Innovative theater company expands partnership with HBO, beginning with Stephen King adaptation “The Outsider.”
Austin, Texas (December 13, 2019) – It’s not TV, it’s HBO… on the big screen.
Austin-based cinema-eatery Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is expanding a partnership with HBO that will bring four highly-anticipated new series to Alamo Drafthouse theaters across the country. These free one-night-only nationwide events begin Wednesday, January 8th with an early look at “The Outsider,” and will continue throughout 2020.
“I’m so excited to continue our partnership with HBO in celebrating their incredible slate of original programming,” says Henri Mazza, Vice President of Content, Sponsorship & Events. “And providing fans a chance to watch the new Stephen King event series premiere in our theaters is so much fun.”
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name, “The Outsider” begins by following a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a young boy. But when an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case, it leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe in. Starring Ben Mendelsohn and Cynthia Erivo, “The Outsider” is produced by Mendelsohn and executive producer Jason Bateman (who also directs the first two episodes), and premieres on HBO on Sunday, January 12th at 10pm ET / 9pm CT.
“The Outsider” screens Wednesday, January 8th at the following Alamo Drafthouse locations. Admission is free for members of Alamo Victory, Alamo Drafthouse’s loyalty program.
