The latest AIR Time, presented by AIR (Arts Incubator of Richardson), features James Wallace, the Creative Manager/Programmer for Alamo Drafthouse Cinema DFW, who has helped build the Alamo brand in North Texas.
Wallace hails from the world of movie journalism, where he wrote for local print outlets and national online outlets including the Dallas Observer, Dallas Morning News (Quick), Central Track, ENVY Magazine and FirstShowing.net, amongst others.
The conversation with Wallace will be followed by a showing of 1986's Aliens, the first movie James ever saw in a movie theater. He was two years old...and yes, his parents were those parents. Behavior that is, of course, not allowed at the Alamo. But today Wallace thanks his mom and dad for their questionable parenting choices, as it terrified him into his love of movies.
Aliens was written and directed by James Cameron and stars Sigourney Weaver, Paul Reiser and Bill Paxton. It’s a tale of the planet from Alien (1979) which has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower…but will it be enough?
