IDIOCRACY Returns To Theaters

ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE AND ART HOUSE CONVERGENCE GOT WHAT AMERICA CRAVES. Reunion of Cast & Filmmakers to Mark the 10th Anniversary of IDIOCRACY with Screenings Nationwide, Worldwide Livestream Q&A and Voter Registration Drive Ten years ago, satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world.

Over the past months, thousands have questioned in social media whether IDIOCRACY was actually a documentary. Mike Judge's sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this election conversation. T
