“The Rolling Roadshow Tour is not simply a series of outdoor movie screenings,” says Alamo Drafthouse Cinema founder Tim League. “The tour is the culmination of everything we have worked towards at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema: fantastic Cinema happenings with celebrity guests, wacky tie-ins, contests, scavenger hunts and the thrill of watching your favorite movies in the exact locations in which they were filmed.”
“I am tremendously excited to be a part of the [Roadshow] experience,” says Chuck “Dorman” Bush, star of the opening film of the tour, Fandango. “I think fan support for this event is going to be unusually high so I’m going to do everything I can to help make it an extremely memorable occasion.”
“Tell your boss now that you’re feeling like you might be under the weather July 18 through August 15,” says Roadshow co-founder Karrie League, “because we want to see you out with us on the 2007 Rolling Roadshow Tour caravan!”
The entire schedule along with details, directions, associated events and celebrity guests is posted on the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Rolling Roadshow website: RollingRoadShow.com. Every screening will also feature an after-party sponsored by Dewar’s White Label Scotch. The website also has links to the stops on the 2005 and 2006 Rolling Roadshow Tour, complete with photos of each screening and a complete description of the event and related activities.
Specific information on the Goldfinger screening at Fort Knox:
The crux of this screening is that we will be within a stone’s throw of the nation’s most mysterious national monument, Fort Knox. Although we will be close to the depository, I’d recommend not actually throwing the stone. The U.S. is still on “code-orange” alert and space lasers may disintegrate your arm nanoseconds after the rock leaves your hand. Seriously, however, due to national security concerns, cameras, recording devices and video cameras will not be permitted at the event and we will be enforcing this at the screening. Prior to the film, we will screen a series of classic and not-so-classic spy trailers, some Bond, some Bond-spoofs.
The primary audience for this film is the soldiers, families and employees stationed at Fort Knox. The event is, however, open to the public. The screening will take place on the Fort Knox Military Base. Entrance to the facility is through the main entrance to the base on Bullion Drive, off Highway 31W. Anyone over the age of 16 will be required to show a valid drivers license, passport or State Issued Identification Card to enter the base. Once inside, there will be clear signage to the screening location.
After the screening, there will be an after-party sponsored by Dewar’s White Label. We will be posting details on the after-party on this website.
