Default Alamo Drafthouse in Austin hosting Indiana Jones Trilogy screening April 11

I just saw this on Aintitcoolnews.com and, having NEVER seen Indy on the big screen, I am seriously contemplating driving 2 hours to Austin just to see the trilogy in style.

They're serving a six-course meal to sate your sizable appetites during the screening.

Tickets are $96. It's an extra $25 for drinks, but I want to enjoy this experience sober.

Has anyone been to the Austin Alamo Drafthouse Cinema before? Is it worth that kind of dough? I don't want to get there and see it's some tiny screen that wasn't even worth my time, gas or money.

An all day Food & Film Event featuring rare 35mm screenings of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM & INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE back-to-back!

There are very few perfect triple installment series in the history of film. In fact, it's practically inarguable that the INDIANA JONES movies comprise the single most entertaining three-part saga in cinema. Thank goodness they never ruined this untouchable trilogy by producing another, lesser entry!

To celebrate the flawlessness of ALL THREE of the INDIANA JONES movies, we're pleased to present the most white-knuckle, whip-crackin', globe-spanning feast/festival event the Alamo has ever seen! Join us for an all-day triumph of ark-findin', heart-stealin', grail-gettin' and Nazi-meltin' along with a delicious meal from each country Indy rampages through on his way to the the climax of the THIRD and FINAL film! This once-in-a-lifetime experience will truly be an event to remember, to be enjoyed (and digested) by the most powerful fans of big screen adventure, all proud to live in a LaBeouf-free universe!!
(Zack)

The complete menu is HERE...and you'd better believe that there will be dishes from each continent Indy & co. set foot on, from South American favorites to Egyptian delicacies to the Holy Grail of desserts, all prepared by Alamo chefs John Bullington and Elijah Horgan!:

1 - Fresh Catch
Striped Bass roasted in a tangerine sauce over wild forest mushrooms on mixed jungle greens

2 - Mousaka
Lamb, dates, in ancient Egyptian spices on roast tomato

3 - Snake Curry
Slow cooked snake and plantain in madras curry served with black rice on banana leaf

4 - Eyeball Soup
Roast pearl onion soup

5 - Fuhrer’s Fave
Richardson Farm’s Pork cutlet breaded and fried with sauerkraut and spaetzle

6 - Monkey Brains!!!
Sweet coconut risotto, strawberry reduction, lychee nut, monkey skull

...And for all you thrill-seekers: don't be surprised if some beetles end up as a side dish!

I really think that SXSW is going to be my big vacation next year. I really love Austin and throw in great music at it seem like a no brainer.

You know, I've been thinking the very same thing. I've heard it's on the expensive side to be there for SXSW though.

It's cool city, but the hotels that are in the center of the action are kinda on the pricey side. I would hate to be outside on town trying to get out after a solid night of partying.

It not that bad, it's lamb, pork, snake and pearl onion soup. Nothing to unusually and most of it seem buried in sauces.

I live in Austin and I have to say the Alamo drafthouse is a great time and well worth the money. Do it Clayton, you won't regret it.

The Continental in Denver used to have Wednesday night screenings of older classic movies on their giant screen a few years ago... showed Raiders of the Lost Ark (IMO the only great movie in the series). Tickets were $5.

I also live in Austin and the Alamo is a great place to see these movies. They serve beer and decent food and its a fun experience. SXSW can be a blast too but dont buy a wristband. There are tons of free, good shows all over town. Day shows with free food and drinks are also out there. My band played twice to enthusiastic, packed clubs and I saw a ton of great bands. I highly recommend it if you are in to live music.
