Alamo to screen, discuss ‘Star Wars’ trailer

The Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar will hold a special panel discussion at 9 a.m. on Friday about the new teaser for “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens.”

After the screening of the 88-second teaser, Drafthouse honcho Tim League and a group of panelists to be named will discuss the teaser.

The Drafthouse says the plan is as follows: “We will watch it (the teaser), discuss it for two minutes, and repeat for an hour. That means we’ll be watching the trailer 17 times and discussing it 17 times with more and more fine granular detail each time.”

The event is free, but seats are limited. The first to get in will be a group of Alamo Victory members. And if other seats are available, the general public wil be allowed to attend. The panel will consist of four “Star Wars” experts, with one mystery slot to be filled by the biggest “Star Wars” fan in Texas. If you think you’re that person and want to attend, then you need to tell the Drafthouse via Twitter or Instagram, with one photo. Use the tags @drafthouse and #AlamoJedi to qualify.

You need to act fast, however. The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. today. The winner will also get to bring nine friends to a Drafthouse screening of the new “Star Wars” movie when it is released next year.
