Do512 and the Alamo Drafthouse are back with their free summer event series, Sound & Cinema. Presented by the Texas Lottery, Sound & Cinema is one of Austin’s most popular summer events, drawing thousands of people to the lawn at the Long Center to enjoy an evening of outdoor family fun with an amazing view of downtown.
Now entering its fifth season, the event series features unique pairings of classic films with popular bands hand-picked from Texas. The bands perform a musical tribute to the movie, followed by a screening of the film on Alamo’s giant inflatable outdoor screen, with the Austin skyline providing a picturesque backdrop.
In addition to music and movies, the four-event summer series will feature a selection of Austin’s best food trucks, including Garbo’s, Mama Fu’s, Moojo Ice Cream, Newk’s, Rosarito’s, Slab BBQ, The Peached Tortilla, and Uncle Louie G’s. There will also be full bar service on the terrace, offering a variety of cocktails, craft beers, and non-alcoholic drinks.
Sound & Cinema will take place on select Wednesdays in June and July. Each event is free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
On the schedule are: June 21: Princess Bride featuring ICING (covering Cake); June 28: Raising Arizona featuring The Quaker City Night Hawks; July 19: Galaxy Quest featuring Special Guest (TBA); July 26: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World featuring A Giant Dog
