After the Austin community was terrorized by a serial bomber that left two dead and five injured in the month of March, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is commanding police, fire and EMS staff in Austin for their work and keeping our community safe.
In recognition of their extraordinary job, first responders get free admission to any Alamo Drafthouse screening (excluding special events) at any time on any day of the week, at all six Austin locations. The month-long special is valid through Wednesday, April 25.
The offer is good for one free ticket per transaction, per day, and it only works in person, at the box office. It’s valid at Austin locations only. Participants must bring along a current work ID or badge from any law enforcement agency (local, state or federal), fire department, or Austin-Travis County EMS.
During one of the most fearful months in Austin history, the capital city was terrorized when three bombs disguised as packages were left on the victims’ front porches or in their yards in east Austin over the course of 10 days. This was followed by two additional bombings that used different tactics, including a tripwire.
The morning of Wednesday, March 21, after 19 days of panic had swept the city, police declared the man responsible for the bombings, Mark Anthony Conditt, killed himself with an explosive device as they were closing in on him in Round Rock.
The Austin community remembers the two members of our community whose lives were lost in the incident: Anthony Stephan House, a senior project manager at Texas Quarries, a supplier of limestone from the state, and Draylen Mason, a student and bass player accepted into the selective Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin.
