No Monkeying Around for Alamo Apes

Classic Mondo print up for grabs at Planet of the Apes

Jason Edmiston's classic "Go Ape" Mondo print, up for grabs at the Alamo Lakeline on Friday

So by now everyone know the Alamo Lakeline has damn dirty paw prints all over its Planet of the Apes-themed lobby. Friday night, they'll be beating their chests with the original Planet of the Apes, plus a special chance to win a classic Mondo print.

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the last thing Charlton Heston did that didn't make us cringe, the Drafthouse is screening a 35mm print of the 1968 post-apocalyptic classic. Not only that, but one lucky attendee will win a copy of Mondo regular Jason Edmiston's poster for last year's Go Ape five movie marathon.

Of course, this being a Drafthouse special screening, no-one's expecting you to don your best monkey suit. However, ape-themed attire is recommended, from gorilla suits to a Gorilla Biscuits t-shirt.

The screening kicks off at 7.20pm on July 26 at Alamo Lakeline. Check our listings for details.
