Upcoming Events - February 2009

February 6th
Come out to Alamo Drafthouse Ritz to support local filmmaker, Ernie Cline. Austin Browncoats might remember him as our Talent Show winner from Geekstravaganza 2007.
Set in 1998, the story tells of a group of friends who, eager for the premiere of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - and because one of them is suffering from cancer and wishes to see the film before his death - decide to break into Skywalker Ranch and steal an early print of the film. A road trip begins as the friends encounter William Shatner, obsessed Trekkies, and bikers who make them undress for water.
Can't wait to see you there!

When: 9:45 PM
Cost: General Admission - $8.50

Love Bites, a Valentine's Day Celebration

Don't have any Valentine's Day plan? Love 80's Power Ballads? Hate Hallmark?
Join Austin Browncoats as we choo-choo-choose to ROCK instead of eat chocolates and smell the roses!
We'll hold lighters in the air and sway, we'll pound our fists at the sky in defiance of those who would dare not love us, and we'll do it all with teased hair and animal print tights on. Featuring the music of Guns 'n Roses, Motley Crue, Warrant, and more - it's okay to cry, just make sure your hair is big while you do it.
And if you feel the need to dress the part, please do! Any Austin Browncoat who shows up in costume will be entered into a raffle that will be held at March's All-Con.

Where: Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Austin
When: 9:35 PM
