The Drafthouse Alliance: Get Drafthouse Films Movies Delivered to Your Doorstep!

The Alamo Drafthouse has become a staple stop whenever any of my friends travel down to Austin. And we cannot wait for them to finally open up here in Dallas! Their movie going experience is unbeatable, and almost all of that is attributed to founder Tim League's passion of creating a movie theatre and community for true movie fans.

A couple years ago, League branched out and created Drafthouse Films, the distributing arm of the theatre. Since its inception, Drafthouse Films has distributed FOUR LIONS, MIAMI CONNECTION, ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS, KLOWN, THE FP, and the Oscar nominated BULLHEAD.

Now it's time for the next step. An announcement came today that Drafthouse Films placed out a call to action:
Our motto is simple: "share the movies we love with the widest audience possible." Under the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema banner — a progressive institution for movie fans, run by movie fans — we follow the same principles with our brand by curating a distribution label with only the movies we believe in. With this membership, you are joining us in the collective pursuit of diverse visionary and provocative films new and old from around the globe. Join us.

Their new subscription service in which members pay a flat fee of $124.99 and receive loads of perks:

  • Receive a current or upcoming Drafthouse Films release of your choice and the next 9 releases on DVD or Blu-ray automatically to your door step
  • High-quality 720p HD Digital Download of each film (redeem code included in DVD/Blu-ray packaging)
  • Instant download of each film's Soundtrack in 320kbps MP3 (when available)
  • Invites to exclusive Drafthouse Films events and screenings at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and venues around the country
All shipping and handling charges are included in the Drafthouse Films Alliance membership.

The last bullet really got my attention. The Alamo Drafthouse always has awesome special events including movie themed dinners, rare 35mm screenings, and summer-long weekly parties. However, unless you're watching twitter or on your computer at the perfect time, a lot of those events can sell out within minutes. So, to be able to be basically on a VIP list for events and screenings is pretty awesome. They always seem to come up with new and unique events every year, and it's always exciting to go.

Now where can I find some extra cash??
