Armor Up ... No, for Real

A free sneak of Iron Man, with strings attached

Armor Up ... No, for Real

Austinites get a chance for a sneak peek at Iron Man this week, but you're gonna have to work for it. In order to score a ticket to the free Monday night screening (sponsored by Ain't It Cool News and Fantastic Fest), hopefuls will have to send in a photo of themselves dressed up either as Tony Stark or as Iron Man. The 100 best costumes will receive a pair of tickets to the show. But don't junk the homestyled threads – there'll be a costume contest at the screening, along with a demonstration from Mr. Jet Pack International, who plans to fly around the Alamo South Lamar parking lot, then "return to earth to shake hands, hold babies, and sign cleavage." Is he running for office, too?

For more info, check out the Alamo blog here.
