Alamo Drafthouse and Film School Rejects Will Blow Texas Sky-High With a Very Special ‘The Road Warrior’ Rolling Roadshow

Perhaps the only thing that goes better with the Alamo Drafthouse than kick-ass movies are big, fiery explosions, so how convenient that, as part of this year’s epic Summer of 1982 screening series, the Drafthouse will combine both of those things for a very special Rolling Roadshow. And how even more convenient that they’ll be putting all that firepower behind a screening that Film School Rejects is co-hosting. You guys! A demolition derby? You shouldn’t have!

On May 18, the Drafthouse’s Summer of 1982 screening series will descend on Kyle, Texas (located between Austin and San Antonio) for a very special 35mm “Rolling Roadshow with Live Thermonuclear Flaming Death Race” for The Road Warrior. You read that right. You want more? You’ll get more! Before the screening kicks into high gear, four fearless daredevil drivers will rev up their wheeled wasteland war machines for a FULL-TILT DESTRUCTION DERBY that will shatter the very Earth!!! Fire will scorch the sky as these no-future automaniacs shatter steel and bones! No, seriously, it’s going to be nuts. Even better? Pre-movie entertainment will be provided by Austin’s “post-apocalyptic punk ayatollahs of rocknrolla” – ROCKATANSKY!
