Alamo Drafthouse Richardson is Thankful for Tough Ladies in November

Alamo DrafthouseNovember will be a great month for you if  you live in Dallas and you are a chick flick fan. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema  ((100 S. Central Expressway #14, Richardson, TX 75080) will feature a special month of program called Tough Ladies.

We’re talking about movies with the fearless, handle their own business kind of women who slayer vampires, hunt Boo Radley, battle morning sickness and kill aliens.

This month the ladies are in charge with a lineup of films featuring some of our favorite tough ladies. From Scout, the tough little girl  in To Kill a Mockingbird to the fearless Buffy, the Vampire Slayer you will love this special chick flick film series.

November’s Tough Ladies series includes these films:

For me, the highlight of the series is To Kill a Mockingbird, starring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch and Mary Badham as Scout. Check out this special video intro by Amy Poehler for  Kill a Mockingbird:

Buffy: The Vampire Slayer

Adventures in Babysitting

Thelma and Louise (Special Beer Dinner)


Foxy Brown

Bonnie and Clyde  (Special Beer Dinner)

“We are thankful for a lot here at Alamo Drafthouse. In November, numero uno on that list is tough ladies, with programming including some of the best films featuring the most bad ass women in film from every genre and era,” said James Wallace, programmer.


November continues with more chick flicks, starring Tom Hanks in their T.HANKSGIVING series. (Get it?…T. Hanks Giving) T.Hanksgiving films include:

Sleepless in Seattle

A League of Their Own

We’re also thankful for Tom Hanks (let’s be honest… who isn’t?), and there’s no better time than Thanksgiving to celebrate the aptly named T. Hanks with our T.HANKSGIVING series, featuring some of the everyman’s all-time greatest films!” Wallace concludes. “You won’t just have turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie to fill up on this month; you’ll have a cornucopia of awesome programming at Alamo Drafthouse Richardson!

More special screenings playing in November include A Streetcar Named Desire, honoring  the 100th anniversary of Vivien Leigh’s birthday. Stella! Stella!
