    2020 Uncaged New Year's Bash

    New Year’s Eve at the HighBall has evolved for the times. The Alamo virtual team has re-created the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, the Highball, karaoke rooms, and theatres into a virtual 8-bit experience. On NYE, you'll be transformed into an 8-bit avatar, enter the virtual party space, and explore rooms full of entertainment and surprises. The party is also a tribute to all-time fave cinematic hero Nicolas Cage and includes a screening of Mandy, and the interactive quest, photo booths, and video installations will all pay tribute to the king. There's so much more in store: magicians, game rooms, tarot, even personalized poems from Typewriter Rodeo.
    Thu., Dec. 31, 8pm. $25 and up.
