Tintin to the rescue
This week, don’t just see Tintin. Be Tintin (with a little help from the AlamoDrafthouse)!
Paramount Pictures’ The Adventures of Tintin will be entering wide release this Wednesday and, as usual, the Alamo Drafthouse will be having a little bit of fun to celebrate the release of Steven Spielberg’s latest film.
At the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar for this week only, patrons will have a chance to take group photos in a special booth set up in the theater's main lobby. A professional photographer will be on hand this Wednesday through Saturday between the hours of 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. each day. Every photo will be provided via the Alamo Facebook page within 24 hours for everyone to enjoy.
The photo booth recreates a classic scene from the pages of the original comic book series, which the upcoming film is based on. The original serial stories were created and written by Belgian writer and artist Hergé and were published from 1929 until the late 1970s. Numerous adaptations in radio, television and film have been produced in the decades since the original publications, attesting to the legacy of the stories about a young reporter and his adventures with his loyal fox terrier, Snowy.
Spielberg’s adaptation utilizes motion-capture technology and will feature the voices and performances of Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, among others.
