Showing up to a movie theater in a mask or with your face covered in greasepaint is a good way to get the cops called on your ass! If you want to attend one of the Alamo Drafthouse’s special screenings of IT: Chapter Two, however, you’d better bust out your red noses and floppy shoes. The boutique theater chain is holding “Clowns Only” shows at locations nationwide.
Here’s the full scoop from this morning’s press release, followed by a list of participating theaters and dates.
In celebration of Stephen King’s magnum opus, Alamo Drafthouse announces its nightmare-fueled clown-only screenings of IT: Chapter Two in 17 theater locations. The massively popular sold-out screenings for the first film took place in just two theaters in 2017, and the theater chain is excited to expand this freakshow across the nation for the highly anticipated sequel. Moviegoers are encouraged to come dressed as a clown – the wig, the makeup, the oversized pants and suspenders, the blood-curdling makeup – and sit through this coulrophobia-inducing fright fest with a theater full of fellow… clowns.
