If we didn’t have Alamo Drafthouse, we wouldn’t go to nearly so many movies. In my household it’s often a case of, “I feel like puerco guisada; is there anything playing that we’d want to see?” I finally tried their seasonal caprese appetizer, and now we need to go see more stuff before it’s off the menu!
Don’t tell me you can knit tiny cables in a movie theater or I will have to hate you. I usually take a One Row Scarf to movies (it’s only 4 stitches) but anything else is right out. But this sounds like this is more of a dinner theater thing? That would not require you to have some sort of special, super-human knitting magic.
Oh, no, no knitting magic required. Alamo Drafthouse creates their own pre-show entertainment reels that run for 45 minutes before the movie starts, so instead of stupid trivia and ads you get to watch fun stuff. For example, Salt had trailers and interviews from Angelina Jolie’s earlier movies, and Scott Pilgrim had video game and comic stuff.
We usually try to get there when seating begins, so we can order food (and if we’re lucky, eat it) before the movie itself starts. So I knit while the lights are still up, before the movie.
