Alamo Square at the John Wayne Memorial Water Balloon Fight.


Sadly, some noncombatants got soaked. This woman with a microphone, Irina Slutsky of Geek Entertainment TV, is seen here about to receive another blow from a two-pound water balloon. She also took hits from a few Super Soakers. [UPDATE: Irina might have gotten more than she bargained for, but she was a good sport nvrthlss.] 

There were no reports of injuries. The Duke would be proud.


Interviewer: Can you tell us what you remember about the battle?

Czernek: We’d been fighting for a while. On the seventh day we ran out of ammo. We had to scavenge all we could from the weapons that had been left behind. Pistols, shotgun rounds, a handful of grenades

Interviewer: Do you remember where you were?

Czernek: When Master Chief armed his grenade, I was in the back of an overturned Warthog, firing an M41.

Interviewer: How did you manage to keep it together?

Czernek: We knew Master Chief was still in the fight. He gave us hope.
