Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'




Alamo Drafthouse at the New Mission Theater is pleased to announce the initial programming lineup for its December 17th Grand Opening through early 2016. Moviegoers in the San Francisco Bay Area will be able to experience the latest Hollywood blockbusters alongside independent, foreign and documentary films, plus one-of-a-kind events and repertory programming -- all carefully curated by the New Mission Theater programming team.

"The five screens at the New Mission provide an incredible opportunity to showcase a broad spectrum of first-run and signature titles, a mix that we feel confident will thrill Bay Area's vibrant filmgoing community," said Alamo Drafthouse at the New Mission Creative Manager Mike Keegan. "From reaching deep into the American Genre Film Archive for titles like RAW FORCE to presenting selections of the New York International Children's Film Fest, from partnering with some of our favorite breweries for paired screenings during SF Beer Week to playing new classics like SIXTEEN CANDLES and restorations like LADY SNOWBLOOD, this initial signature programming calendar provides a great cross-section of what makes this theater so exciting."

Alamo Drafthouse at the New Mission Theater will celebrate its Grand Opening December 17th with the highly anticipated STAR WARS: EPISODE VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS. JOY and THE HATEFUL EIGHT will be hitting the New Mission in subsequent weeks, as well as an engagement of Academy Award-shortlisted THE LOOK OF SILENCE., and will host a special SF Sketchfest tribute to actress Sally Field with a screening of HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS.
