Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshows Hit Kansas City!


One of my favorite movie moments ever occurred in the summer of 2006. In Dyersville, Iowa, on the same corn surrounded baseball field used in the film, I sat with 3,000 other fans and watched “Field of Dreams” outdoors on the big screen, part of that summers Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow. As fall approaches, the new Alamo Drafthouse in Kansas City is sponsoring four different outdoor screenings. Imagine watching one of your favorite films under the stars. Now add the bonus fun

Alamo provides with it’s pre-show activities and contests and you’ve got a night to remember. Here is a schedule of the films slated to screen in the next few weeks:
