In a magical land not too far away, two good princesses teamed up with a castle of moving images to present two very over-the-top films from the eighties for you to drink along to without TOO much irony. Come join us as Cinema Speakeasy and the Downtown Independent present a double-feature drink-along featuring ‘The Neverending Story‘ and ‘Labyrinth‘
A double feature drink-along is just what it sounds like. We watch two movies, and play drinking games. Costumes are highly encouraged (but not mandatory), and the best one, judged by our crowd applause-o-meter, wins a mystery prize, our undying respect, and the seat of honor!
Make your boyfriend dress as David Bowie. Make your girlfriend dress as a goblin. Wear a flying dog hat. Whatever you do, make it glitter, 80’s, and totally FANTASY!
You can buy delicious drinks (including beer) at the theatre. We’ll be implementing an interactive, theatre-wide drinking game, so make sure to bring your designated driver lest ye over-do it on the Coca-Cola (or, you know, the harder stuff)!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Friday, March 18th
Doors open at 7 for some pre-movie imbibing
The Neverending Story starts at 8 PM, Labyrinth starts at 9 PM (ish)
The Downtown Independent Theatre, 251 S. Main Street Los Angeles, 90012 213.617.1033

Memorize these drinking game rules so you miss no chance to chug your beverage of choice. Yell out what you see and take a swig…
- Every time you see a cute (magical flying) dog
- Every time you see a large snail
- Every time a rockbiter bites a rock
- Everytime you see David playing with his orb
- Every time you see a goblin looking shifty
- And a free-for-all dance party during the muppet-flailing, Jim Henson-puppeteered, David Bowie-prancing ‘Magic Dance’
We posted some of the photos from the Double-Feature of ‘Labyrinth’ and ‘The Neverending Story’ – which happened on March 18th at the Downtown Independent – to our Flickr page, and even more to our Facebook page.
