In the eight months since it's opened, Alamo Drafthouse has honored Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and even Britney Spears with an all-night dance party in their new Mission digs. But now it's time to celebrate the real queen: Beyoncé!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Alamo's dance parties, for one night the movie theater in transformed into a club, but unlike every other club in town, everyone gets their own private VIP table (your movie seat) and great service, including their signature chips and queso. Music video compilations are played on the big screen and there are plenty of glow sticks, props, specialty cocktails, and confetti to go around.
Thursday night's Sing-Along will be a collection of the best of Beyonce, with hits from Lemonade all the way back to early Destiny's Child. There will be rings you can put on it for Single Ladies, inflatable microphones for hitting those high notes, and more fun surprises throughout the event. We'll be the ones in the back leotards. All hail the queen.
// Thursday, Aug. 18, 8:30pm at Alamo Drafthouse, 2550 Mission St. (Mission), get tickets here.
