Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar announces a special one-week engagement of EXTRATERRESTRIAL
EXTRATERRESTRIAL is the sexy and hilarious new sci-fi comedy from Nacho Vigalondo (the director of TIMECRIMES). When Julio wakes up in a strange apartment after a night of partying, he’s pleasantly surprised to discover it belongs to a beautiful one-night-stand he can’t remember – Julia.
What’s already an awkward situation is made even more so when they discover a giant flying saucer hovering above the city, which is now deserted. Now Julio must contend with a jealous ex-boyfriend, an eccentric neighbor – and very possibly the end of the world!
EXTRATERRESTRIAL wowed audiences at the Toronto International Film Festival 2011 and Fantastic Fest 2011, where the film won “Best Actor: Julián Villagrán” in the Fantastic Features category.
The film also screened during the Cine las Americas International Film Festival last April and was also well received.
WHEN: Friday, July 13, 2012 – Thursday, July 19, 2012
WHERE: Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, 1120 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704
