Alamo Drafthouse Selects Boyhood as Its Next Drafthouse Recommends Film

We’re more than halfway through 2014, yet one of the first films I caught this year, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood at the Sundance Film Festival, still holds as one of my favorite films of the year. Shot over a period of 12 years, the film literally covers main character Mason’s growth from a young boy to young adult, covering themes like father/son dynamics, masculinity, and the typical pangs of becoming the person you’ll become. Linklater’s known for his narrative and cinematic quirks (especially in Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly), but Boyhood always represented his magnum opus, and it certainly delivers.

To commemorate Boyhood‘s release into theaters on July 18th, Alamo Drafthouse has selected the film as part of its “Drafthouse Recommends” program, complete with a special introduction by Alamo Drafthouse CEO and Founder Tim League, a special themed food and drink menu for Alamo Drafthouse theaters, and a special “Don’t Talk” PSA video from director Richard Linklater himself. You can see the aforementioned special items below. I highly recommend Boyhood to anybody that loves films. If you’re lucky enough to live near an Alamo Drafthouse, you can purchase tickets to Boyhood here.
