THE ROLLING ROADSHOW LEONE EDITION
Quentin Tarantino will be in attendance at the screenings and will introduce one of the films. VIP Tickets
Admission is free to the screenings and it's first come, first serve. You can, however, purchase a VIP ticket
for 80 Euros which includes a chair at each of the three screenings, the trio of hand-silkscrened art posters, one for each screening (retail 60 Euros) and a guaranteed spot at each of the three after-parties. VIP tickets are limited to 100, and we expect them to sell out quickly. Tickets will not be mailed out, but rather we will have a will-call list at screening location where you can also pick up your posters. The Leone "Dollars" Trilogy
In 1964, Sergio Leone, an assistant director of Italian "sword and sandal" movies traveled to the Almeria region of Spain to shoot a small film based on Akira Kurosawa's samurai adventure Yojimbo. The leading man was an unknown American bit-part television actor who at 34 years old was well past his matinee-idol potential. The film, was A Fistful of Dollars; the actor, Clint Eastwood. No one could have imagined the explosive force of this seemingly modest film. Sergio Leone is now considered by many film historians to be one of the most influential directors of all time. Few films have reshaped the visual style of cinema more than Sergio Leone's quintessential "Spaghetti Western" trilogy, and even fewer films elevate the filming location to the status on par with lead actor. Like John Ford's American southwest, Leone's Almeria region plays a vital role in shaping the emotion and spirit of his films. Leone's stylistic and graphic depictions of the Old West elevated a marginalized genre to an art form and influenced today's filmmakers. About The Alamo Drafthouse
