Free Outdoor Screening Alert!
Anyone interested in movies is familiar with Ain't It Cool News and anyone familiar with Ain't It Cool is familiar with the Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow. The Roadshow was originally scheduled to make a stop in South Central to screen Friday next Friday, but lily-livered politicians decided to pull the permit at the last minute. Fortunately, the Roadshow decided they had to make a stop in L.A. so they've now scheduled a 10th anniversary screening of Boogie Nights for next Friday, July 21st.
The screening is free (although you can buy VIP tickets here) and will be held in the parking lot behind the original location of the Hot Traxx Disco (the opening, Welles-ian tracking shot). An after-party will be at the Kessab Banquet Hall where there will be a display housing the enormous schlong that Mark Wahlberg wore during the film's final reveal. In a related note, foot-long hot dogs will be on sale during the screening (true).
