I’m happy to announce our first expansion outside of New York and Los Angeles: Austin. The Nines will be starting at the Alamo Drafthouse (South Lamar) on September 28th. There’s a Q&A in the works for that weekend with me and Ryan — most likely on the 28th — so be sure to check back for details.
Originally, we were going to open in Austin the same day as NY/LA, but the Venice Film Festival threw a wrench in that. The logistics of getting from LA to Austin to NYC to Venice proved insurmountable, and we didn’t want to open without a Q&A. September feels better, anyway. Classes would have just started on August 31st, and that first week of school is more about mini-fridges and freak-outs than trippy meta-movies.
I’m a frequent panelist at the Austin Film Festival, and Ryan just shot a movie there, so it’ll be good to go back and catch up with friends and colleagues. And the bats.
As previously noted, The Nines opens August 31st in New York and Los Angeles, with a special Q&A at the LA screening on August 31st at 7:30 pm, and an introduction at the 10 pm show. Tickets are on sale now.
