Hello Alamo Drafthouse Community

We wanted to let you know that we have a new page on our website that lists upcoming Open Caption screenings. Additionally, it describes our Closed Captioning and amplification headsets available at all Alamo Drafthouse Austin thea ters.

Screenings for the coming weekend will be updated online by Tuesday mornings as screening times and options change weekly.

Please let us know if you have any questions and thank you for being part of the Alamo Drafthouse community.

¿¿ Retiring ??

After 12 years of publishing Austin Deaf Events I am ready to turn it over to a new person or organization. I was in Byron Bridges's class in the Interpreter Preparation Program at ACC when he recruited me to take over from Joe Ploeger who was retiring the project to turn his attention to his growing family.

My attention is drawn ever more to Argentine tango. I started teaching it over a year ago, and I recently opened my own dance studio in the Oak Hill area of town. (

If you have an interest or know someone or a group who would be good, please get in touch at david@PROTECTED. Cheers!
