The Alamo Drafthouse Theater is at it again and will be hosting clown-only screenings of IT: Chapter Two.
Alamo Drafthouse is, of course, known for such gimmicks. At one point, in 2017, the company actually came under for fire for hosting an all woman’s night for that year’s Wonder Woman but that did not stop the company from continuing similarly themed nights. That same year, the company did something similar by hosting a clown only screeing of the first IT film. In this particular instance, however, it was only available in Austin, Texas. This time around, the Alamo Drafthouse will be hosting the event in 11 cities at 17 locations throughout the United States for IT: Chapter Two.
The locations for the Alamo Drafthouse event will include Austin, TX, San Antonio, TX, Los Angeles, CA, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, CO, Phoenix, AZ, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, Raleigh, NC, Springfield, MO, and Twin Cities, MN.
Based on this, it looks like Alamo Drafthouse will be bringing scares and laughs all over the United States this time around!
What do you all make of this new Almo Drafthouse event? Will you be going to IT: Chapter Two’s screening dressed like a clown? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here’s the official synopsis for IT: Chapter Two:
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “IT CHAPTER TWO” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
IT: Chapter Two will star Bill Skarsgard, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Jay Ryan, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Wyatt Oleff.
IT: Chapter Two hits theaters on September 6, 2019.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
