The Apartment

 

Alamo Drafthous Ritz : THE APARTMENT New Year’s Eve Feast

  • DATE : Wednesday, Dec 31, 2014
  • SHOWTIME :6:30pm
  • SCREEN :Theater # 1

THE APARTMENT is NOT one of those movies. It is a movie where, within 15 minutes of watching, you realize it is unlike anything you have ever seen before. Jack Lemmon is amazing, Shirley MacLaine is a full-on pixie, super babe, and the chemistry and dialogue snaps and sparkles like you wouldn’t believe. Bill Norris is whipping up some handcrafted cocktails for you that will be available to purchase if you need another little sip after the spectacular feast Alamo Chef Trish Eichelberger whipped up for us while you get swept up in the power of true cinema.

So, if you’re looking for a reason to impress that special someone (or just treat yourself), look no further! Sit back, relax, and let Billy Wilder and The Alamo Drafthouse do all the heavy lifting for you. Movie-wise, there has never been anything like it–laugh-wise, love-wise, or otherwise-wise!

midnight-cowboy-1

MIDNIGHT COWBOY: As a regular oasis from the lively action downtown, Midnight Cowboy is poised to offer a unique package to revelers looking to ring in 2015 downtown, while still being able to get away from it all.  Instead of our normal two hour reservations spaced throughout the night, Midnight Cowboy will once again be offering fifty (50) reservations for the entire evening, beginning at 7 pm and continuing until last call.

Guests who choose to book their New Year’s reservations at Midnight Cowboy will be given a wristband that allows them to come and go throughout the evening, venturing outside into the lively downtown action and then coming back to our oasis to warm up or take a break in a more convivial atmosphere where private conversation is possible and complimentary light snacks will be offered.

The Midnight Cowboy New Year’s Package is $65 per person and includes two drink tickets and a champagne toast at midnight and light snacks.  Reserved guests can come and go all night long, using Midnight Cowboy as a base of operations for their night out, or spend the entire evening with their friends and associates, lest old acquaintances be forgot.

Reservations for New Year’s Eve are available online at http://midnightcowboymodeling.com starting at 4pm today, December 11th.
