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. Before the screening blows your face off, 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! And also pre-movie entertainment will be provided by Austin’s “post-apocalyptic punk ayatollahs of rocknrolla” – ROCKATANSKY! It’s gonna pretty cool, you guys.
Tickets are just fifteen dollars each and you can buy them HERE (along with other Summer of 1982 Roadshows currently on sale). After the break, check out details for this Roadshow, plus a very special new Road Warrior trailer, made just for this explosive event.
