Snakes in a Lobby!
So popular, in fact, that the folks at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema are planning a little tie-in (media term) for tonight: Snakes in a Theater. (Insert horror movie female shriek here)
Tonight, starting at 5:30 p.m. snake handlers from the Houston Zoo will be on hand at the Drafthouse Mason Road location, introducing passers-by and moviegoers to real live snakes. Don't sweat it if you can't make it tonight; there'll be a similar event going on at Alamo's West Oaks location tomorrow evening.
"You don't have to see Snakes on a Plane to see the snakes," says Papa Josh, who adds that the first person to come in and hiss like a snake gets a free poster. Seriously.

He also says he has no idea what kind of snakes will show up today and tomorrow, but assures us that they'll be there.
No idea? WTF? And what happens if one of the "muthaf***** snakes!" is a ruthless killer bent on taking over the theater and devouring moviegoers like mice? Will Josh pull a Sam J? Is there a Killer Snake Contingency Plan?
"Uh, we have some snake safety posters from the studio," says Josh.
