Now Celebrating our 13th Year as the Southwest's Premier Horror Convention

  • Texas Frightmare Weekend is excited to welcome Alamo Drafthouse Dallas / Fort Worth​ as our Official 2018 Theater Sponsor! As many of you know we’ve worked with Alamo in different capacities over the years. With the new partnership we plan to amp up their involvement at the May 4-6, 2018 event. Expect to see Thursday night TFW x Mondo screening(s) at Alamo, Alamo’s Creative Manager & Programmer James Wallace​ moderating panels at TFW, VIP gift bag items from Alamo and an Alamo booth at the show. Also, our main screening room will be branded as the Alamo Drafthouse Screening Room. About Alamo Drafthouse Tim and Karrie League founded Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in 1997 as a single-screen mom and pop repertory theater in Austin, TX. Twenty years later, the now 29-location chain has been named "the best theater in America" by Entertainment Weekly and "the best theater in the world" by Wired. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has built a reputation as a movie lover's oasis not only by combining food and drink service with the movie-going experience, but also introducing unique programming and high-profile, star studded special events. Alamo Drafthouse created Fantastic Fest, a world renowned film festival dubbed "The Geek Telluride" by Variety. Fantastic Fest showcases eight days of genre cinema from independents, international filmmakers and major Hollywood studios. The Alamo Drafthouse's collectible art gallery, Mondo, offers breathtaking, original products featuring designs from world-famous artists based on licenses for popular TV and Movie properties including Star Wars, Star Trek & Universal Monsters. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is expanding its brand in new and exciting ways, including partnering with the film distribution company NEON, Birth.Movies.Death., an entertainment content platform for movie lovers, and the American Genre Film Archive, a non-profit film archive dedicated to preserving, restoring and sharing exploitation-era film. https://www.texasfrightmareweekend.com/alamo-drafthouse-named-official-theatre-sponsor-texas-frightmare-weekend-2018/
