STAR WARS MARATHON - “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…"
It’s been 39 years since audiences first read those words on movie screens. Thirty-nine years since we first learned of the Force, of Jedi, lightsabers, X-wings and the Death Star. But even after all those years, the Force is still strong with us all.
This August, the Alamo Drafthouse invites you to celebrate your love for the movie trilogy that changed so many of our lives for the better, with this incredibly rare digital screening of the special edition versions of A NEW HOPE, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and THE RETURN OF THE JEDI. This marathon event will give STAR WARS fans a chance to experience these classic adventures in a room filled with thousands of other devoted STAR WARS enthusiasts!
We’re hoping to see crowds of people dressed in their finest Jedi robes or Galactic Empire uniforms, so start working on your costumes now (or just dust off your favorite from your collection). Live emcees from the Alamo’s team will host costume contests and trivia games, and we’ll have photographers on hand to capture all the excitement.
PLEASE NOTE: For this event, outside food and snacks will be permitted. A food truck will be available outside the theatre during the intermissions.

LUNA MEXICANA - Oakland Ballet celebrates the iconic Mexican holiday, El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with colorful costumes, vibrant music and festive dancing. Day of the Dead originated in the Aztec Culture and evolved into a Mexican/American Festival celebrated on November 1st and 2nd with processions, decorating graves of loved ones, and the building of Ofrendas (offerings) to honor the dead.
In Luna Mexicana, a young woman’s dreams revive her relatives and friends who all dance back to life in the forms of teetering skeletons, skirt swishing girls, a high flying “deer dancer” and a deathly Bride and Groom. Luna Mexicana is danced to a suite of Mexican music that includes indigenous instruments and witty electronic fusions.
The audience is encouraged to attend in Day of the Dead costume appropriate for a public community event.
