Nobody punches a snake like Jean-Claude Van Damme. That’s just a fact. Witness:
One of the great things about having an Alamo Drafthouse in your town is that they do all kinds of screenings of movies that aren’t your typical, awards-worthy fare, and they do them up right — with unbridled campy, enthusiasm.
Case in point:
8/13 UPDATE: The mystery line-up and special menu for Thursday’s VAN DAMMAGE event at the Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet have kicked, punched, and round-housed their way into the open.
The menu created for VAN DAMMAGE is action packed as well. Moviegoers can enjoy three special dishes that will put a stranglehold on even the largest appetite – KUMITE CHOP SUEY, a dish packed with meat, eggs, veggies and noodles. ANDREW SCOTT’S EAR NECKLACE, freshly fried pork rinds fit to be strung together and worn, or dipped in a spicy soldier dipping sauce. Finally, finish off your hunger with HARD TARGET BEIGNETS, a sweet and delicious New Orleans treat of fried dough finished with powdered sugar and served with chicory syrup.
5:00 PM – BLOODSPORT
6:45 PM – HARD TARGET
8:45 PM – UNIVERSAL SOLDIER
11:00 PM – EXPENDABLES 2
We will have someone there to cover the event because a marathon of this magnitude, quite simply has to be seen to be believed. The Kansas City Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet is selling tix now, and this is just a preview of what you can expect from these guys because the theater hasn’t really even had its official Grand Opening yet.
