'Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over' World premiere
Hey, hey, it's a big-time world premiere right in our backyard.
The July 25 wide release of the third (and, presumably, final) installment in the hugely popular Spy Kids franchise is fast upon us -- and even faster for Austinites with deep, deep pockets. Austin and the Paramount Theatre will play host to the world premiere of Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over -- that's right, kids, the world premiere -- on Sunday, July 13. Ticket holders will get a chance to rub elbows with writer/director Robert Rodriguez and stars Sylvester Stallone, Bill Paxton, Alexa Vega, and Daryl Sabara at the screening, the post-show banquet, and the Congress Avenue carnival. Of course, that kind of access doesn't come cheap, which is why a single adult seat will run you $1,000; a single adult with child, $750; and single child, $500. Miramax Films and Troublemaker Studios have pledged to donate the profits from 200 of the seats to local organizations, the Austin Film Society, and the Children's Advocacy Center.
