Alamo Drafthouse presents The Bad Batch "Long Pig" Roast
It's gonna be one helluva weird weekend in Austin as Alamo Drafthouse presents a smoky, meaty, and explosive celebration of Neon's The Bad Batch with a "Long Pig" Roast event. Writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour and star Suki Waterhouse will both be in attendance for a special post-film discussion. The Q&A will be beamed out live to concurrent screenings of The Bad Batch happening at Alamo Drafthouse locations across the country.
A special barbecue menu inspired by The Bad Batch will be prepared by Micklethwait Craft Meats on-site so that guests can literally sink their teeth into the action. The event will also see the debut of Black Star Brewing Cooperative's limited edition Bad Batch Ale, a smoked session ale brewed with peachwood smoked malt and a touch of lemon verbena. The night's festivities are also set to include pre-show entertainment, an explosive and appropriately weird Dad's Day photo booth, and what promises to be a raucous post-movie party.
The Bad Batch is the second film from Ana Lily Amirpour. In an undefined future, society's unwanted are exiled to a Texas wasteland, left to their own strange devices. This is the world into which Arlen finds herself thrust, wandering among bodybuilding cannibals and acid-dropping cult leaders. A modern inheritor of the true, Jodorowsky-inflected midnight movie style, The Bad Batch is a trip unlike any have taken in recent years.
