One of the great pleasures of visiting an Alamo Drafthouse (aside from the great presentation and food and drink offerings) is the pre-show reel, handpicked to go along with whatever feature you’re watching.
But not everyone can get to a Drafthouse, so we thought it’d be fun to share our IT pre-show videos here for all to see. As you might expect, they are very clown-heavy…
First up, the amazing musical short film Monsieur Pointu:
Naturally, there is a scary clown commercial:
...and something from Japanese television:
Here's a great musical performance from Leo Sayer:
Some more Japanese clown action:

Whether this one lacks clowns is debatable, but it certainly ties into IT well:
Here is one we're very excited about! A video compilation of the Top Ten Strangest Stephen King Adaptations!

Here's a real gem. It's the Georgie scene from WOH, the Indian version of IT (which you can read more about here):
And finally, what IT pre-show could be complete without trailers for the Tim Curry IT miniseries?
