Guillermo del Toro Retrospective Begins Sunday at Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park
In anticipation of the release of Crimson Peak on Oct. 16, Alamo Drafthouse is serving up a killer retrospective of Guillermo del Toro’s movies over the next four weekends. Every Sunday through Oct. 11, Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park is hosting double features showing every single film del Toro has directed, from his low-budget Mexican vampire film Cronos (1993) to the mega-budget shoulda-been blockbuster Pacific Rim (2013).
Here’s the expertly curated schedule:
- Cronos & Mimic on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m. (buy tickets here)
- Hellboy & Hellboy II: The Golden Army on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 4 p.m. (buy tickets here)
- The Devil’s Backbone & Pan’s Labyrinth on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 4 p.m.
- Blade II & Pacific Rim on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 4 p.m.
“All screenings will be held at Vintage Park theater, and they’re going to be full of gears and bugs and dark, fantastical whimsy,” said Meredith Borders, managing editor at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, in a post at Birth.Movies.Death. She will join Alamo Drafthouse Houston programming director Robert Saucedo in presenting the The Complete Del Toro retrospective starting this Sunday.
