The Austin premiere of Robert Rodriguez's followup to last summer's hugely successful Spy Kids will be presented the weekend before its national release and will be shown via digital projection. Rodriguez will join cast members Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, Danny Trejo, Matt O'Leary, Emily Osment, and Bill Paxton, and the premiere will be followed by a Q&A, drawings for door prizes featuring props from the film, and a carnival outside on Congress Avenue from 7-11pm.
