The Alamo and KLRU invite you to a FREE special advance screening of PBS' American Experience's "War of the Worlds" at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane on Tuesday, October 15th at 7:00pm.
To attend this event, RSVP on this Eventbrite page. You may RSVP for up to 2 tickets. This RSVP DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMISSION and seating is limited to theater capacity on a first come, first served basis, so it is crucial to arrive early on the day of the event.
In honor of the 75th anniversary of the original radio broadcast KLRU-TV, Austin PBS, and the Alamo Drafthouse present a preview screening of AMERICAN ENPERIENCE's War of the Worlds. With the CBS radio broadcast of Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" serving as its narrative spine, the film examines the elements that together created one of the biggest purported mass hysteria events in U.S. history.
Public outcry, forever immortalized in thousands of letters written to CBS, the FCC and Mr. Welles himself, are dramatized in on-camera interviews, bringing to life the people who listened that night to the broadcast and thought it was either awfully good fun or the end of the world.
Producer and Director Cathleen O’Connell and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE Executive Producer Mark Samels will be in attendance.
