Come early and enjoy dinner at your favorite City Market restaurants, then head over to City Market Park to grab a spot for the Alamo Drafthouse pre-show starting at 8:30 p.m. Feel free to bring your own lawn chair, blanket and cooler. Treats will be available for cash purchase from Alamo Drafthouse concessions. City Market Park is at 3rd & Main just west of City Market Square, movie begins at 9:00 p.m.
