Adventure Time at the Alamo
Cartoon Network's smash comes to Drafthouse and Mondo
By Richard Whittaker, 4:42PM, Thu. Apr. 12, 2012
Prepare, Austin! It's time for Adventure Time, Cartoon Network's brilliant, bizarre and wondrous series, with a new exhibition at Mondo Gallery and a special feast and showing at the Alamo Drafthouse later this month.
Mondo announced today that, starting April 27, there will be a gallery show of 40 pieces inspired the amazing adventures of Jake, Finn, Marceline, and Princess Bubblegum
If you don't know who they are, well, one, shame on you and, two, that gives you double the reason to attend the Adventure Time Marathon Screening on April 28, with series creator Pendleton Ward and voice actor Tom Kenny (the Ice King) in attendance (The only better way to watch this would be on Beemo.) On top of that, Alamo Executive Chef John Bullington will be fulfilling the feast part of the 10 episode screening with paired treats including Wizard Rainbow Dogs, Decorpsinator Puffs and Meatman Meat. Oh, and did we mention a special exclusive poster, designed by Dave Perillo, comes with the ticket price? Well, that's a good reason to grab you friends.
Adventure Time exhibition, Mondo Gallery, 4115 Guadalupe, April 27-May 26. Opening night April 27, 7-10pm
Adventure Time marathon screening and feast, Alamo Drafthouse S. Lamar, 7pm, Saturday, April 28. Tickets available now.
Of course, this isn't the first time Austin got it some adventuring under its belt: Last November Mondo did another print, that one by Mike Mitchell, and Ward made a memorable appearance last summer at the Juegos Rancheros, the local indie game collective.
