This Summertime Activity In Austin Is Not For The Faint Of Heart
Ominous music plays over reverberating speakers as the moon casts its silvery glow on the water. People file in, toting inner tubes and frozen drinks. A massive projection screen lingers over the lake, and anticipation starts to soar. Everyone’s seen this film dozens of times, but never like this.
Jaws On The Water. Every year, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema hosts a movie-going event that will send shivers down your spine. You may think you can handle this frightening film, but Drafthouse adds extra layers of horror into the mix. This summertime activity in Austin is not for the faint of heart.
It's easy to see why Austinites love seeing movies at The Alamo Drafthouse.
This iconic Austin business began in 1997, and they've completely revolutionized the way people see movies. The Alamo Drafthouse serves scrumptious food and delivers it right to your seat as you watch a movie.
Their creativity knows no bounds.
The Alamo Drafthouse also features rotating specials that correlate with the biggest blockbusters. For instance, if the movie takes place in India, The Drafthouse will serve biriyani and naan. If the film has a whimsical theme, their drinks will taste as light and creative as the picture on the screen.
Nothing is as thrilling as
Jaws On The Water.
This amazing experience is part of Alamo Drafthouse's Rolling Roadshow, a program that aims to bring films to life in a whole new way. For this unique event, each ticket-holder will receive a commemorative inner tube that's built for lounging. Sit back in the reclining comfort and let your feet dangle in the cool Lake Travis waters. With a refreshing drink in hand, you'll be ready to experience
Jaws as it was meant to be seen.
Beware! You don't know what lingers in the deep.
You may hear shrieks and screams coming from outside of the screen. When you embark on this freaky adventure, there are all sorts of startling things in store.
