On Tuesday night, I went to my first Alamo draft movie party. If you are not familiar with Alamo Draft Movie Parties, the movie theater Alamo Draft will hold events were they show a classic movie and they celebrate the movie. They give the audience props maybe do a sing along. The movie party I attended was the Selena Movie Party. The Selena Movie Party was held to celebrate her life and her recent birthday, April 16th. They gave us song lyrics, maracas, a candle, and they did a Selena menu. I ordered the Selena pizza, with a Como La Flor drink. The drink was refreshing, perfect for a summer drink and it wasn’t to sweet. The Selena pizza had extra pepperoni because it was her favorite. Before the movie started they showed interviews of Selena and commercials she did. Also, their was a host and she told us we can use the maracas during the movie because it was a movie party and sing along to her songs. She explained that this would be a different movie party, where at the end of the movie we would lite the candle in memory of Selena. We were definitely missing tissues.
I hadn’t seen the Selena movie in awhile, so I was excited. A friend of mine invited me and we thought staying up late on work night was worth it. I ate my pizza and drank my Como La For drink, and watched the movie like it was the first time. I used the maracas in good parts and tried to sing along. At the end we lite our candles for Selena’s memory. The movie party was definitely worth staying up late. I want to attend another movie party at Alamo Draft, hopefully they have an 80’s theme one.
