Austin, TX – Wednesday, October 8, 2014 – The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is pleased to announce our partnership with the Honor Flight Network.  “We have three great World War II films coming out this fall – FURY, THE IMITATION GAME, and UNBROKEN. We want to use this opportunity to honor WWII veterans in our local communities. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas family has grown to 19 theaters in 6 states. We are excited to involve all of our locations in our first national giving effort,” said Amy Averett, Director of Alamo Drafthouse Private and Community Events.

The Honor Flight Network is a network of local nonprofit organizations created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices.  They transport veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.  These “Tours of Honor” are a small way to say thank you for their service and sacrifice.

Every guest who comes to an Alamo Drafthouse location to see FURY, THE IMITATION GAME, and UNBROKEN will be invited to give an additional $1 as part of their ticket purchase to support the Network.  Funds raised in each Alamo community will be donated to the local chapter of the Honor Flight Network. Click here to view an Honor Flight video.

The partnership will kick off at Alamo South Lamar with a special opening
weekend screening of FURY for local veterans at 4:30 pm on October 18th at the South Lamar location with Tim League, CEO/Founder of the Alamo Drafthouse, in attendance. All net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Honor Flight Austin. Support local WWII veterans through the Honor Flight Network when you see FURY, THE IMITATION GAME, and UNBROKEN at the Alamo Drafthouse.
