The Alamo Drafthouse andpresent – Epic MOONSTRUCK and La Femme Bohème Boat Party! Join us October 29th for the most joyously romantic adventure of your lives. First, you will watch the 1987 Academy Award winning movie MOONSTRUCK at Alamo Ritz. Then you will board a Capital Cruises double-decker ship for a sunset cruise featuring a full concert version of La Femme Bohème by LOLA. Your evening cruise will include drinks and snacks.
La Femme Bohème is the award winning (3 Austin Critics Table Awards) and original all-female version of Puccini’s classic opera, La Bohème. LOLA first produced La Femme Bohème in the summer of 2014. “LFB” has since gone on to be performed in Boston, Tennesse, and was remounted in Austin in 2016 and 2017.
About MOONSTRUCK: A celebration of love, passion, family and life, director Norman Jewison's MOONSTRUCK is, to put it simply, one of the best romantic comedies of all time. John Patrick Shanley's tale of perfectly mismatched lovers deservedly won the 1987 Academy Award for best original screenplay, and it's a splendid piece of writing: uproarious yet touching, poignant yet playful. Cher (who won the best actress Oscar) is fiercely funny as Loretta Castorini, a widowed bookeeper who has given up on waiting for Mr. Right and agreed to marry kind, bland Johnny (Danny Aiello). However, when Loretta meets Johnny's wild-hearted brother, Ronny (the volcanic/vulnerable Nicolas Cage), her dull life suddenly spirals out of control and she is transformed from frumpy to ravishing.
Your ticket includes:
MOONSTRUCK in 35mm @ Alamo Ritz at 3:45pm
Boat Party and LOLA Performance on Capital Cruises from 6pm-9pm
