    As movie lovers in Texas know, the Alamo Drafthouse frequently arranges events to coincide with their movies. Here's the announcement for the event going down for the opening of Transformers. Sure hope there's enough tickets for me in case demand increases after I make this public.

    Ain't It Cool News and Fantastic Fest present
    The Ultimate Transformers Experience
    Sponsored in part by AT&T

    (Austin, Texas) The fanboy event of the summer if not the entire new millenium is almost upon us! Forget Spiderman, Pirates and The Simpsons, this summer will come to a fever-pitch climax on July 4 weekend when the Autobots and the Decepticons wage the most epic battle in cinema history.

    At the Alamo, however, we can't just let you walk into the movie cold. In the parking lot, we will be warming you up (literally and figuratively) in an intimate arena where you will catch a live performance by America's original one-and-only real life Transformer, ROBOSAURUS, a fire-breathing, 60 ft. metal-clad car-eating machine. After the show, we will head straight from the arena and into the seats of the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar where Michael Bay's powerhouse cinematic interpretation of the Transformers will play on every screen in the house.

    Tickets for this event go on sale to 2007 Fantastic Fest badge holders on Friday, June 15 at 1:00 PM. The remainder of tickets go on sale on Monday June 17 at 1:00 PM. Prices are $25 for regular admission (includes a seat in the Robosaurus Arena and admission to the July 2 10:00 PM Transformers show). We also have a limited number of VIP tickets available for $75 (includes a front-row seat in the Robosaurus arena, a limited-edition, hand-silk-screened Ulitmate Transformers Experience poster, a reserved seat in the biggest theater of Alamo South Lamar to the July 2 10:00 PM Transformers show, and free popcorn and sodas during the film). Tickets are available at www.originalalamo.com.

    The Ultimate Transformers Experience is sponsored in part by AT&T. Before tickets go on sale to even Fantastic Fest badge holders, customers will have the opportunity to receive up to two free tickets when they “transform” their communications and entertainment services (voice, data, or video) to upgrade their existing services or switch from cable to AT&T. To qualify, orders must be placed in person at an AT&T sponsored event in Austin or at an Austin area AT&T store (formerly Cingular Wireless). Visit your local AT&T store to place orders beginning Monday, May 28.

    This is the only theater in the area I have found that has announced when it is taking ticket pre-sales for a July 2nd showing. That is, in part, why I'm so excited. Not that booking a giant robot isn't interesting.

    I seriously considered attending this event but figured it would be cheaper just to see the movie under normal circumstances. Nobody does these big blockbuster events like the Drafthouse!!
