Good lord, this is cool. SO COOL. The actual coolest.
The Alamo Drafthouse is proud to present a unique Rolling Roadshow adventure. On June 21st, guests will roll out to beautiful Burnet, TX, aboard a vintage steam train to watch an exclusive advance screening of the highly anticipated SNOWPIERCER with Director Bong Joon Ho in attendance.
The latest from the acclaimed director of THE HOSTand MOTHER, SNOWPIERCER is a sci-fi thriller set in a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off all life on the planet except for a lucky few that boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that perpetually travels around the globe. A class system has evolved aboard the train, fiercely dividing its population, and revolution brews. Starring Chris Evans, Song Kang Ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, John Hurt, and Ed Harris, SNOWPIERCER opens in theaters on June 27th.
Guests will get a taste of life aboard a speeding train - albeit in much more comfort - with a ride to and from the screening on the Hill Country Flyer Steam Train. Boarding begins at 5:30 pm. The train will depart from Cedar Park, TX, promptly at 6:00 pm and arrives in Burnet at 7:45 pm. The screening will take place under the stars, after sundown at 8:45 pm. Food and beverage will be available for sale on site at the screening.
Director Bong Joon Ho will be on hand to introduce the film and for a post-show Q&A. Alamo CEO and Founder, Tim League, will host the event.
