A classic flick from Alamo Drafthouse coupled with Salt Lick barbecue under the stars in Driftwood sounds like the perfect way to wind down the summer. And you can attend these outdoor film nights not just once, but several times over the following months.

Last week in a press release, Salt Lick BBQ along with partner Alamo Drafthouse announced the return of an outdoor film series. The first event scheduled for Sunday, August 28th will take place under the night skies at Salt Lick’s Pecan Grove located next to the Driftwood watering hole. Additional screenings will take place on alternating Sundays.

Guests of these Texas-style nighttime cinematic presentations can expect to belly up to a bbq buffet bursting with all the Salt Lick favorites including brisket, ribs, and sausage. Alcohol will not be available, but responsible adults are welcome to bring their bevvy of choice.
Just as the lights go down at the start of a movie in the theater, as twilight falls, the film will begin over this idyllic Hill Country hotspot. Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell will light up the screen with spurs a-janglin’ and guns a-blazin’ in “Tombstone” scheduled for August 28th, with Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” scheduled for September 11, and finally on September 25th, “Serenity” takes us into the future on a quest to save a girl with special talents from evil.

Tickets are $38 and can be purchased in advance at drafthouse.com or can be purchased by cash or credit at the door. Although all ages are welcome, minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Movies take place rain or shine but screenings will be moved indoors in the case of bad weather. Don’t worry if you can’t make any of these first events, promoters are planning additional dates for the future.
